NVIDIA GTX 770 2GB Graphics Card Review

Measuring temperatures is all about being consistent therefore we keep a steady eye on monitoring the ambient room temperature to make sure that it stays the same. While this is constantly being monitored, we measure the idle temperature of the card using HWMonitor over a 15 minute period. Once this has been recorded, we set FurMark into motion for 15 minutes and record the results again.

As mentioned in the acoustic chart, the GK104 has a lower thermal output than the GK110 core, with a difference of 5c at full load, which in turn can lead to higher boost clocks through GPU Boost 2.0
