Power & Temps
I thought the SAPPHIRE Radeon RX Vega 64 NITRO+ would consume more power, but even with the HBM2 clocked at 1100MHz (up from 945MHz) and mining Ethereum, the entire system was drawing 390W.
390W of power consumption for the entire system is still a lot, considering NVIDIA's faster (and yet 18 month old) GeForce GTX 1080 has a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and consumes less than 260W in our test system.
As for temps, with Ethereum mining pushing the card to 100% the RX Vega 64 NITRO+ was only hitting a maximum of 70C. This is impressive considering the air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 reference card from AMD hits a maximum of 80C and is a hell of a lot louder in the process.
SAPPHIRE has done some truly great work with the cooling technology on the card to keep both the Vega 10 GPU and HBM2 cool, without making a huge fuss out of the noise from the fans. Kudos, SAPPHIRE.
