    TL;DR Intel gets their new chip to look better than Ryzen in benchmarks by disabling half its cores and not configuring its ram

    Denmark consumed 31.4 billion kilowatt hours in electricity in 2015. As of July 1 of this year, Bitcoin mining used up approximately 30.1 billion kilowatt hours, according to the study.
    For the study, Krause and Thabet Tolaymat, an environmental engineer based in Cincinnati, Ohio, calculated the average energy consumed to create one US dollar's worth of four top virtual currencies—bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin and monero—over the 30-month period up to June 2018.
    That amount was 17, 7, 7 and 14 million joules, or megajoules (MJ), respectively.
    A joule is a unit of energy equivalent to the work required to produce one watt of power for one second.
    That is up to three times the energy needed to excavate gold, platinum or copper, they found. Of the metals examined, only aluminium—at 122 MJ per dollar's worth—was more energy intensive.
    The comparison with mining metals is kinda fun.
