Yet another GTX 480 test incl. Furmark
« on: April 12, 2010, 06:41:23 PM »
HT4U built some custom hardware to measure the power drain of the GPU only. Actually they tested a bunch of contemporary graphic cards.

GTX 480 power drain:
Idle: 48.71 Watt
Tom Clancy's HAWX DX9:  230.4 Watt
Stalker CoP: 239.86 Watt
Heaven 2: 242.6 Watt
NVIDIA SuperSonic-Demo: 262.70 Watt
3DMark06: 283.16 Watt
Furmark: 317.84 Watt

According to HT4U NVIDIA is aware that Furmark needs much more than 250 Watt and calls it "not representative".

P.S:
It appears that the "Palit GeForce 9800 GT Green" cannot stand Furmark load.
