We start off by testing how high our GPU clocks go as well as how much power our card uses. We run Final Fantasy XV 4K benchmark for this test so that users will have an idea what kind of usage behavior they can see from these cards.
Given that most cards will boost all the way to their highest potential, the numbers we see here should be a good indicator of what to expect from these cards in general. Results are captured via PCAT that captures card-only power draw with no approximation.
Idle temperature and power draw is captured on a 1080p monitor at idle. Gaming workload readings is a combination of the cards running temperature and power draw during benchmarks.
