MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Power Consumption
I compiled the power consumption results by testing each card under idle condition and while it was peaking during gaming sessions. Each graphics card manufacturer sets a default TDP for the card which can vary from vendor to vendor depending on the extra clocks or board features they plug in on their custom cards. Default TDP for the GTX 1080 Ti is set over 250W and since we are testing a custom board, the figures can be lower or also exceed the default TDP.
The new 16nm process on the GeForce 10 series cards based on Pascal architecture deliver huge increases in performance per watt values meaning that the GTX 1080 Ti is able to deliver higher performance while sipping in drastically lower power than the 980 Ti OC.
You can see the results for yourself below which show that the GTX 1080 Ti has a total power input of 293W with OC profile while the GTX 980 Ti Lightning has a peak draw of 351W. We can see that the GTX 1080 Ti offers much more performance at a lower power input even when been factory overclocked or manual overclocked.
