Temperature Tests

 

 

The temperature of the core is pulled from MSI Afterburner with the max reading used after a completed run off 3DMark Vantage and the Performance preset.

It comes as no surprise that the core temps rise up a little; combining the extra voltage on the cores with the overclock and you're just going to generate more heat. Still, we're not too bad and we've seen single GPU cards perform hotter in previous generations, so it's not something we're all that worried about.
