Seems an odd choice for 2022
With many people worrying about energy pricing and sustainable computing, it seems an odd choice to push such a power hungry chip family in 2022
You could kinda excuse it in the top end i7/i9 processors as you're paying for a performance premium, but in i5 land, is a 24 thread, 180TDP really a good choice for what will end up being the go-to business desktop?
combining that with talks of ever increasing clock speeds, it kinda feels like Intel has gone full circle back to the Pentium 4 era, where clock speed was king, efficiency be damned, and chips ran hot enough to melt motherboards (And gave AMD a unique and compelling USP with their "more is less" Athlon XP Range)
It's a long way from the original Intel Core design ideas.
