AMD Ryzen X570 Motherboards Draw More Power Than X470

I love a good mystery...don't you?

The newer Prime95 shows a dramatic reduction in power consumption on X470 compared with what we measured for X570 in this test. We confirmed the result repeatedly but don’t have an explanation for it. Both X570 motherboards maintain relatively steady power consumption between the two Prime95 variants now, but the X470 motherboard drops by 20W. The MSI Godlike uses 15-16W more than the Asus X570 Crosshair VIII Hero.
