    Honestly at this point a random number generator could have picked better colors.

    But yeah, this is an old topic.

    Just reduce the set from which you chose.
    This sounds like a good choice:

    Not to author- your graphs are so confusing I couldn't make heads or tails out of them.

    You are using virtually the same colours for multiple graphs.

    Couldn't you use stipples and/or separate graphs - one for each card ?

    Some places that could use improvement here, Michael.

    1. Test idle power usage. Honestly it shouldn't change much, if at all, while you are running apps. It's at the desktop that you should really see changes.
    It depends on the defaults. If it's defaulted at low clocks, DPM should increase power consumption but come with increased performance. So, I think both benchmarks are needed to judge.

    2. The line graphs were pretty much unreadable. You had black, blue, and then 4 separate shades of red that all ran together.
    Completely agree.

    Ok.... I have to do it

    It looks to me like the 6870 isn't quite getting into the highest power state under DPM. Not only were the benchmark scores consistently a bit lower, it was by far the biggest recipient of the power efficiency gains (meaning it used far less power).
