Power Consumption

Going completely off our previous power testing on the MSI card and the reference card I had an idea of where we would fall with SLI numbers. Of course that would be assuming that both cards are under load the same and as great as SLI is, there is still the possibility that both cards aren’t under the same load. In our case we saw the load wattage draw jump up to 428 watts, 109 watts over the reference card load wattage. That isn’t the full wattage that a card should pull, but it is still not bad. Even more impressive is that our whole test bench with an Intel 3860X, SSD, Hard drive, motherboard, and even water cooling along with TWO video cards. I was also happy with the power draw at idle, with two cards in SLI the idle draw wasn’t much more than a single card.
