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.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
