The power consumption of modern GPUs compared

Posted on Friday, February 03 2006 @ 01:21:17 CET by


X-bit Labs has an interesting article today, in which they compare the power consumption of premium, high-end, mainstream and entry-level graphics cards from ATI and NVIDIA.
Both graphics adapters and central processing units (CPUs) used to consume so negligible amount of power ten years ago that no one cared about it: mainstream personal computers used 200W power supply units for years and we could not imagine that once we’ll need more. But the times have changed and today graphics cards alone can eat up to 120W of power, whereas dual-core processors can consume nearly 180W , therefore, we have to consider power consumption when buying or assembling new computers.
