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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower = Better

 

The power consumption numbers for the XFX card are pretty good. The card scores in the middle of the road here which is impressive considering that it is routinely in the upper realm of the performance benchmarks results. The card is definitely using its resources efficiently, even while overclocked.
