Probably less than 50W at load. Around 30W at idle if you are not overclocking at all.

I found this on the 9800 Pro which runs faster on the same process, so it probably draws less than the 9800Pro.


Whatever it draws, it is small enough to use a Zalman ZM80C-HP cooler on it (which I do).

This post indicates 54w: ... 6372#86372

It looks like the VGA card power dissipation thread was using images hosted by another site, and they've been removed or are denying access to the images based on HTTP_REFERER. Oops.

I think about 25W at idle; about 55W peak.
