The Core i9 10980XE actually sipped slightly less power at stock settings than the 9980XE, which we did expect to see as Intel improves its process incrementally.
We set input voltage to 2.1v, VCore to 1.3v, enabled XMP, set LLC to Turbo mode on our GIGABYTE motherboard, and set a 4.8GHz all-core clock. The CPU didn't throttle, and temperatures stayed within acceptable levels.
With a custom loop, we wouldn't be surprised to see people hitting close to 5GHz with some AVX2/3 offsets. Here we didn't use offsets, but we also aren't running Prime95. For comparison, our 9980XE did 100MHz lower all core clock during its review.
