comment Are faster processors hotter?
Each year, Intel has either a "tick" (smaller silicon pathways) or a "tock" (new architecture). Each one reduces power consumption per performance. But within a generation, clock speed (or number of cores) does dictate power consumption and temperatures. When both clock speed and the architecture/process are different, you'll have to do some tests.
