Help Me Please Power Consumption: Up To 150W

AGP cards that need an extra power input will have a molex power connector (9800 Pro for example). These factors include the following: (In general order of which effects peak power the most to the least) Die size/chip architecture/fabrication process (110nm/90nm/65nm/55nm etc) - Smaller process equals a smaller die, See the examples I mention below for what I mean, but needless to say if you're doing any form of volt modding, make sure you have a beefy PSU that's up Typical 3D consumption - is the typical max 3D draw of your card whilst running a regular game, 3D app or possibly even GPGPU task.

AMDs route is less accurate but isn't application specific and thus a bit more elegant a solution. A companies job is to make stuff to sell to us, and if for some reason we aren't buying, to find some way to make us think we need it. Link Alright, below is based loosley on the format that michael999 had started in his thread but with lots more data and info. *** Please, if you find any info related How they get the wattage rating is by adding up the wattage/amperage on each line.

Other 970: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=186&sort=a8I would get the Evga ACX 2.0 970 if your case can fit a full sized card. They have tested their GPUs and found how much power each part of the chip uses, from this they've created an algorithm to estimate power draw based on usage of each metallica5456, Jan 27, 2016 #2 jacobhoh Thread Starter Joined: Jan 27, 2016 Messages: 16 im geting a ASUS Radeon R7 250X and i have a 350w power supply jacobhoh, Jan

No, because as soon as a part is stressed by something I do, it could easily jump way beyond the PSU specification.

Computer parts often use less power than their official rating. #14 piasabird, Apr 11, 2016 poohbear Platinum Member Joined: Mar 11, 2003 Messages: 2,271 Likes Received: 4 For maximum efficiency https://tapatalk.com/topic/21761-anandtech-forums/2469692-very-low-power-consumption-150w-max-on-gaming-pc Idle consumption - is typically taken in windows at the desktop with nothing happening on screen. 2D consumption - is any load put on a card that's not 3D or GPGPU Of course it doesn't work that way due to limitations in the circuitry on the GPU itself and it will draw from all power sources, but you see what I mean So you should take the total wattage rating on a power supply with a grain of salt.

Currently I still have the card bundled with my PC - Nvidia GT 630, a low end card.I want to replace it with a 2 Gb ASUS HD7850. Several functions may not work. If I run AVX prime 95 and uningine valley at the same time, I can observe upwards of 800 watts power usage. 800+ watts with all my overclocks, but if I Eg On the 9800GTX, increasing the core clock by 200MHz and increasing the voltage by 0.308v caused peak power draw to increase by 75W. 68.9% increase in peak power draw for

So it can be a safety factor to increase the wattage rating of the power supply a bit.

But they know what they are doing and have taken special care in the choice of hardware and monitoring, so it is not recommended.

I've seen those P3 watt meters having inaccurate readings and had to replace one. Power supply recommendations are usually a lot higher than is really necessary, I find. #11 Yuriman, Apr 11, 2016 WackyWRZ Member Joined: Mar 8, 2014 Messages: 121 Likes Received: 0 https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41aHr7NS9pL.jpg This is a common one that is accurate, however the design may have since been taken and used for cheaper ones too. #10 darkfalz, Apr 10, 2016 Yuriman Diamond

You have it using about the same power as an 9800 gtx, almost twice as much as the 8800 gs and they are supposed to be the exact same card.

Not many people truly need: 32 GB of 'gaming' ram, GTX 980ti cards (1-3 SLI), PCIe hard drives, $400 motherboards, $200 sound cards, 1000w power supplies, 5930k CPUs, or half of Yes, my password is: Forgot your password?

For example: I have a 5960x @ 140w TDP and a 980ti @ 250 watt TDP. Once reported, our moderators will be notified and the post will be reviewed. solved Does this graphics card require a 6 pin power connector? Since this card tops out at 12.5 Amperes and there are other things in the machine that use this, let's triple that and look for a 37.5 Ampere or better 12

No one in their right mind would buy a 550W PSU for a 500W load system, that'd just place an unnecessarily high load on the unit, causing it to heat up, Under full load, I would expect them to use about that much power, and I could proably get away with a 600-650 watt PSU to power them.I have my 5960x overclocked
