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.

£2000 for a card that will be (almost) matched by a card costing (4070) a third as much in 6-8mths, with ~3090 levels of performance



..even the resale value of these cards will collapse, if the intention is to move it on as soon as the new cards from Nvidia are announced.Quote

I have yet to see a collapse on any Nvidia card since the 1080ti days. They hold very well. Mostly because its just incremental fps increases. 2080ti saw almost no increase but RT introduced, 3080ti bumped that up, and GPU shortages kept the 20x series riding high on the resale market.

Even if GPU supply is bountiful, I think the trend will hold simply due to the costs of the current gen (40xx once its released)Quote
