While Intel managed to significantly cut power consumtion, the core temperature during load is almost as high as with Netburst-based Pentium XE 955 and about 10°C higher than compareable AMD chips, which boast the same power consumption figures when measured at the wall outlet.
If measured power consumption at the wall is the same, but the core temps are higher, then there are only two possible conclusions:
  1. Intel's reporting of temp differs somewhat from AMD's; this can only be verified with a thermocouple and an independent temperature meter.
  2. Intel isn't getting the heat off the chip as well as AMD.
I've heard some rumblings that suggest that Intel may have intentionally borked the IHS mounting on the lower-end chips to keep people from overclocking them so much.

That'd be sneaky, not to mention underhanded. Again with the horsepoop...

There is a number 3 to Gizmo's list for possible reasons.

3. AMD chipsets and other sub systems require more power than amd's thus intels chip uses a bigger % of the total power used -> has to dissipate more heat.

oh he compares to other 65nm netbursts on terms of thermal density but fails to remember the conroe core is significantly smaller than the presler core
