Intel has released the full details of the power usage of its new Comet Lake 10th-gen desktop processors, letting us know the official ratings for CPU power consumption when pushed to the maximum boost speeds – which are very different to the base clock speeds (with no Turbo active).

It’s a bit of a jargon attack, but the power draw at stock clock speeds is known as ‘PL1’ (Power Level 1) and this was the only info Intel released when its 10th-gen processors launched, leaving some folks disgruntled that they weren’t being informed of the full spec and power usage when boost kicks in.
