BTW correct me if I'm wrong but AMD measured their TDP differently from Intel, right? AMD were measuring the average, while intel was just showing the peak. If memory serves me right then AMD's 115W equals Intel's 130W chips.
No, it's basic logic. Since the 5k series doesn't have the issue, it is clearly something that ATI was able to solve.
