Temperatures in idle mode and on load were great, cooler than those of most other HD 7850 cards we have tested.
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, 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 we measured. We performed the measurement on the pins of a coil or a capacitor near the GPU voltage regulator.
|GPU Voltage |
|Desktop||300 MHz||150 MHz||0.84 V|
|Multi-Monitor||300 MHz||1200 MHz||0.92 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||860 MHz||1200 MHz||1.23 V|
