Temperatures during gaming are kind of high. We measured these temperatures with an actual game, not a stress test. The card will not go beyond 80°C when a stress test (not even Furmark) is used, because it throttles as the voltage regulator circuitry gets too hot.
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 we measured. We performed the measurements on the pins of a coil or a capacitor near the GPU voltage regulator.
|GPU Voltage |
|Desktop||300 MHz||150 MHz||0.85 V|
|Multi-Monitor||500 MHz||1500 MHz||0.95 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||501 MHz||1500 MHz||0.95 V|
|3D Load||1050 MHz||1500 MHz||1.08 V|
