Power Usage And Temperature Benchmarks

On The Bench: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 FTW

Despite its GeForce GTX 470-class performance, the EVGA GTX460 FTW is using a lot less power under load, although the Radeon HD 6870 manages to achieve excellent power efficiency in comparison to both.

The cooler might not be fancy, but it does a great job. It’s interesting to note that, at idle, we saw the EVGA clocks go as low as 50 MHz core and 67 MHz memory.

The EVGA card even manages to perform relatively quietly compared to the higher-end GF100-driven GTX 470.
