So here we'll have a look at GPU temperatures. First up, IDLE (desktop) temperatures.
IDLE temperatures are always a tiny bit tricky to read out as Windows Aero could have an effect on this. Overall anything below 50 Degrees C is considered okay, anything below 40 Degrees C is very nice. We threw in some cards at random that we have recently tested in the above chart.
But what happens when we are gaming? We fire off an intense game-like application at the graphics card and measure the highest temperature of the GPU.
Well you define the temperature really, so if you set it at 90 Degrees C, the voltage and core clock will adapt to that based on your tweak. Above you can see how nicely the GPU kicks it up a notch and then down to stay within the temperature target.
Due to all targets the core clock frequency and voltages will be dynamically clocking up and down.
So with the card fully stressed we kept monitoring temperatures and noted down the GPU temperature. With today's graphics cards, please make sure your PC is well ventilated at all times, this will help you on the overall GPU temperatures and overclocking.
Now the temperature this is what you define it to be, that is pretty cool when you think about it.
