Powercolor HD6950 PCS++ 2GB Review – dual action

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. The best way to get maximum load results is by using Furmark, and even though it is not indicative of a real world situation it shows the limits the card can theoretically demand. The ‘gaming’ results are measured when playing Crysis Warhead and is a more valuable result to take from this.


The card has some reasonably good power efficiency figures, especially when set in HD6950 hardware mode, drawing only 135 watts when gaming.
