MSI Radeon RX 5500 XT Gaming X Graphics Card Review

Power Consumption

To test power consumption we will be using a Kill-A-Watt meter. This will measure the entire system power draw at any given moment. We first run an idle test on the Windows 10 desktop at 1 hour of inactivity.

Then we run the AIDA64 system stability test with only the GPU selected, which puts 100% load on the GPU.

Temperatures

For our temperature testing we run two different tests. The first is idle with our system sitting on the Windows Desktop.

The second is running the AIDA64 system stability test with only the GPU selected.
