In the case of 9900k vs 10700k, the 10-series CPUs have the benefit of having its TDP spread out across two extra cores worth of die area and having its two worst cores disabled. I'd imagine that having a significant positive impact on overall power-efficiency and slightly relaxed cooling requirements from reduced power density.
Even though the heat density could be lower, what about the leakage through the disabled cores?
