Temperatures

Since video card temperatures and the heat generated by next-generation cards have become an area of concern among enthusiasts and gamers, we want to take a closer look at how these cards generate heat under load.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 Temperature

In order to get proper temperature readings we used the Precision Overclocking Utility along with GPU-Z on the NVIDIA cards and the Catalyst Control Center along with GPU-Z on the ATI card.  Both utilities showed the same temperature, so it seemed pretty valid as you can see above.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 Temperature

Test Results: The NVIDIA GeFOrce 9800 GTX+ has great temperatures, but remember that it is a dual slot graphics card.  The Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 was a bit warm for our tastes and was found to be 85C at load.
