Graphics Card Temperatures

Graphics card temperatures

So here we'll have a look at GPU temperatures. First up, IDLE (desktop) temperatures, as reported through software, on the thermal sensors of the GPU. IDLE temperatures first, overall anything below 50 Degrees C is considered okay, anything below 40 Degrees C is nice. We throw in some cards at random that we have recently tested in the below chart. But what happens when we are gaming? We fire off an intense game-like application at the graphics cards and measure the highest temperature of the GPU.   



So with the card fully stressed we kept monitoring temperatures and noted down the GPU temperature as reported by the thermal sensor.

  • The card's temperature under heavy game stress stabilized at roughly 65 Degrees C. We note down the hottest GPU reading, not the average.
  • In idle the fans do not spin, making this a passive state of operation. That will increase the idle temperature if you do not ventilate. 
  • The card exhibits coil whine at a moderate level
These tests have been performed with a 20~21 Degrees C room temperature.

Long Duration Stress Temperature and GPU Throttling clock

Have a look below at the GPU clocks after a warmup and long durations stress.
  • The card is at a 1905 MHz boost marker.
The protective limiters (aside from the power limiter) kick in albeit slightly as you can see the card throttling and then steadying a tiny bit. This test is looped continuously in what is our pre-benchmark warm-up sequence.
