RX 6800 Actual Power Consumption

I have noticed my 6800 commonly plays games around 150-190 watts depending on the title (99% usage). Running furmark as a worst case load gets to about 203watts max. Has anyone else noticed these cards running well below the rated 250watts? For reference, i have a EVGA G3 650w Gold+ PSU. My UPS shows around 350w total system power at the wall when gaming.

System Specs:

R5 3600 (4.2ghz)

RX 6800 (default profile)

LG 34GN850 (3440x1440 Freesync 2, using LG supplied DP cable)

2x16GB CL16 3600 (XMP enabled)

ASUS TUF Gaming X570 Plus

650W EVGA G3 PSU Gold+

Crucial P1 NVME M.2 (1TB)

Well maybe that not in turbo mode or l think there callig it rage.  and are you running quiet fan option.  Becuase I think it a dual BIOS 1 for quiet slower gpu and other all out power mode.


Nope, 6800 (non XT) does not have rage mode. I am on the default profile.
