INNO3D RTX 4080 Super X3 Graphics Card Review

Power & Temperatures

Now moving on from framerates and costing, as always, we have multiple cards with us and the big thing separating them is the power, temperatures and fan speeds. It’s here where we threw both the Founders Edition and X3 cards both onto F1 23 for a one-hour loop to see exactly how they perform for a prolonged gaming session.

The INNO card ran a little warmer, likely due to its slimmer design where the GPU temperature rose to just short of 70 degrees, with a hotspot of 80 degrees and with a memory junction temperature that was also a little higher at 70 degrees. The card didn’t boost as far as the FE, at only around 2665MHz, and with lower GPU usage, almost like the card wasn’t being pushed to its fullest in this game, though the fans were certainly more noticeable at 1800 RPM, but still in the realm of being fairly quiet overall. Due to the three large fans, the total board power did increase and saw the X3 sitting around 300 Watts during our run.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
