All these high core count power hungry Intel CPUs remind me of the early 1970s when V8/V10 muscle cars were all the rage. Then the oil crisis came along in 1973. All of a sudden people stopped buying as many of these cars because the cost of gasoline made them too expensive to operate. The new Apple M1 is like that '73 Honda civic that had an answer to the high gas prices. A more efficient engine/car that got you where you needed to go. The difference with the M1 compared to Intel CPUs is that your Honda Civic now saves money on gas but you can still beat the muscle car in the 1/4 mile on a drag strip.Yes. Exactly.
I've run my motherboard with and without the additional 4-pin EPS connector connected and everything was fine under both scenarios.
For anyone reading this that's too young to remember the first US released Civic see this article:
