What could possibly go wrong here? 🙄

They are using so much power because of servers running Intel CPUs, which suck huge amounts of power even when idling. They also create lots of heat, which means you need even more power to keep them cool.

I think I would try running Arm CPU servers before I started building more nuclear reactors to power my Intel CPU servers.

Very little, if anything.

Go do some research before handwringing.
Like, they're already using ARM tech and even more advanced chips and it's far from enough. The second law rules.
