Is it true that worse gpu's are quieter? does that mean that a 1070 ti is quieter than a 2080? i got this information from a friend and i'd like to know if this is true or not

You need 3 assumptions for this claim to be true

 

1. The same architecture and process node

 

2. The same core frequency

 

3. The same PCB layout and materials

 

1070ti and 2080 are different in all 3 assumptions, so "worse GPUs are more quiet' claim is wrong.  My old GTX 285 is a lot slower than a passive 1050 ti and I'm certain it will out shout it.

It is only true if they were to use the exact same cooler, then the lower tdp variant of the gpu will output less heat, meaning slower fans, meaning lower noise.

 

But the biggest difference of noise comes from the cooler itself, so just buy a gpu with the best cooler.

If you were to compare a gtx 1060 armor vs a gtx 1080 gaming X, then the gaming x is quieter, while being better.

 

I only see your reply if you @ me.

If we're talking stock graphics card which one is quieter in that case? 2080 or 1070 ti?

This is not necessarily correct/true as it would be dependent on the cooling solution for the cards you are comparing. For an example. a GTX 1070 Ti using a reference design cooler will be louder than perhaps a 1080 Ti with a quiet pump water cooler or a differently designed cooler which would be more quiet by for example having a large amount of surface area with radiating heat fins.

I agree with this, if you had a GTX 550 and a 580 running on the same cooler design then the one with the lower thermal design power will be more quiet.

Are you referring to both of them having the same reference cooler design, in this case then the one which would be silenter would be the one taking the higher TDP (thermal design power)? I would like to add that the load percentage does matter also because the more efficient card would have the advantage. Server grade GPUs running in their application would be more power efficient than if you replaced them with a consumer grade one which is comparable.

Like the ones that you can buy from nvidia's own site no custom card

The RTX 2080 has a different cooler design than previous generation GTX family cards. The newer RTX 2080 is more optimized for today's more modern workloads and would be able to do more computations with a lower amount of power. What I can tell you is that the RTX 2080 is more efficient than the previous generation of Nividia's consumer graphics cards although I do not happen to know much about their thermal performance as I think that this card was newly released and I do not have any experience with it and have not yet watched any other videos on the topic of the new Nvidia RTX 2080, so I at the moment would not be able to properly answer the question if it is more quiet when running, I would think that when the card is at high loads then it would be louder than the 1070 Ti although don't quote me on it as that is just based on an inference and is not supported by any facts towards these cards from other sources.

so both use Nvidia's reference cooler? Then it depends on the case (including not having a case at all) and available airflow. In good airflow situations, the open cooler design of the 2080 let's it draw more air to its heatsink and bring away heat faster. In bad airflow situations (mITX shoebox cases) then the blower on the 1070ti is better because the 2080's open cooler will lead to recycling of warm/hot air that has just been blown out, while blowers blow that heat to the outside through the I/O (display output) area.

You have better or worse coolers, that's it.
