There is little left, the day after tomorrow, we will have the review of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition, but until then, we must settle for the leaks, being able to see the company’s graphics card today through some Photographs taken with a thermal camera that reveal the hottest spot on the GPU.
These captures are from a video that showed the heat generated during 8 minutes of operation. You can see how in idle / rest, the hottest point of the GPU marked 34.4ºC, to then show at that same point 65ºC, which is right in the center of the graphics card, which is where you can see a large part of the radiator made of black-painted aluminum. Even the PCB looks red too, so it’s a lot of radiated heat.
Unfortunately, this at the moment of truth is useless, since what the cooling system has to do is that, expel all the heat generated by the chip at the maximum possible speed, not knowing exactly what temperature the chip was at. graphic silicon. It is also not known what test the GPU was being carried out to draw a conclusion, so it remains to wait very little to know all the details.
