Nvidia GT300 said to come with 225 watt TDP
Initially the GT300 was said to need up to 300 watt, but it seems like Nvidia optimized the chip heavily.
Up to now the power consumption of Nvidia's DirectX 11 GPU, the GT300 with its 2.4 billion transistors and 40 nm structure, was supposed to reach 300 watt. But Nvidia is said to have optimized the chip to lower the consumption drastically. Appropriate GTX 380 graphics card will need 225 watt and two 6-pin power connectors only says a report at brightsideofnews.com. Actually this is still a lot of energy, but given the expected 512 Shader Units and clock speeds of 700 MHz (GPU), 1,600 MHz (Shader) and 1,100 MHz (GDDR5 VRAM) quite impressive.
