Yeah. No. There's multiple factors not mentioned, or even thought of, by that article. Not everything that creates heat actually uses power, but is a direct result of power used. Namely the cache will create a ton of heat disproportionate to the amount of 'power consumed'.
There's also the fact that Ryzen are governed cpus that Intel 12th gen are not. Starting at @ 60°C, a Ryzen enters its governing state. It will physically downclock cores by @ 50-100MHz depending on power, loads and temps. Intel will boost to whatever max turbo is set in bios, regardless of power used or temps, only downclocking after hitting thermal limits.
So by @ 80°C, Ryzens reach maximim standard boosts, immaterial of the actual boosts per core attainable. A 5800x, 5800x3D, 5900x, 5950x is fully capable of hitting its default 142w socket power, IF cooling can keep it under @ 80°C.
The 5800X3D hit @ 80°C, so only used 73w. But that was Not the same as the thermal output which was far more than the 'power consumed' as is evidenced by the fact it hit almost 80°C on a 360mm aio, putting it in the 250ish watt range, thermally.
Not exactly sure What they did to that 12900k, but that's a 250w cpu with MCE enabled, which can be kept to @ 80ish°C with the H150i. The Corsair H150i is a @ 350w capacity cooler.
Don't tell me I'm wrong unless you can bring the facts, not dragging up an article with obvious discrepancies and questionable testing methodology. Try looking up GamersNexus or Hardware Unboxed or Anandtech reviews for the 12900k, Ryzen 5800X3D and H150i.
