Testing:

Power Consumption of the system will be measured in both idle states and load stated 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 an 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.

Settings

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower = Better

 

When you look at the power consumption numbers for the Toxic 5970 4GB, the idle power usage and load usage are significantly higher than the 2GB model. But to put it into perspective, you really need to look at the overclocked HD 5970 2GB usage numbers for a fair comparison as the Toxic runs clock speeds similar to the overclock reached on the 2GB model. Under load, the Toxic is more efficient than the manually overclocked HD 5970 2GB from Sapphire. At idle, the Toxic uses 15 watts more than the 2GB model. So at idle, the 2GB card at both stock and overclocked speeds is more efficient in an idle state.
