Per recent article in The Register, "In pursuit of ever-higher compute density, chipmakers are juicing their chips with more and more power, and according to the Uptime Institute, this could spell trouble for many legacy datacenters ill equipped to handle new, higher wattage systems." Yes, according to The Register, power is getting more expensive from the power consumption (sheer wattage) point of view and the amount of heat those systems generate.

Why use power-hungry and heat-producing Xeons, if Impact Components can build power-economical rackmount & wallmount systems and workstations with sufficient performance based on the latest 13th Generation Intel Core i processors based on Kontron's latest industrial-grade ATX motherboard K3851-R. For instance, Impact now produces such systems with i9-13900 which is specified by Intel at 24 total cores and 32 threads @ 3 GHz Performance-Core Base Frequency and 2.2 GHz Efficient-Core Base Frequency.
