Power Consumption


Power consumption is something that NVIDIA is getting very, very serious about and ZOTAC continues this following the reference GTX 960 specification very closely. This means we have the single 6-pin PCIe power connector, with a total TDP of 120W.


We ran two benchmarks at 1080p with maxed out details, BioShock Infinite and Metro: Last Light to measure the power consumption of our entire system, not just the GPU.




As you can see, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition and our entire LGA 2011 system consumes a total of 235W in Metro: Last Light, compared to the 280W and 300W of the GTX 980, and GTX 780 respectively. BioShock Infinite is a bit better on the power consumption, with the GTX 960 AMP! Edition and the entire system only consuming 200W compared to the 240W and 290W of the GTX 980 and GTX 970, respectively.
