We took our measurements with Asus' ROG Poseidon GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Platinum Edition under air cooling. When you switch over to water cooling, power consumption at full load drops by approximately 3W to 5W due to a lack of fans.

With a maximum of 3.3A during our stress test and 2.7A in a typical gaming workload, the ROG Poseidon lands well below the PCI-SIG's 5.5A ceiling.
The graphs in the album above help illustrate our measurement results.
