Comprehensive Threadripper tests - memory vs cpu freq at capped power

Apparently there are some special cpu registers you can read to get power
used by some components, probably not highly accurate but likely indicative.

Anandtech's review (
) covered some of this, they found the 2950WX infinity fabric was using 34
W at low load rising to 43 W at higher load. At low load the interconnect
was using more power than the cpu cores.
