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".

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