>why RISC chips always run so fucking hot
ARM is RISC and run really cold. I don't think that a issue is RISC. Power was constructed primarilly for servers, so it will have more cores running, more L1 cache entries, so on.

From what I know, adaptative methods. For example, the clock and voltage adapts to the need of the user.
