ATI Radeon Eyefinity6 2GB Video Card at 5760 x 1200 - Temperature and Sound Tests

The Eyefinity6 that we've known about for months is finally here. Let's check it out at 5760 x 1200.

Temperature Tests

 

 

With the TES 1326 Infrared Thermometer literally in hand we found ourselves getting real-world temperatures from the products we test at load (3D clock speeds).

 

There are two places we pull temperature from - the back of the card directly behind the core and if the card is dual slot and has an exhaust point we also pull a temperate from there, as seen in the picture.

Compared to the standard HD 5870 the card does run a little warmer.

 


Sound Tests

 

 

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

 

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

Noise is also slightly up but it's nothing that's too worrying.
