VisionTek Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card Review - Sound Test

VisionTek Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card Review

Having just finished looking at the Radeon R7 260X 2GB from VisionTek, we today look at something a little higher-end. Let's see how it performs now.

Sound Test

 

 

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).

Looking above you can see we're just shy of 60dB under load, which sees the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB sit in the bottom half of the pack. This is a good number that goes with a decent temperature number.
