Graphics card temperatures

So here we'll have a look at GPU temperatures. First up, IDLE (desktop) temperatures. Overall anything below 50 Degrees C is considered okay, anything below 40 Degrees C is very nice and below 30 Degrees C - CEWL. 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. 



So with the card fully stressed we kept monitoring temperatures and noted down the GPU temperature.

  • LOAD - The temperature under heavy game stress for the card stabilized at a maximum of roughly ~79 Degrees C. We note down the hottest GPU reading, not the average.

With today's graphics cards, please make sure your PC is well ventilated at all times, this will seriously help you on the overall GPU temperatures. Once the card reaches a certain threshold in temperature it will start throttling on the boost frequency as well as voltages and fan RPM.


The card stays close to its advertised boost frequency, and does not throttle very much. Our long duration gaming stress test still showed the card running at a 1536 MHz marker.
