NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 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
At idle the NVIDIA GTX 760 is at the lower end of the comparison cards at 116W at stock speeds and 120W when overclocked. Under load NVIDIA's GTX 760 stays under 300W at stock speeds and is more efficient than every card except the GTX 660Ti when the clock speeds are ramped up.
