Power Consumption

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 an AC wall socket).

ASUS and GIGABYTE put a lot of emphasis on their new power management technology, With each company saying it has the edge, in reality both are almost identical.

Heat Generation

As a new measure, we are now monitoring the heat generation from the key components on the motherboards, this being the Northbridge, Southbridge (if it contains one) as well as the Mosfets around the CPU. The results are recorded at idle and load during the power consumption tests.

Both boards do a fantastic job at keeping things cool. GIGABYTE wins out by a few degrees here.
