NVIDIA, MSI, EVGA GTX 960 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

Energy efficiency of the Maxwell core clearly is on display here. The idle numbers are all pretty close, whether at stock or overclocked. The key here is how the GM206 cards from EVGA and MSI deliver best-in-class power efficiency when rocking the visuals.
