Default Error is ERage3D 7950 review?

Hi there, I was reading the Rage3D review of the 7950 and came across this:

Quote:
The dual PCIe 6pin connectors plus mainboard slot offer a total of 225W, under PCIe specification and AMD has very sensibly set the maximum board TDP of the HD 7950 to be 200W. When the PowerTune limit is raised by 20%, to a 220W cap, there is still electrical headroom in the power provided to the card.
Maybe this is still right, but isn't 20% of 200 Watt, 40 Watt? That would make it a 240 Watt cap, not 220.

[Woops]Sorry for the weird errors in my thread title, don't get what went wrong there [/Woops]

I really thought it would be alot cheaper, guess i'll wait for the new Nvidia cards & compare the price of the 7950 to whatever nvidia bring out.

Made a post a feedback central, it's a question about the power envelope, please have a look at it...
