Power Used in Overclocking
No, that is not a mistake, we did not accidentally hit the 2 before the 9...you overclockers are the worst. With total wattage used increasing by almost 20% we throw out another big "Tisk tisk".
In all seriousness, it is interesting to see what different applications do to overall power draw, and what kind of impact overclocking has on your power supply. The next time someone says you do not need a good power supply to overclock give them two whacks across the back of the head, one from the team at TweakTown and one for yourself.
Our new Power Analyzer is going to come in extremely useful for future reviews. It will be first used in our upcoming HD 2900 XT article and in the future we will be paying more attention to what impact hardware has on the old power supply.
We hope you enjoyed the article and had a good laugh, we had better get back to those more serious reviews now but this was something interesting to look at nonetheless.
