Power Consumption and Thermals
To improve performance/watt, GTX 580/570 GPUs were re-engineered down to the transistor level. To increase the GPU`s power efficiency, a very large percentage of transistors on the chip were modified.
The fan isn’t too loud during intensive gaming and we can finally say that we’re pleased with the noise levels. FurMark temperatures were at 85 degrees Celsius, but the fan stays quiet throughout the test.
