Geforce 9300 ge vs ati radeon 4550
Aug 22, 2010, 6:59 PM
Both are compatible with my desktop, but I was just wondering which consumes more power:
Nvidia GeForce 9300 GE
ATI Radeon HD 4550
I know the radeon card supports ATI PowerPlay, while the GeForce does NOT support Nvidia powermizer. Does this make a difference in terms of wattage?

Thanks wa1. The only thing I was concerned about was power consumption, not so much the better card.
For anyone interested, the radeon 4550 uses about 8 watts in idle (xbitlabs) and the geforce 9300 ge uses 12 watts (my own measurement).

No gaming at all? Only light work for your PC?
Take a look at this:
HD5570 is a low power consumption card, it still can be use for gaming too...
