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.

Looking at the temperature of the hottest card it's surprising to see that it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Idle heat does sit a little higher, but overall we can see that the setup runs a single degree cooler then the HD 6990.
