EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN 6GB SuperClocked Video Cards in SLI - Power Consumption Test

We find out what kind of performance a $2,000 video card setup gives us in the form of two EVGA GTX TITAN 6GB SuperClocked video cards in SLI mode.

Power Consumption Test

 

 

Using our PROVA Power Analyzer WM-01 or "Power Thingy" as it has become quickly known as to our readers, we are now able to find out what kind of power is being used by our test system and the associated graphics cards installed. Keep in mind; it tests the complete system (minus LCD monitor, which is plugged directly into AC wall socket).

 

There are a few important notes to remember though; while our maximum power is taken in 3DMark06 at the same exact point, we have seen in particular tests the power being drawn as much as 10% more. We test at the exact same stage every time; therefore tests should be very consistent and accurate.

 

The other thing to remember is that our test system is bare minimum - only a SSD hard drive is used with a single CD ROM and minimal cooling fans.

 

So while the system might draw 400 watts in our test system, placing it into your own PC with a number of other items, the draw is going to be higher.

Power draw is high at almost 850 watts at load. If you're investing in a $2,000 video card setup, though, we would like to think you've also invested in a quality and high-wattage PSU, like the Corsair AX1200 that we use.
