With our reference GeForce GTX 980 from NVIDIA consuming around 280W, the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE was consuming 320W or so during our Battlefield 4 testing at 2560x1440. Considering the MSI card has two 8-pin PCIe power connectors versus the two 6-pin PCIe power connectors on the reference card, this is not too much more power.
But as you can see, from our overclocking on the MSI card, the power consumption jumps up 40W to 360W or so in Battlefield 4. 360W is still fine, as its 90W lower than the SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 8GB Tri-X, and 265W less than the same card from SAPPHIRE but overclocked.
As you can see, the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE is one of the quietest cards we've tested.
