ATI R600 to consume peak 250W

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Although it seems quite a lot (and frankly I don't really believe it) it seems the next Graphic chip from ATI is gonna suck up to 250W , linky here. Crossfire anyone???

Inquirer...pfft.

But yah. Does that mean crossfire will take 500W? That PPC 1kW is looking tasty.

crossFIRE indeed... if true. Not the most reliable source

You cracked me up...well, sorta.

Anyone know how much 7950GX2 SLI takes?

It seems to suck (acording to the same source) around 150W peak and each of the 2 GPUs grom the 7950GX2 are mobile GPUs as far as I know.

It is true that the new GPU line from ATi & nVidia will require 200w upto 300w of power.

There is small amounts of info saying ATi is producing the cards as an external card... This means it will use its own power source... it also means it may be possible for Laptop users to use these cards depending on how this feature will be implemented.

My thinking is that ATi and nVidia will release both internal and external cards giving a bigger range to the consumer depending on their RIG and on their price range.

Unfortunetley there is no way round the power consumption so were gonna have to like it or lump it.

Power companys rub their hands with glee

Wow thats alot of juice, hope my 580 watt will handle that...

But more importantly 64 Pipelines... Wow

"This means that the R600 will consume twice as much power, and probably will end up close to twice as warm but we also hear it will get much faster then the current cards with sixty four pipelines. It could easily end up twice as fast than the current ATI offerings."

This card will certainly impressive if the Inquirer is correct, but still 250 watts is painful.

Its not just this Inquirer... They suck but Anadtech Neowin and other major news tech sites have stated the same news... It was a ATi head that made a statement at the Korean trade show.

We'll probably still want dual cards, but it seems ATI is trying to develop a single card that will eliminate the needs for dual. In that case, 250W is about the same as a Crossfire set up right now....

I'm really thinking to build that power plant behind my house... think about this for a moment: the top gaming platform in 6 months. 1xKentsfield - 200w, 2xR600 Crossfire - 500W(!), add some ram, some HDDs and a DVD+RW and you reach 1000W
Really folks, either we get banckrupt by the electric bill or we make an investment in a power plant. Who's with me?
