Temperature & power consumption

Temperature and power consumption

The temperature measurements were obtained after running 40 loops of 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme's stress test and checking the peak sustained temperature. Similarly, the total system power consumption figures were read off a power meter during a run of Fire Strike Extreme.

NVIDIA's cooling solution proved more effective than AMD's, with considerably lower temperatures across the board. Idle power consumption numbers were good, although the Radeon RX 5700 XT drew more in Fire Strike Extreme than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super.
