I think that was on twitter.
In any case, I'm working with these processors right now.
On the new Ryzens, the power usage is actually quite tunable.
There are three settings.
1) Package Power Tracking: The PPT threshold is the allowed socket power
consumption permitted across the voltage rails supplying the socket.
2) Thermal Design Current: The maximum current (TDC) (amps) that can be
delivered by a specific motherboards voltage regulator configuration in
3) Electrical Design Current: The maximum current (EDC) (amps) that can be
delivered by a specific motherboards voltage regulator configuration in a
peak (spike) condition for a short period of time.
My goal is to tweak the 105W TDP R7-5800X so it
draws power like the 65W-TDP R5-5600X
This is desk-side cluster low power stuff.
I am using extension cable-plug for Limulus blades
that have an in-line current meter (normally used for solar panels).
Now I can load them up and watch exactly how much current is being
pulled across the 12V rails.
