Total System Power Consumption

Before bringing this article to a close, we'd like to cover a few final data points--namely power consumption, noise, and overclocking. Throughout all of our benchmarking and testing, we monitored how much power our test system was consuming using a power meter. Our goal was to give you an idea as to how much power each configuration used while idling and while under a heavy workload. Please keep in mind that we were testing total system power consumption at the outlet here, not just the power being drawn by the graphics cards alone.

Total System Power Consumption
Tested at the Outlet

As its framerates have suggested throughout our testing, the new GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core Limited Edition card's power consumptions characteristics are in-line with is performance. While idling, the card consumed only slightly more power than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and slightly less than the GTX 570. The same is true for its power consumption while under load, but it was closer to the GeForce GTX 570 than the lower-end Ti card.
