Temperatures and Power Draw

Modern graphics cards no longer rely upon the user to overclock them, as the drivers now make the most of any spare power or thermal headroom available to boost the clocks to give the smoothest performance. Thus the temperature graph is a little less important than it used to be unless the manufacturer has created a godly cooler, whilst Power Draw is fun on your energy bill, but most of us just care about performance rather than a handful of Watts here and there. With slight variance in ambient temperatures we're also including the delta temperature too, so you know exactly how well the card performs relative to the air temperature.

It's funny seeing all those Nvidia cards at the top of the power draw charts with AMD at the bottom. Obviously their cards are behind in performance, but it's still interesting.Quote

ID take lower power draw these days. With the cost of electricity through the roof, it stings when I see my PSU showing 600W draw sometimes.Quote

Last chance cash grab IMO.

Mining is already starting to creak. Tons of AMD cards in stock on OCUK, not selling due to stupid prices. People are selling off 3x 3060ti in a FS forum I go to, and all of a sudden cards like the 2060 super and so on are appearing.

The first rats are deserting ship IMO. I give it 3 months and that bubble 'gon burst HARD. All of a sudden the market will be swamped with ex mining cards and Nvidia and AMD won't be able to sell a new one for love nor money.Quote
