After all, we have AMD Navi graphics cards – Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT have a debut on the market. Nvidia quickly reacted to the race presentation and referred to the question of energy consumption.
The Greens of one of their presentations have clarified the concepts related to the power consumption of graphics cards, which of course was intended to further highlight the differences between the generations.
The TDP (Thermal Design Power) parameter sets the power consumption of the graphics system itself, while TGP (Total Graphics Power) refers to the power consumption of the entire graphics card. Whether we compare the graphics systems or entire maps, the new AMD projects have higher electricity demand than Nvidia's competitors (although the manufacturer has made significant progress with previous generations of Polaris and Vega).
AMD erroneously determines the power consumption of its graphics cards? No. The manufacturer uses TBP (Total Board Power) for some time, which is identical to TGP. However, the issue may arise from where Nvidia has information about TDP Navi systems, as the cards are still not officially launched on the market …
