Power Consumption in Profiler

Hi, I’m trying to figure out exactly what the power consumption metric tells me in the profiler. I’m trying to find out how much power my application would consume if it was running continuously. It consists of about 8 kernels, so there’s a few pauses in between kernel launches. When I click the device in the visual profiler it says 40W average. However, if I run the application continuously with nvprof, it will slowly climb to an average of 70W. The visual profiler said it was running it 30 times, so I’m not sure which is correct. Also, how often are clocks turned off/slowed down in response to no activity on the SMs?
