But The Truck Broke Down Edition

Top Story

  • After years of telling motherboard makers to set PL1 = PL2, Intel now says not to do that, and also that it never said to do that.  (AnandTech)

    On Intel CPUs, PL1 is the long-term power level; PL2 is the short burst power level.

    On a high-end chip rated at 125W, PL2 is something like 253W.  On the top of the line 14900KS, it is increased to 320W officially, and 400W or more unofficially.

    This produces great benchmark results but unfortunately fries the chips.

    Of course, if you throttle the chips back to the official official power limits, all the existing benchmark results become fairy tales.

    So if you're looking for a high-end CPU right now, go AMD.

    If you're looking at a mid-range CPU like Intel's i5-14500, none of this is likely to matter.  It's a good chip.

1 Is down?  It doesn't respond when I browse to it.

2 Yeah, it fell down a flight of stairs.  Fixed now.

I'll be moving it to a new server; current server is having some issues.
