Testing:

Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak wattage of the entire system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine's Heaven Benchmark version 3.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A 15-minute load test will be used to simulate maximum load with the highest measured wattage value recorded as the result. The idle results will be measured as the lowest wattage value recorded with no activity on the system.

Settings

  • Unigine 3.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920 x 1080 Resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Power consumption reiterates what the benchmarks before were showing like a mirror image. High performance cards consume higher amounts of power while lower performance consume less. That is a given. The MSI card gets the lowest power consumption numbers across the board and by far at load! 175W for total system draw is incredible.
