Lowest Prices

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.

Settings

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower = Better

 

From a power efficiency standpoint the Black Edition HD 6850 delivers slightly better power consumption numbers than the stock 6850 when run at stock clocks and slightly worse than it when overclocked. When compared to the EVGA 460 FTW, the Black Edition is the more power efficient solution.
