Güç tüketimi ve sıcaklık mevzuları
We did the power consumption tests on our old E8500 test rig. These results reflect a full test system power consumption on the wall outlet; not just graphics card.
Idle power consumption is better on an ATI Radeon HD 5000 series card.
Similar situation. GeForce GTX 480, as hinted in cooler design, is a power hungry beast.
Idle temperature results are within norms.
…but stress test changes everything. Remember that the GTX 480's cooling setup is quite thorough. The fan noise gets a lot higher than the Radeons.
Caution: GTX 480's heatsink can be accessed from the outside of the hood. Be careful when removing the GTX 480 from the system after heavy usage.
