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 the Crysis Warhead benchmark demo 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.
- Crysis Warhead Avalanche Demo
- 1920 x 1200 Resolution
- 8x AA
- 15-minute load test
- 15-minute idle test
- Measurement is in watts
Lower = Better
Maximum power consumption was 238W loaded with Crysis Warhead, while idle power consumption was around 150W. Both are extremely low numbers, especially on an overclocked i7 system.
