NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Review – GIGABYTE G1 Gaming
The temperature levels we reach are not representative for the temperature levels you could get in a normal system, in an enclosure. If you have a poorly ventilated enclosure you could get much higher temps, while if you have a very well ventilated enclosure you could get better temp numbers. The purpose of this chapter is to compare one graphic card to another, not to get absolute numbers.
We used EVGA Precision to measure the temperature levels of the GPU and the fan speed, both in idle and in full load, in the same situation we used in the power consumption test. As you would expect, the GTX 980 is on par with GTX 780Ti and GTX 780 (same threshold), but GIGABYTE GTX 980 G1 Gaming really shines, with a mere 63 oC in full load…
