GeForce GTX 670 Ti has 300W board power design By Hilbert Hagedoorn, February 28, 2012 - 4:26 AM N/A
[size="2"]From GURU3D.com:[/size][quote]

The chaps over at VR-Zone are displaying a diagram based on the (what they claim to be) NVIDIA GeForce Kepler 104 (GK104) ASIC, which rpesumably is going to be the GeForce GTX 670 Ti. Apprantly that diagram is showing a 5 NVVDD phase power supply (VRM) design that draws power from 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors.

Up you accumulate that then logic assumes that the board power can peak towards 300W of power as 75W + 150W + 75W from the PCIe connector = 300W That's quite a bit. Phase 1 and 3 will be wired to the 6-pin connector; phase 2, 4, and 5 to the 8-pin connector. NVVDD phases 2, 4, and 5 feed power to the GPU, while phases 1 and 3 power the GDDR5 memory and other components on the board.

Nothing much can be taken from this though, as the boards design power says nothing yet about TDP. Have a peek at the screenshot, courtesy of vr-zone.

Might be designed with overclocking in mind, might be a nod to the situation with 590s where significant over volting burned them up. (due to 4 phase power that was fine at stock clocks but not with the big overvolts some reviewers used with pre-release drivers trying to get 580 speeds)

I'm of the opinion ANY time a user runs a good deal more power through a part he's voided his warranty and increased his risk of failure enormously. Personally I'd rather add more cards to get more power, but to each their own.

Hmm I don't know what to say. This is early speculation at best from those guys.

I could be another GTX 295 ordeal again where people were saying how it will suck 350 - 400 watts due to the dual 200b design but it ended up being only around 289 - 310 watts. Who knows, but I think it will be less power draw and if it isn't, It better be quite a bit stronger than the 7970 which uses around 250 - 260 watts.

Even though AMD say the max power draw of the HD7970 is 250w, anandtech (and others) show that it uses a similar amount of power as the GTX570 (which nvidia says is 219w).

errr, I am shocked you would be a moderator on a tech based forum and NOT reccomend people check the power requirements of potential hardware purchases.

Power Consumption matters - deal with it.

Not to me, or a lot of other people.

It used to, only so far as what PSU I would purchase. But the GPU would dictate the PSU for me, not the other way around.

Since I'm up at the upper range of PSU wattage, I no longer check power ratings, or even the connectivity. Gotta love modular PSUs. /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> [I don't pretend to be the typical user, I am just pointing out that no matter how many times you say the same opinion, or how loudly you do so, it doesn't make it relevant to everyone.]
