I just want to see a comparison of the power usage of Intel CPU's.

I've been trying to find a comparison chart from Intel, but I haven't found anything...

Thanks for any help!

I don't think that anyone made real power usage comparison. Manufacturer's data and CPU TDP is on Intel site or just type in google 'ark' and cpu model and first link is almost always to the cpu you are looking for. You can browse them here http://ark.intel.com/#@Processors
There are lists with TDP in table like here:
http://ark.intel.com/products/family/88392/6th-Generation-Intel-Core-i7-Processors#@Desktop

TDP is not real power usage but maximum expected wattage. Real wattage can be lower or in some cases slightly higher ( for Intel it's usually lower ). It also depends on VID, temperature and other things. Voltage is not constant ( unless you set it manually ).
