NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 Series Review Ft. RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 Founders Edition Graphics Cards – Turing Ray Traces The Gaming Industry
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & GeForce RTX 208019th September, 2018
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & GeForce RTX 2080 Temperatures
No graphics card review is complete without evaluating its temperatures and thermal load. Both Founders Edition cards feature a similar design with a dual axial fan cooler, large aluminum fin stack with vapor chamber and a contact base.
When compared to the previous Founders Edition cards featured on the GeForce 10 series, we can see a good increase in cooling performance provided by the dual axial fan and the larger heatsink design. Since the blower fan is gone now, the acoustic levels have also been lowered tremendously, allowing for cooler and quiet operation which one should expect from a high-cost reference card.
The lower temperatures also mean that there's more headroom for overclocking available and Boost 4.0 would work extremely well on these cards, pushing it beyond the rated boost frequency with the new algorithms.
