NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI Review with NVLink
For testing power consumption, we took our test system and plugged it into a Kill-A-Watt power meter. For idle numbers, we allowed the system to idle on the desktop for 15 minutes and took the reading. For load numbers we ran Rainbow Six Siege at 1440P and recorded the peak power number while the in-game benchmark was running. This is done to ensure the results are repeatable.
Power Consumption Results: Our entire system was pulling just 370 Watts while gaming with one GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and that increased to 641 Watts with a second card in the system.Our Corsair RM1000X power supply on our test system was easily able to power this setup and we didn’t have any power or temperature concerns.
