L4dd is still being judged by the masses


Default P.C.I.-E. cable power

I had read a test that had shown that a P.C.I.-E. cable was able to draw 180 watts, which might not have been the cable's limit, so I doubt that your card is limited due to it having a single P.C.I.-E. cable, and the P.C.I.-E. slot is rated for up to 75 watts.

Rage 3D's following linked article states that the 7850's PowerTune is limited to 155 watts, so I blame that:
