Graphics card temperatures

So here we'll have a look at GPU temperatures. First up, IDLE (desktop) temperatures as reported through the 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 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. 




So with the card fully stressed we kept monitoring temperatures and noted down the GPU temperature as reported by the thermal sensor. These tests have been performed with a 20~21 Degrees C room temperature, this is a peak temperature based on a GPU stress loop.

Long Duration Stress Temperature and GPU Throttling clock

The 5700 graphics card runs fairly steady but is throttling actively at a shy ~1680 MHz clock frequency gaming clock marker, this is our warm-up sequence and long duration frequency clock test, so yes that is quite a bit away from that advertised 1750 MHz 'turbo' frequency.
