    Does the idle figure (19W) given in the g3d review for the 6870 refer to the sleep state (with everything sleeping incl monitor) or does it mean windows is only idle with nothing running?

    What is the power consumption of the video card while browsing or playing a youtube video?

    And how did you get the "average idle wattage"?

    average idle wattage = average wattage used while system is idle (no sleep state)

    Ok.

    I should have been clearer about asking how did the reviewer get "Add average IDLE wattage ~ 19W"
