ATI Radeon HD 4870 Review: Vroom Vroom Crossfire

Power Consumption

For this test we hooked used a similar method to our power supply testing and then measured the consumption of the whole system every second. Maximum consumption placed strenuous strain on the PCI-E slots only thanks to a custom script, and allowed us to measure the differentials.

AMD ATI Radeon HD 4870 Review: Power Consumption

Power consumption sticks almost near to the specs on the box, while the load consumption slightly goes a bit over, but still fairly less in comparison to SLI power consumptions and given the higher clock and more utilization of stream processors, the ATI Radeon HD 4870 is commendable when it comes to this.

I'm all about one thing: truth. I don't care if you're a publisher - I don't care if you LIMIT me to access/reviewing your game (Sony), and I don't give a damn about anything you do to stop me from being honest. I can purchase any and all games and review them without bias unlike other "critics" / party-attenders.
