Why CPU TDP is lower than GPU TDP?
Please check these topics first.
Hi! Great to see the new announcement for TDP! Results are pretty amazing!
Just out of curiosity. It seems like the CPU heatsink is larger than the GPU heat sink. However the TDP for CPU is 180W, which is lower than the GPU TDP. Is there any reason for that?
Actually, the heat exchange surface is the same between the two radiators. GPU radiator form factor allows better performance than CPU radiator. This design was necessary in order to support graphic cards which usually consume more energy than processors.
