PowerColor Radeon R9 390 PCS+ Review

The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 23c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this.Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by playing Crysis Warhead for 30 minutes and measuring the peak temperature. We also have included Furmark results, recording maximum temperatures throughout a 30 minute stress test. All fan settings were left on automatic.

The triple fan cooler performs exceptionally well, holding gaming temperatures at 58c under extended load.

We install the graphics card into our system and measure temperatures on the back of the PCB with our Fluke Visual IR Thermometer/Infrared Thermal Camera. This is a real world running environment playing Tomb Raider for extended periods of time.

The backplate in most areas holds around 55-56c, however there is a small area shown above which rises to 60c after around 30 minutes of gaming. Great results for PowerColor.
