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.

Lower = Better


This is obviously one test were the MSI R6850 Cyclone Power Edition has a distinct advantage. At stock OC settings, the card runs a good bit cooler and even when the voltage tweak is applied, the card remains very competitive. Impressive.
