Also does MacLucasFFTW support a 3072K FFT length?

never mind. Oliver answered my question. Thanks.

Expect a GTX 295 to add about 450 Watts to your system. You need a minimum 700W power supply.

Our S1070, which is a separate 1U box containing 4 Tesla C1060 cards, uses about 900 W under load according to the UPS it's on.

I'm pretty certain that to get the seal of approval from PCI-SIG, no card is allowed to be sold that will draw more than 300 W at stock settings. That's not to say a card can't be overclocked to draw more than that, but it'll almost certainly void any warranty.

Additionally, a PCIe card is allowed to draw 75 W from the slot, 75 W from a 6 pin PCIe power connector, and 150 W from an 8 pin PCIe power connector. Essentially what this means is that a 6 pin and an 8 pin connector is all you need, any more is out of spec anyway. That is why almost all high power cards have a 6 pin and 8 pin connector, just like the GTX 295.

However, there are enthusiast cards with two 8 pin PCIe power connectors, they are rare, but available, and are only sold because they expect people to madly overclock them.

Perhaps the most extreme of all is this card with two 8 pin and one 6 pin PCIe power connectors, allowing it to draw up to 450 W:
http://nexus404.com/Blog/2010/03/02/...sapphire-card/

Anyway, my point is, you shot too high, the GTX-295 draws about 290 W under full load. With odins spec, I'd say the minimum PSU size should be around 550 W to be able to cope when the whole system is under full load. However, the sweet spot for PSU efficiency seems to be about 50% loading, so I'd recommend an 800 - 1000 W PSU. But if odins current PSU is at least 550 W, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

You're right. It is spec'd at just below 300W. Interestingly, the S1070 is spec'd at 700W, but our UPS claims higher under load. Perhaps the UPS lies.

Perhaps it does not take into account the losses in the PSU?

The "start up" load on power supplies is usually the determining factor. The normal running load even under maximum processing load is less so your meter or UPS measure isn't too useful to determine the size of power supply needed.

Hi all, thanks for the replies. I asked because I saw this article on TomsHardware:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...0,2585-15.html

They measured the power at the plug, I think using a Kill-a-Watt device which I have. So this power draw includes the MB, CPU and RAM.

487W for GTX 295 under full load!

Frmky power reading is probably correct. I'm thinking about what this is going to do to my electric bill if I run this 24/7!

Thanks for the info.

Something like running slightly less than 5 100watt light bulbs 24/7 We don't know what rate you pay for power so we can't give you an exact answer.

For example if your rate is $0.10 per KWH then you'd pay 24*0.487*0.10 dollars per day. It works out to about $1.17 per day. Substitute your rate from your power bill for the $0.10.

Hi,
Version "N" at .0106 sec/iter for the 2048K FFT , .0218 sec/iter for the 4096K FFT and .0439 sec/iter for the 8192K FFT on GTX260.
