Power, Thermals and Noise
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.
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.
