Nvidia GTX Titan-Z versus AMD Radeon R9 295X2

By


Noise levels

We measure the noise levels of video cards from a distance of 10 centimetres within a soundproof box, where we direct the sound level meter at the video card at an oblique angle. Given that the Radeon R9 295X2 utilizes water cooling and that the fan on the radiator also produces noise, we positioned the card in such a way in our soundproof box that both the card and the radiator were approximately 10 centimetres from the microphone.

The load measurement is the average sound level measured over a one minute period during an extended 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme run, after the card had been warmed up for some 10 minutes using the same benchmark.

Credit where credit is due: Nvidia claimed that the Titan-Z would be quiet, and the charts show that this is indeed the case.
