I saw in reviews that the 2200G draw around 70W from the wall when stressed.
How come I see only 20W on HWMonitor under Prime95 test?

I understand that not 100% of the wattage drawn from the wall PSU goes to the CPU, but 20 out of 70 watts is very low still?

Or, since it's an APU, I have to stress both CPU and GPU to get these results? What software can stress both the same time?

Edit: Wait, I have a dedicated GPU.. so I can't test both
Edit 2: My build:

CPU: Ryzen 3 2200G
Motherboard: Asrock B450M Pro4
Ram: Crucial Ballistix 3200 MHz CL16 32GB (16GBx2)
SSD/HDD: Some old Toshiba HDD
GPU: RTX 3060
PSU: Cooler Master 750W v2 white

*I know this build is weird, I just ordered some new components this Black Friday to upgrade it
