MSI R9 270X 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's Heaven Benchmark version 4.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A 15-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 15 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Idle power consumption on the MSI R9 270X Hawk is slightly higher than the Devil HD 7870 in all four tests, but is a spot-on comparison with the Powercolor card using three smaller fan blades instead of the larger Propeller blade fans used on the R9 270X Hawk.
