Radeon HD 2950GT dissipates 80W

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Cheap and cool


The slowest RV670, the RV670GT, will dissipate 80W and will be one of the few cards that will be under a hundred watts this year. The PCIe 1.0 specification can feed your card with 75W of power, while PCIe 2.0 can serve up to 150W per PCIe connector; however, for safety and compatibility reasons Radeon HD 2950GT will come with a single 3x2 power plug.

This card should perform well even without the connector on a high end PCIe 2.0 board, but then again we believe that ATI would prefer that it be connected to a power plug, even on PCIe 2.0 boards.

The Geforce 8800 GT also needs a power plug, as will Radeon HD 2950PRO and XT.
