Power ConsumptionWe measured power consumption between the power supply and the wall. This multiplies essentially amplifies any differences in power draw because the powersupply is not 100% efficient. Ideally we would measure power draw of the card, but it is very difficult determine to determine the power draw from both the PCIe bus and the 12V molex connector.
As we can see, the GeForce 7800 GTX delivers on it's promise of higer performance at lower power due to the 110nm manufacturing process. We can't wait to see what NVIDIA's mobile division has planned for this.
