Idle temperatures are excellent even with the fans turning off in idle. During gaming, the card also runs very cool and is super quiet while doing so.
Clock ProfilesModern 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.
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.
|GPU Voltage |
|Desktop||203 MHz||203 MHz||0.675 V|
|Multi-Monitor||203 MHz||203 MHz||0.675 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||645 MHz||405 MHz||0.675 V|
|3D Load||1278 - 1797 MHz||1752 MHz||0.800 - 1.100 V|
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.
