What is my products total power draw?

HP Recommended
OMEN 870-213w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I plan to upgrade the gpu soon from the 1070 to the 1080 so i was wondering what the total wattage is for my pc so i can make sure to upgrade the power source as well.

Hi @MrJMannMC, Thank you for posting at HP Forum.


With regards to your query, I had a quick check about the power requirements for the GTX 1070 and 1080.


For the GTX 1080, the Graphics card Power is 180 W, and the Recommended System Power is 500 W.
For the GTX 1070, the Graphics card Power is 150 W, and the Recommended System Power is similar as the GTX 1080 (500 W).


So ideally speaking, the GTX 1080 requires an additional 30 W power when compared to the GTX 1070.


The desktop model that you have (OMEN by HP 870-213w) comes with a 500 W power supply, so it does meet the power requirement for the GTX 1080, and the card should work with the existing power supply.

Here is the full computer specs for your Omen desktop:


Hope this helps.
