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.
Even though this notebook has a low-level of power consumption and a lower performance level, the processor does run a little warm at idle as a result. What we did find, however, is that even with the system running in a passive mode, the idle temperatures barely reached 50 Celsius and when pushing the system during the benchmarking tests, the tiny cooler that is in the chassis was able to keep temperatures comfortably the 60 Celsius mark.
