Overclocking & Power Consumption
For overclocking tests, MSI's Afterburner tuning application was used. The screen capture above is the card at idle.
With MSI Afterburner, I gained 107 MHz on the Core, 150 MHz on the Memory, and 260 MHz on the Shaders. These are impressive overclock numbers when you consider that the card has no external power connector.
For testing power consumption, we took our test system and plugged it into a Seasonic Power Angel. For idle numbers, we allowed the system to idle on the desktop for 15 minutes and took the reading. For load numbers, we measured the peak wattage used by the system while running 3DMark Vantage.
At idle the ECS GeForce GT 240 uses very little power thanks to aggressive clock throttling. Under load there is a substantial difference between it and the XFX Radeon HD 4850, but nothing unexpected considering the performance difference.
