My guess would be around 360W or less in "normal" use - that much is obvious from the 7970 reviews.

Though I'm pretty sure some crazy overclockers running specific software could probably hit the 525W if they try hard enough.

Would an AX 1200 be able to handle two of these bad boys? I have enough pci-e connectors just wondering power restraints wise.

My specs:
3930k
32Gb Corsair Dominator GT 2133
240 Gb x 2 Intel 520's Raid 0
Corsair AX1200
Caviar Black 1tb

Would I be good on power?
I say, first of all buy 6-8 power supplies ranging from 1200 to 1500W
then, decide witch one of them handle the best. After that sorting the best overclocker out of about 20-25 HD7970x2's will be an easy job :)

It depends on whether the 525W is Furmark or peak gaming. If the former is true, then you'll be ok as long as you're not doing GPU-compute, furmark, etc. If the latter is true, I'd avoid this in favour of 7970 trifire (or 1*X2+1*7970) or some 680s/690s. What resolution do you game at?

Facepalm at all you folks who think that the fact the card has claimed "rated TDP of 525W", meaning only it has three 8pin PCIe power connectors on board (3×150W+75W=525W) would mean the card consumes that said 525W.

edit: wotevajjjj was quicker.
Don't worry, it will consume 650W on full stress. :eek:

Well now I understand why your location says "Trollithia" :rolleyes:

2560 X 1440
I am not really too happy with the 670/680/690's. Left me wanting more. Hopefully the gk110 will provide that. How do you think the driver support will be with these in crossfire?

Now here's the kicker - every one of my trolling posts has at least 20% honesty and truth in it :)
Nobody is a fortune teller to tell you what the actual power consumption be, heh?

3xDP for a triple slot card? You must like buying adapters. 3xDVI would of been a better choice for this card.

I hope they put the weight of the card with big letters and flashy colours on the box. I can see a new business opportunity in the enthusiast department- GPU support holders in any shape and form :) for any case and size :D

Look at the bright side, with zerocore when you're not gaming you won't be drawing anything whatsoever really from the second GPU... :roll:

hmm, my Intel CPU says it has 95 W TDP, but pulls 50W only.

WTF is the big deal with TDP, exactly?


TDP = Thermal Design Power? Not Total Drawn Power? :wtf:

So teh design si made for up to 525 W, which means it can OC? Hence the big red button?

:roll:


You guys kill me, man, really.
