The GeForce GTX 1080 Merely Sips Power
Gone are the days of power hungry video cards, where you were looking at it using 250-300W without a problem. The new GeForce GTX 1080 only requires 180W of power, with our entire system with a Core i7-5960X processor, using 230W. A remarkable feat.
Comparing this to the GTX 980 which used 15W more at 245W, the GTX 980 Ti with 305W, and the Titan X with 315W.
Temperature & Noise
We ran into absolutely no overheating GeForce GTX 1080, with a good amount of heat, but not over the top, compared to something like the Titan X, which gets seriously warm. The thinner backplate on the back of the GTX 1080 makes it much easier to remove out of the system, and is nice and smooth to the touch when you're installing, or removing the card.
We will be following up this review with a more detailed look at the temperature and noise in our upcoming article on overclocking the GeForce GTX 1080.
