The installation must know the CPU power consumption and demand

The first is TDP (Thermal Design Power), see the name we should be able to guess, yes, is an indicator of heat, of course, is the choice of CPU radiator to pay attention to. Here, this is to radiator design indicators, not accurate parameters, such as the standard state of the heat consumption 85W, 90W, 93W CPU may be marked as 95W TDP, meaning that the selection of the corresponding capacity of the radiator is enough.

Then there's the TPP (Package Power Tracking) concept that's been popping up a lot after AMD's recent press conference. It represents the total power consumption of all units in the package. For example, the TDP of Ryzen 7000 is expected to be 125W, and the TPP is expected to be 170W. Why would Ryzen use such a statement? Just look at the more complex multi-chip mode under the hood, and just saying CPU power is easy to misunderstand.

The installation must know the CPU power consumption and demand

A metric similar to TPP is called Maximum Turbo Power in Intel's latest Core, and it is more specifically described as the amount of Power a CPU needs to temporarily increase its frequency when it is sufficiently powered and cooled. Intel's benchmark is much higher than that of the AMD TPP, which is twice as high as the Processor Base Power.

TPP or the maximum acceleration power, and they are of course the biggest relationship is the interface and "direct" interface of the motherboard power module. As the power increases and the design allowance is insufficient, the interface will of course have to change if the power supply pins are added. And the power module on the motherboard has to increase its current. Here, the xx phase of the power supply module does not directly describe its power supply capacity, but uses multiple groups in parallel to share work, reduce pressure and heat.

Finally, the power supply for the CPU. In the test, the current and total power (current × voltage) provided by the 12V CPU auxiliary power supply are far higher than the nominal power of CPU manufacturers, because the consumption of the mainboard power supply and other parts should be considered. Looking at the data, The core power supply requirement has doubled again, to 4 times, and so on AMD's power supply requirement should be another x 1.5. That should give us the power demand.
