AMD's RX 7900 series graphics cards not only face the controversy of inferior performance to the RTX 4090/4080 series, but have also raised new concerns in recent days because of the excessive Hotspot hotspot temperatures, even burning to 110 degrees.
Hotspot temperature was not much noticed before, it is not GPU core temperature, but Junction temperature”(Junction temperature).Even when the GPU core temperature is just over 50 degrees, the hotspot temperature may still be as high as 110 degrees.
This problem of high temperature is also relatively random, not all graphics cards have this problem, theThe HardwareXX website has previously summarized a table of hotspot temperatures, mainly found on the RX 7900 XTX male cardThe Asus, XFX, Sapphire graphics cards are normal.
For hot spot temperatures up to 110 deg.AMD's previous attitude was that it didn't think there was anything wrong, that it was within the scope of the design.The attitude is similar to the previous sharp dragon 7000 processor under high load reached 95 degrees, anyway, just do not feel any problem.
But as things festered, AMD's attitude had to change, and in its latest statement, AMD said they had taken note thatA small number of users are experiencing unexpected temperature issues on their RX 7900 XTX public graphics cards, and these users should contact AMD aftermarket support.
According to AMD, the hot spot temperature of 110 degrees is still the normal junction temperature, but the uneven contact pressure of the heat sink may cause the public RX 7900 XTX graphics card junction heat problem, some users said re-application of silicone grease or change the thermal pad can solve the problem.
