NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Thermal Output
We recorded the peak exhaust temperatures of those cards, to see how much heat they throw out. Take a look…
Note that these are not the recorded temperatures, but how much hotter the exhaust air is above ambient temperature.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Noise Level
In case you are wondering how loud the cooler is, we recorded it running Time Spy Extreme benchmark at the 4K resolution.
But the two fans sure do keep it running cool, even during heavy loads!
Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark
We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which offers a great approximation of gaming performance in general.
The Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme benchmarks support DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.
Time Spy – 2560 x 1440
Let’s see how much of an effect they have on the overall gaming score…
Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160
And here were their overall gaming scores at 4K…
Its overall performance gap tightened a little at 4K.
