I just noticed that TechPowerUp has incorporated GPU power consumption results with VSYNC enabled:

This really shines a light on a new metric and it's something I've personally played with in my own benchmarking for about a year now. When you have a system with a limited PSU (mine is not upgradeable), it changes how you shop for graphics cards. Even if you have a good PSU but prefer a lower energy footprint, these results are interesting.
Last year when I was shopping for a GPU that would work well in my system (325W PSU), I settled on the 1650 Super as it was the fastest card available with a 100W TDP. These new results now show which more powerful GPUs will work well in my system with a 60 fps cap, including several RTX 20xx and RTX 30xx GPUs.
I'm just glad someone is now doing this, it's great information that as far as I know, no other GPU review site has ever utilized on a mass scale. Bravo to TechPowerUp!
edit: really impressed with the RTX 3070 taking the top spot with only 73W used during gaming at 60 fps (compared to 220W with VSYNC off). None of the AMD cards come close to this kind of efficiency and it even beats the crap out of my 1650 Super, which drops from 106W to 104W when turning VSYNC on.
The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.
