MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G Testing:

Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine Heaven Benchmark version 4.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A fifteen-minute load test will be used to heat up the GPU, with the highest power usage recorded as the final result. The idle results will be measured after fifteen minutes of inactivity on the system with the lowest recorded power usage as the final result.

Settings

  • Unigine 4.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1080 resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

The energy efficiency of the Maxwell core is impressive to say the least when comparing to the power consumed by AMD's R9 290X. In each of the load tests, the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G delivers power consumption results on par with or better than the reference card when under load.
