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.

Checking out the temperature of the card it comes as no surprise that we're running a good chunk warmer than the other HD 7970s we've tested, this is of course due to the extra voltage running through the card.

 

Overall we continue to see load temps come in lower than the NVIDIA GTX 570 and GTX 580, even if it is only by a few degrees.
