Yet, forums are loud of people claiming how cool new Ryzens run (even though they don't) while reviews can't get over Intel's power consumption figures, effectively spreading misbelief that Intel CPUs run hot. The internet is a weird place.Yes, you're correct.
AMD run hotter on some chips because they have the higher heat density - 80mm2 vs 200mm2+
I mean... that alone explains a lot, heat wise.
On top of that, they measure temps different. Intel likes to report a more averaged temp, while AMD reports the peak temp - and far more often.
So if both chips measured 60C with a spike to 70C for 5ms, the intel wouldnt report that spike (Zen2 and 3 report every 1ms.... waaaaaaaay more often than intel - i cant find much, but estimates seem to be between 15ms and 30ms)
In context of the 12900K, just because it eats a lot of power when unlocked, we can't be sure that it'll also run hot - though the new 10 nm process (and increased density) suggest that it might. We'll see.
