PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2 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.


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

















As expected, power consumption for the R9 295X2 was up over 700 watts of draw in both the stock and overclocked testing. That being said, under load it came in at less than what you would see with a pair of R9 290X cards in CrossFire. Overclocking the R9 295X2 showed a 27-watt increase as the clock speed increased to the maximum speeds. The GTX 780 Ti SLI combo had significantly lower power draw in both loaded scenarios.
