Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak wattage of the entire system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine's Heaven Benchmark version 3.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A 15-minute load test will be used to simulate maximum load with the highest measured wattage value recorded as the result. The idle results will measured as the lowest wattage value recorded with no activity on the system.


  • Unigine 3.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1080 Resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts












There is no doubt that feeding a dual GPU card is going to provide some power challenges, but a measure of success is going to be how well it fares against previous generation products. In all four scenarios the GTX 690 uses less power than the GTX 590 at idle and under load by measurable margins. Especially impressive when you look at the performance delivered by the GTX 690.
