Idle temperatures are excellent even with the fans turning off in idle. Gaming temperatures are decent too. I rather have slightly higher temperatures and less noise, so Sapphire made the right choices.
Important: GPU temperature will vary depending on clock speed, voltage settings,
|GPU Temperature Comparison|

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 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.
