GTX 550 Ti Wattage Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Graphics Last response: November 30, 2012 1:45 AM in Graphics & Displays Share knightlancer97 November 27, 2012 10:46:15 PM I own a GTX 550 Ti and I came across something rather interesting. These websites say that my GTX 550ti's max wattage is around 250-300W http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2011/03/15/nv... http://www.anandtech.com/show/4221/nvidias-gtx-550-ti-c... Then these websites say that it runs at 116W http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt... http://www.hwcompare.com/9745/geforce-gtx-260-vs-geforc... So naturally I'm curious which one is right. I mean there is more than a 100W difference...
