Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 11Gbps Graphics Card Review

Acoustic, Thermal and Power Testing


Acoustic Performance

Thanks to the card featuring a zero RPM mode, it’s completely silent for day to day use. However, even while gaming and running benchmarks, the fans are surprisingly quiet. It peaked at 42 dBa, which is thanks in no small part to those larger low RPM fans.

Thermal Performance

The massive cooler on this card isn’t just for show. When it comes to keeping those temperatures in check, it’s an absolute beast. The GPU core hit just 60c at load, and that makes it one of the coolest cards we’ve ever tested.

Power Usage

Nvidia has long held a lead for efficiency, and the same is true here. Even with high factory overclocks, this card uses just 316w of power. That’s still a lot of power, but keep in mind that it’s turning it into FPS pretty darn well at the same time.
