Default Re: Does a GTX 280 comsume more power then a 8800GTX ULTRA.

I have been reading more about it and Evga shows that a 8800GTX Ultra needs about 34 amps and a overclocked GTX 280 needs around 40amps,so it does need qiute a bit more .It was more then I thought it was going to be ,I thought they would use about the same.But according to Evga a GTX 280 uses about 72 more watts then a single 8800GTX Ultra.
Does the 8800GTX Ultra and the GTX 280 use the same die size of 65n
