I don't quite understand you. Could you please rephrase your question? Thanks!

A drying agent might be powerful in that it can absorb more water per amount of drying agent, or in that it is the quickest way of absorbing a certain amount of water, or in that it leaves the minimum amount of water behind in the gas/solvent you're trying to dry.

The most powerful in these each of three categories need not be the same thing, so you need to define your question more tightly.
