That's an exageration, of course.

Still, 150-watts less is required to run 2 5870's in CF. That's a pretty significant amount of power.
Yes, that is true!

But please help me with the numbers, Madpistol.

You don't need a small nuclear reactor for HD5870CF. (In comparison to a GTX480.)

Because, HD5870CF requires __________ Idle and __________ Under Full Load.

The GTX480 requires __________ Idle and __________ Under Full Load.

Difference in number and %: __________ Idle and __________ Under Full Load.

((Maybe: Peak Watts (Total System Consumption) for the Idle and the Load.)

(include urls. i know u know. but just for sake of others posting i mention it.)

I know that I have one source that show a really good GTX480 charts including Idle, and Load = 1 hour. But I thing it lacks the HD5870CF. I'll try and check my other sources today.

tytyty!
