Testing:

Power Consumption of the system will be measured in both idle states and loaded states and will take into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use MSI Kombuster to load the GPU for a 15 minute test and use the peak load of the system as my result for the maximum load. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system. For load testing the GTX 500 series, I will once again use Crysis Warhead run at 2560x1600 using the Gamer setting with 8xAA looping the Avalanche benchmark scenario.

Settings

  • MSI Kombuster Stability test
  • 1920x1200 Resolution
  • 8xAA
  • 15 minute load test
  • 15 minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

   

Lower = Better

 

The Palit GTX 570 Sonic Platinum didn't consume too much power at either of its idle settings. Once put at load, we saw the power consumption shoot up just as the temperatures had.
