NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition Testing:

Temperature Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8x AA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a twenty-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

 

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0 1920x1080 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

Power Consumption:

Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine Heaven Benchmark version 4.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A fifteen-minute load test will be used to heat up the GPU, with the highest power usage recorded as the final result. The idle results will be measured after fifteen minutes of inactivity on the system with the lowest recorded power usage as the final result.

Settings

  • Unigine 4.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1080 resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

 

 

 
 

 

Even using NVIDIA's well designed heat sink, the GTX 1080 Ti is a warm runner at stock speeds. With the amount of hardware under the lid, this is really no surprise. That being said, it matches the results from the Maxwell-based Titan X and GTX 980 Ti at 83 °C under load at stock speeds. If that is too warm, you can ramp up the cooling fan on the card with any of the overclocking utilities on the web. EVGA's Precision and MSI's Afterburner are two that are commonly used.

That same handicap of a lot of hardware under the hood hits the power consumption metrics. Comparing the results with the previous generation top end card shows that NVIDIA has pulled out some efficiency gains, while adding a significant amount of hardware under the hood.
