Power Consumption & Temperatures
The power consumption figures of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti were remarkably similar to those of the GTX 570, using just 4% less power when playing Crysis and 7% less at idle. With a total system consumption of 358 watts the GeForce GTX 560 Ti appears considerably more power hungry than the old GTX 460 as well as its direct competitor the Radeon HD 6870.
The upgraded Gigabyte cooler worked really well as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti's idle temperature was just 31 degrees, while the card never got hotter than 76 degrees under full load.
