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 2560 x 1600 using the Gamer setting with 8xAA looping the Avalanche benchmark scenario.

Settings

  • MSI Kombuster Stability test
  • 1920 x 1200 Resolution
  • 8XAA
  • 15 minute load test
  • 15 minute idle test
  • Measurement is in Watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   
   

Lower = Better

 

As you can imagine, when you overclock your video card, your power consumption is going to go up with your clock speeds. However, the Sapphire HD6870 Vapor-X was able to keep its ground in the power consumption testing, it was able to stay towards the bottom of the barrel, right around its little brother again, the Sapphire HD6870.
