Lowest Prices

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 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.

Settings

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower = Better

 

The power requirement for a single graphics card is reasonable, but when combined with another 4GB HD 5970 the power draw jumps considerably, and at load left me with only 100W remaining of a 1200W power supply.
