Temperature and power consumption

The Core i9-10980XE has the same 165W TDP as the Core i9-9980XE. Power consumption numbers are largely similar, both at load and idle. Temperature performance is a different ball game though, and the Core i9-10980XE demonstrates much improved thermals compared to the Core i9-9980XE.
