Testing:

Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine's Heaven Benchmark version 2.5 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A 15-minute load test will be used to heat up the GPU, with the highest measured temperature recorded as the result. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system. With dual-GPU setups, the two core temperatures will be averaged.

Settings

  • Unigine 2.5 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1200 Resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not only did the two XFX cards stay nice and cool with their dual fanned coolers, they kept the power consumption nice and low as well. While the cards weren't the most efficient in our suite, they didn't draw so much power that you'd be paying an arm and a leg every time you wanted to play a game.
