NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB GDDR6 Graphics Card Review FT. MSI Armor X & ASUS ROG STRIX

MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor OC & ASUS ROG GeForce RTX 2070 STRIX OC Power Consumption
I compiled the power consumption results by testing each card under idle and full stress when the card was running games. 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. The default TDP for the RTX 2070 is 185W (Founders Edition) while the cards I tested feature custom designs and higher power input than the standard FE variant.
Also, it's worth noting that the 12nm FFN process from TSMC is a refinement of their 16nm FF node. NVIDIA is cramping even larger amount of transistors and more cores than their previous cards, making it one of the densest chip built to date. It's likely to consume a lot of power and the results are reflective of that.
