Following that round of eight tests, we repeated the same tests again, but this time set the Phoronix Test Suite to monitor the GPU core temperature while the tests were running.

As can be seen from the line graph, the GPU temperature remained quite low during the early part of our testing when just running the 1080p H.264 video tests, but began to rise during our OpenGL gaming benchmarks. The GPU core temperature then began to drop when moving to the 2D benchmarks. During this entire process, the lowest temperature recorded by the Phoronix Test Suite was 35°C while the highest was 55°C. The average temperature during all of this was 45.66°C. These temperatures are not bad at all especially for its small cooler.

Next up with the GeForce GT 220 we looked at how it scaled at different resolutions using the Warsow test profile.

When running at 800 x 600, the GeForce GT 220 at stock speeds started out at 133 FPS. By the time, however that Warsow was running at 2560 x 1600 it was running at only 44 FPS. A game running at 44 FPS is still playable, but the ideal resolution for the GT216 GPU with a game of this degree would be 1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200.
