AMD R9 290 Review (1600P, 4K and CF)

To test power consumption today we are using a Keithley Integra unit and we measure power consumption from the VGA card inputs, not the system wide drain. We measure results while gaming in Crysis Warhead and the synthetic stress test Furmark and record both results.
power consumption
Power consumption is down a little from the R9 290X, averaging between 200 watts and 220 watts when gaming.
