PNY GTX 960 XLR8 Review

   -   

PNY GTX 960 XLR8 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 1920 x 1080 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 1920 x 1080 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

PNY's GTX 960 XLR8 delivers great thermal performance when put into the comparison charts. However, the MSI GTX 960 Gaming does deliver better thermal characteristics. That being said, PNY's cooling solution is smaller and is just as quiet, so when you put it in perspective, the cooling solution does a really good job of cooling the Maxwell core.
