The AMD performance overlay (default hotkeys: CTRL-SHIFT-O) provided with the latest Adrenaline driver reports an item called GPU PWR. Is this figure TOTAL power consumption, or just the power provided directly by the PSU? In other words, does it include the power provided by PCIe slot, or just the power from the 6/8-pin connector(s)?

GPU Power it's supposed to report the GPU total power draw.
Since it is a software calculation it could be inaccurate at times.
So it's useful to have a rough idea of the GPU power consumption.
