PowerColor PCS+ R9 390 8GB 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

Whereas AMD-based cards of late have been power hogs, the R9 390 seems to deliver decent power consumption numbers by comparison. Cranking up the voltage and fan speed takes a toll on the idle numbers when overclocked, but it's good to see the load numbers dropping slightly. The lower power usage and immense PCS+ cooling solution really work well together.
