Value & Conclusion »


Idle temperatures are excellent even with the fans turning off in idle. During gaming, the card also runs much cooler than the reference design, which avoids clock throttling above 82°C.

Important: GPU temperature will vary depending on clock speed, voltage settings,
cooler design, and production variances. This table just serves to provide a list of
typical temperatures for similar cards as determined during TPU review.

Clock Profiles

Modern graphics cards have several clock profiles that are selected to balance power draw and performance requirements.

The following table lists the clock settings for important performance scenarios and the GPU voltage that is used in those states.

GPU Voltage
Desktop240 MHz103 MHz0.650 V
Multi-Monitor240 MHz103 MHz0.650 V
Blu-ray Playback633 MHz101 MHz0.650 V
3D Load1506 - 1949 MHz1376 MHz0.825 - 1.060 V
The card uses NVIDIA's dynamic overclocking mechanism, GPU Boost 3.0. It will dynamically adjust clock and voltage based on render load, temperature, and other factors.

For the graph below, we recorded all GPU clock and GPU voltage combinations of our 1920x1080 resolution benchmarking suite. The plotted points are transparent, which allows them to add up to indicate more often used values. A light color means the clock/voltage combination is rarely used and a dark color means it's active more often.
