Nvidia Releases The Beast – Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Review

Power, Thermals and Noise

Temps

For our thermal testing, we ran Gaming loads rather than a power virus type of load as this represents a far more realistic loading scenario for those looking to see what you can expect when gaming on your new RTX card.

We observed idle temps right in line with what we would expect for this vapor chamber style cooler. It idled at 30 +/- 1 degree C in fluctuation. Loaded fully we saw the temp stabilize at 73C which is quite good and ensures some good headroom for boost clock.

 

New Noise

The fan noise for either of the RTX SUPER model cards simply was non-existent even under heavier loads. I will venture further to even say that even when overclocking and running looped tests for stability I did not see any abhorrent noise from either of the cards testing today.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
