To be honest I would trust Kitguru's power numbers more, just based on their testing methodology. They are one of the only sites that does proper power supply testing, and that gear is very specific. If they can do accurate cross load load testing on the different rails of a 1000W psu properly, I think they can do system/GPU power consumption numbers. I wouldn't trust a TPU psu review if you payed me.

I fully realize that this is not a PSU, but I think the methodology as well as very nice power measuring instrumentation is in kitguru's favor...

I see it like this. I am in the market for a new card and my options are the 480, 1060 or 1070. I would love a 1070 but the price in the UK is too much still. I'm not paying £400 for the 970s replacement. That rules that out. So we're left with custom 480s or 1060s. Either of these cards is saving money for me as I have a little more in my budget. So in a way either of these cards is cheaping out a little as I'll need to upgrade again at the end of the year or the start of the new year.

So if I'm going to cheap out I'd rather do it with a 480 at this point and save myself some money. Seeing as it and the 1060 are within 10% or so of each other, I'd rather choose the card that has the potential in DX12 and Vulkan and with driver improvements. I'm also leaning more towards a 480 as I want to try AMD again after owning a slew of Nvidia cards. I sold my 980 last month so downgrading to a 1060 is slightly pointless, even if it means I am pocketing a healthy chunk of change. So again, if I'm saving myself some money, it makes more sense for me to do that whilst giving AMD another try and it'll be my first AMD card since the 270X (actually not so long ago). Doing this also helps competition in the market.

Funny that KG were seen as Nvidia shills not too long ago after that controversial video by one of the guys on there but yeah, I totally agree with you. I would sooner trust their numbers when it comes to power draw because their PSU reviews are great and technically sound.

HEXUS review just in of the 480 Strix.

According to them, the 480 Strix draws 'only' 48W more than the 1060 Strix. Which is hardly the efficiency disaster some are trying to make out.

oc/stock Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


how can rx480 with 14nm shrink and new energy efficient architecture draw more power than 380 and 280X ?

Relax broseph, that's the total power draw of the PC (without monitor) not just the GPU. helpinghand.gif

48W more power for the same or less performance is certainly an "efficiency disaster" for Polaris10 itself, especially when its 14nm and 1060 is 16nm

but of course it nothing for a good PSU

Not it's not. No one with two brain cells to rub together thought that AMD would resolve all power draw issue in one generation even with moving to smaller node.

Reviewers don't know what powerlimit does. And probably a lot of guys here that started overclocking with nvidia kepler or newer gpus.




The card will consume 50% more power if you have 50% power limit. Even at stock

I want a Polaris 10 card without power limit, to see how far I can push the thing.

Sapphire... Make the Vapor-X happen.
