GTX 690 True Power Measurement

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I wanted to see exactly what my power draw for the 690 with an overclock would look like. I currently have a 750w Seasonic that in reviews was actually pulling a pretty consistent 900w+.

I wanted to know if I would need to upgrade my power supply if and when I grab a second 690.
These are my results. Firstly, I had shipped to me a wattage power reader... Seen here

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882715001

This is basically a device that you plug your computer into and it tells you what your true and real time power use is.




Secondly the overclock and power target I am running with for this test. These settings have been stable for me and run relatively cool even in the hot summer months.




Now for some results:

My system at idle:



My system pegged the same for BF3 Ultra vsync off and CS GO ultra vsync off. One runs in the 60 - 100's, the other 300's. You guess. But the card was running full boar either way.



Lastly this is just prime95 as a reference in case you were wondering. No overclock on this CPU in the summer.



Anyways, I can test other things if they are requested. Curious as to what two 680's actually use.

So would I be wrong in thinking I can run two 690's off one 750w supply? Anyways, I can test other things if they are requested. Curious as to what to 680's actually use.


well i put x2 690 in psu cacalator and it sat 566wats but ummm u can try here http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/Power

I just find it strange Nvidia recommends a 650w minimum for the 690 when a 750w could probably run two no problem.
