I did reply to that point above with some baseless speculation, but now I can back up my baseless speculation with unscientific data :)

According to whatever `powerstat -R` measures on my laptop, running hardware-accelerated SHA-256 in a loop for a minute or so takes 26.86 Watts on average. Doing the same with AVX-512 BLAKE3 takes 29.53 Watts, 10% more. Factoring in the 4.69x difference in throughput reported by those loops, the overall energy/byte for BLAKE3 is 4.27x lower than SHA-256. This is my first time running a power benchmark, so if this sounds implausible hopefully someone can catch my mistakes.
