NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650Ti Boost 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 measured temperature recorded as the result. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system. With dual-GPU setups, the two core temperatures will be averaged.
- Unigine 4.0 Heaven Benchmark
- 1920x1080 Resolution
- 8x AA
- 15-minute load test
- 15-minute idle test
- Measurement is in watts
The one weakness with the GTX 650Ti Boost when compared to the HD 7790 is the amount of power consumed by the card. Of course it is powering an additional 1GB of memory and a less efficient blower style fan but here is where the HD 7790 is the better card. However the lower consumption is going to be indicative of the performance of the card in general.
