Videocard Power Consumption

Here's how this videocard stacks up in real life against a various other videocards for power draw. PCSTATS measures total system power draw and compares that in 3D loaded (max value recorded in 3DMark06) and idle states (at Windows desktop). The power supply used in each test is an A-PFC compliant PC Power and Cooling 750W model.

The move to a 40nm manufacturing node has had a very good impact on the overall power draw of the ASUS EAH5850 DirectCU TOP in both idle and load situations. The videocard draws less wattage than its predecessor the Radeon HD 4890 under load (total system power draw of 197W vs 225W), despite having double the transistor count.

Next up, PCSTATS tries its hand at overclocking the ASUS EAH5850 DirectCU TOP videocard way beyond its pre-overclocked levels. How fast did we get...
