How much power does your VGA card require?

Posted on Sunday, January 25 2009 @ 16:00:57 CET by


Tom's Hardware has taken a look at the real-life power consumption of dozens of graphics cards, you can check it out over here.
The power consumption of today's graphics cards has increased a lot. The top models demand between 110 and 270 watts from the power supply; in fact, a powerful graphics card under full load requires as much power as the rest of the components of a PC system combined. If you’re planning to upgrade to a dual-chip card or to extend your system with a second video card using SLI or CrossFire, then the GPU plays the biggest role in determining how many watts your next power supply must be capable of providing.
