65W TDP, but draws 200W+ at full load, wut? Even higher than the 125W TDP variant, huh?

I wonder how many lawyers were involved to create the * and subsequent small print to weasel Intel some protection from the blatant false advertising.

But the consequences are real. I have seen numerous posts in other forums with users running into poor or inconsistent performance from their new system builds, having selected Intel because of AMD stock shortages. There are lot of novice builders during these COVID times that think nothing of the PSU, much less the misleading claims from Intel on power usage, and purchase a generic 650W PSU to pair with their i7 or i9 and 3080 or 6800.
The whole part about this being a 65 watt CPU and they include a cheap ass cooler that will dissipate ~110 watts when in actuality if cooled properly it will eat over 200 watts and perform accordingly, is Uber confusing.

At least AMD includes a decent air cooler w/its similar cpus.
