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. For load testing the GTX 500 series, I will once again use Crysis Warhead run at 2560 x 1600 using the Gamer setting with 8xAA looping the Avalanche benchmark scenario.

Settings

  • MSI Kombuster Stability test
  • 1920 x 1200 Resolution
  • 8XAA
  • 15 minute load test
  • 15 minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

   

Lower = Better

 

Power consumption is low for most of the cards. The GTX 480 shows its inefficiency in load testing. The Sapphire 5850 also exhibits odd power consumption at stock clocks, along with the rest of the AMD single GPU crowd consuming more power than the dual-GPU card. The rest of the NVIDIA crowd consumed similar amounts.
