Sapphire Radeon HD 5670 1GB GDDR5 Video Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

ATI continue to release new models in the HD 5000 Series. This time it's a model that sits below the HD 5750. We find out how the HD 5670 goes today.

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.

Looking at the heat of the card, it runs slightly warmer than the HD 5750, but sits in line with the HD 5670. This is nothing to worry about either way.

 


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).

The decision to go Arctic Cooling here seems to be a good one with noise levels coming in quite nice, especially when idle.
