Lowest Prices

Testing:

Power Consumption of the system will be measured in both idle states and loaded states and will take into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use MSI Kombuster to load the GPU for a 15 minute test and use the peak load of the system as my result for the maximum load. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system.

Settings

  • MSI Kombuster Stability test
  • 1920x1200 Resolution
  • 8XAA
  • 15 minute load test
  • 15 minute idle test
  • Measurement is in Watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower = Better

 

The power consumption under load is markedly better than the HD 5870 and HD 5850. The lower power consumption and similar gaming performance shows an improvement in the power management of the architecture.
