Efficiency And Performance Value
Gigabyte had the best performance, while HIS has the lowest heat and power consumption. How will this play out in a comparison of performance to power?
MSI emerges as the true efficiency leader by taking second place in both performance and power savings.
On the other hand, it could take a while for MSI’s buyers to save enough on their power bill (compared to Gigabyte) to justify the Power Edition OC’s added cost.
By matching Gigabyte at $240, Sapphire's stock-frequency card takes second place in bang-for-the-buck.
