GIGABYTE GeForce GTS 250 1GB Graphics Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

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.

It was really interesting to see the temperature of the GIGABYTE GTS 250. I actually found myself checking it a number of times to make sure there wasn't a mistake.


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 levels on the GTS 250 from GIGABYTE are pretty impressive with it being one of the quieter cards we have here today.
