NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 (Kepler) 2GB Reference Card Video Card Review - Temperature Test

As far as NVIDIA knew we couldn't get a GTX 680. We told them differently, so let's show you the latest GTX 680 from them, before the NDA goes off.

Temperature Test

 

 

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.

When it comes to the temperature side of things we can see that the idle temp is strong, but when it comes to load the card is quite warm running. It comes in just a little lower than the GTX 580.

 

Considering the performance gains we've got over the GTX 580, the number looks impressive. We wouldn't want it to get much warmer, though, and it will be interesting to see what partners do with coolers in the coming weeks and months.
