Power Consumption, Temperatures & Acoustics

Power Consumption

The cards power consumption is pretty good. Of course, it uses a lot of power, but it gives a lot of performance too. It’s amazing to think how much power it uses compared to something like the Vega 64, but how much more performance this card gives!

Temperatures

That huge triple slot design is there for a reason, as temperatures are pretty chilly for this chipset. It’s a full 9 degree below that of the Aorus card, which is just jaw-dropping.

Acoustics

The Aorus does have it beat with acoustics though, with the card being a whole 1 dBa louder; not that many would notice, they’re both pretty quiet for high-end GPUs.

Overclocking

EVGA has done their work on this card and designed it to be well overclocked right out of the box. However, as with most GPUs, they’ve played it safe and left a little headroom. I managed to get around 3% more performance from the card, which translates as around 4 FPS at 1080p in Tomb Raider. It’s not much, but free performance is free performance. The temperatures are still great, and the acoustics didn’t budge at all.
