    @XBit.
    GREAT article. From stock to OC, from idle to OCCT load, power consumption on each rail, 23 cards tested.

    All cards get power from the PCI-E slot, which you can clearly see the charts where they show exactly how much current is being drawn from each source.

    Very useful info,Too much power consumption in the top cards. Not only the bill but the entire planet will suffer the consequences of that. More is not better in this case. I wonder if the video cards will evolve just like the cars did in the 70's with the oil crisis. Is there any group or institution regulating the limits for power consumption in this field?
