When it comes to GPUs with the high performance there is no doubt that the RX 6750 should be in the talk, as it is a high-performing GPU that provides the user with fairly good performance.
When talking about performance you can compare the RX 6750 with GPUs like the RTX 3070, but we aren’t talking about performance.
In this article, we will be going through the power consumption of the RX 6750 XT. How much power it uses, what PSU would be best compatible, and how it pairs up to the TGP of other GPUs around the same performance level as it.
How Many Watts Does The RX 6750 XT Use?
The RX 6750 has a TGP or Total Graphics Power of 230 Watts, which is the typical wattage it produces. This is also the average power consumption it uses when gaming. However, when idle The RX 6800 only uses 8 Watts of Power.
The power consumption of your GPU will change depending on what games you are playing, and what applications you are using on your computer.
Another thing to note is the number of monitors you are using with your computer. The more monitors you use the more power your GPU will consume especially when idle.
This is greatly amplified with the RX 6750 XT for some reason.
With a single monitor, the RX 6750 XT only produces 8 watts of power, but as soon as you add a second monitor to the mix, it jumps up to 39 watts when idle.
Now compare this to Nvidias RTX 3070 which produces 9 Watts with a single monitor, and only moves up to 15 watts with a second monitor.
As you can see AMDs RX 6750 has an extreme jump in wattage for no reason really
This is pretty good considering that most Nvidia GPUs double their idle power consumption when you add a second monitor to your computer.
Typically, with an extra monitor, you should expect the idle power consumption to be close to double what it would be with a single monitor, but with this graphics card, it shoots way up.
When you are looking and comparing a GPUs power consumption, you want to look at the GPus TGP or Total Graphics Power, which shows the base power draw you will get when using your GPU for things such as gaming
When talking about power consumption, you might hear the phrase “TDP” used interchangeably with the phrase “TGP”. Essentially TGP and TDP are the same things, but TDP is the total power consumption of a component and TGP is the total power consumption of a GPU specifically.
You should also note that the TGP of a GPU isn’t the true maximum power draw of the specific graphics card, and the power consumption can be increased when computing graphically intensive tasks and while overclocking.
The Rx 6750 maximum recorded power consumption is 293W, which is a pretty solid increase from its base TGP.
However, this is not very common and will only happen when you do some pretty intense overclocking or are experiencing a very extreme load.
RX 6750 XT Power Consumption Compared To Other GPUs
The GPUs power consumption is compared using TGP. It is essential to know and compare your graphics cards to other similar models because it will help you get a grasp on the amount of power your system is going to use.
Here is a comparison of a few graphics cards that are around the performance range of the RX 6750 XT.
As you can see from this chart the RX 6750 XT has a pretty similar TGP to other GPUs inside of its performance range.
Only 10 more watts than the GTX 3070, and 20 watts less than the RX 6800 (which is a slightly better GPU).
If you want to compare more graphics cards on their power consumption and TGP I have provided a database where you can look at dozens of different GPUs and their power consumption, that way you don’t have to do the research yourself.
Check out the Database.
I have also provided the average power consumption when gaming, as well as the average power consumption when idle, that way you can get a better understanding.
What Power Supply Do I Need For My RX 6750?
With the RX 6750, AMD recommends that you get a PSU that is 650 Watts, and I actually agree with this. With a 650-watt power supply paired with the RX 6750, you will have enough wattage to overclock your GPU, CPU, and any other hardware, as well as have some room to upgrade in the future if you choose.
It is always important to have a PSU that is a little over the wattage of what your system actually uses, just in case you want to do anything listed above.
Although there are many power supply brands and different qualifications out there I would recommend you go for something that is at least 80 Plus certified that comes from a trusted brand such as EVGA, or Corsair.
This will provide you with power supply hardware that is very reliable and can save you on your energy bill as well.
The reason for this is that a power supply unit that is not certified can take a significant amount of electricity out of your wall that doesn’t do anything. Not only that, but power supplies from a brand that isn’t trusted can damage other parts of your computer, or have underlying issues that you will experience sooner or later.
