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.

Oddly the MERC 308 uses less power and has more cooling than the ASUS but doesn’t remotely stay as cool nor boost as hard. Maybe there is a ton of performance to be unlocked with more focussed overclocking efforts.
