Looking at the peak power consumption alone is a little one dimensional. Both cards require 2x 6 pin connectors and if you have a PSU that has two (or more) connectors the likelihood is that you're not taking on additional cost on the platform to support either. There is also a large number of AiB options out there to keep them cooler and quieter.

I think what users should also consider is their usage patterns of their PC. Anyone that plays games for a few hours but then leaves their PC on for a significant period of time then ZeroCore power is potentially buying more back in total PC on-time.
