Power Consumption

These results speak for themselves. In different idle and load scenarios the single GPU HD7970 uses less power yet provides more performance than two NVDIA GTX460s.

In addition, we verified the functionality of the new 'Zero Core' feature. The GPU fan did turn off after a significant period during which the monitor had gone to sleep and subsequently so did the graphics card.
