PNY GTX 980 XLR8 Review

   -   

PNY GTX 980 XLR8 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 Heaven Benchmark version 4.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A fifteen-minute load test will be used to heat up the GPU, with the highest power usage recorded as the final result. The idle results will be measured after fifteen minutes of inactivity on the system with the lowest recorded power usage as the final result.

Settings

  • Unigine 4.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1080 resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 
 

 

The power consumption results from PNY's GTX 980 XLR8 are right on par with NVIDIA's reference card at idle. When under load, the margin between the PNY and reference solution varies between eight watts at stock speeds and six watts when overclocked. Not bad, considering the noise and thermal profiles.
