980ti draws average of 80w and sometimes more from pci-e , that being said looks like they are investigating the issue and in touch with those reviewers.

Dammit this sux, AMD cannot afford to stumble like this. I'm praying this gets sorted immediately. I'm a high end user and any perceived AMD stumble puts my next upgrade on a back burner for Nvidia. Yes I'm being selfish lol. :D

 

Seriously could you imagine if someone's PC went up in smoke. It would get press like Bendgate with apple iphone 6's for two weeks etc of bad press...lol and the Meme's would never stop here on this site.

Check how much it draws at maximum in gaming loop part 80.52w from motherboards 12v
Average probably wasn't the best use of words by me though tongue.gif

THG measures at intervals of half a microsecond, maximum is almost irrelevant in their measurements. Hell, while we're at it, rx480 draws maximum of almost 150w from the slot.

Fine, were you crying about Asus 960 strix then? I bet you weren't.

This is the original link: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-960,4038-8.html

The very frequent spikes beyond the motherboard slot’s supposed limit won’t cause immediate damage to the hardware, but there might well be long-term repercussions that are hard to judge now. The same goes for how the system might otherwise be impacted with problems such as “chirping” on-board sound when the mouse is moved.
The Asus GTX 960 Strix should do a much better job smoothing these spikes out.

Someone needs to post this to reddit ASAP and create some outrage.

More reasons not to buy Asus junk. Also, i would not even bother with the whole mess of PEG consumption but the fact of the matter: reference version is the one that goes to OEMs, ASUS Strix usually does not. Do you see the implications? All i see is potential loss of OEM sales for first batches of cards. And considering the distance between announcement and hard launch....
