Gigabyte GTX960 G1 Gaming SOC Review

We normally test power demand direct from the VGA card input, with our Keithley Integra unit. Today however we decided to go with a more traditional approach – measuring system wide load, minus the monitor. The system we are using for this review today is detailed HERE.
system power draw
The Gigabyte GTX960 G1 Gaming system consumes 197 watts under load. When we manually overclocked the card, the draw increased to 218 watts. This card consumes more power than the Asus GTX960 Strix OC, an indication that it is indeed drawing more power from the two 6 pin power configuration. The Nvidia reference design incorporates a single 6 pin connector.
