Power consumption?

Hello everyone!
Does anyone know the power consumption of Nvidia Geforce 6800GS & Nvidia Geforce 6600GT compared to Ati Radeon 9700?
It's really hard to find out imo, I've both googled and searched here on TH with no result...

    Unfortunately the R9700 is too old to go head to head under the same configuration. The GF6600GT is just over 50Wpeak and the plain R9700 is about 40WPeak or less, but those are rough estimates from what I remember of individual reviews.
  2. I'd expect the 6800GS to be around 50 watts at peak, with the 9700 at 40 watts....
  3. Thanks!
    I'm about to buy a new graphics card but have heard that the 6800 is using very much power, so I wanned to see how much more it draws compared to my old one (9700)...
