my igpu has higher power consumption than dedicated gpu? help

specs: ryzen 9 7950x, msi b650 carbonm windows10 pro

my igpu is consuming 60watts just by browsing, watching youtube, tiktok, and general media browsing. i even tried to lower my monitor resolution from 1080p to 1366x768 but still consuming alot

because my gtx1660(which i sold sadly) was only using 15w-20w while doing minimal task. im using latest adrenalin(no software, just basic driver), and using latest chipset and bios

is it possible to undervolt igpu? maybe 50-70% power limit? what would be the easiest procedure? thank you for your any insights!

Guess so, never really investigated into this and I might just disable iGPU.

Took some snaps with the polling rate to minimum and its close.

Yellow CPU Power
Green "supposedly" iGPU Power
Red what the board is sending to the CPU

Since this is an interesting topic, I'll dig into it a bit. This values were at idle and the dGPU was taking less than 10watts.

I have the 7950X as well.
