MSI R9 380 Gaming 2G 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

Surprisingly, MSI's R9 380 Gaming 2G is not as frugal on power as I would like to see when compared to the R9 285 and GTX 960. At idle speeds, it delivers the highest amount of current used, both stock and overclocked. Droping the fan speed to zero does not seem to help the power consumption at idle.
