General Benchmarks Description
Power Consumption To emulate real-world usage scenarios, we record mains power draw both when idle and while playing Far Cry 3
Temperature To emulate real-world usage scenarios, we record GPU core temperature both when idle and while playing Far Cry 3
Noise A PCE-318 meter is used to record noise levels when idle and while playing Far Cry 3

Testing notes

Nvidia cards tend to run faster than the GPU Boost frequencies quoted in parentheses. For example, the Palit card averaged a core speed of 1,255MHz across the six real-world games, up from the 1,202MHz quoted on the literature. Bear this little nugget of information in mind when analysing results.
