XB273GXbmiiprzx - Is it really takes 80W? I've seen bigger ACER models in the same category with half power needed. Is that a typo or is that model truly eats that much power?

    The screen itself uses 25W typical. I can't remember if your has a USB hub included, if so each USB-C port on the hub needs a few more watts (3.5W?). Then some of these models have the LED lights built in, and those also take up power. I wouldn't be too surprised if they didn't end up saying something like "we'll always be under 80W, no matter what".
