In addition, videos are still very efficent in what they do. Their efficeny is improving but performance is just growing faster. For example, the 8800GTX uses 2.5 times more power than a 7950GT but you get 3-4 times the performances. A GPU does a magnitude or two more work per watt than a CPU can.
Yeah, I guess we just all need to be using solar energy to run computers, because if i had a computer running two gfx cards, 2 hard drives, and a new processor, along with all the stuff needed to cool all of that, i would probably need a 1000watt power supply...and my window unit air conditioner doesn't even use that much power, lol...but that's all i am going to rant, lmao
