# What means junction temperature?

## What means junction temperature?

A junction temperature basically means the temperature in the junction area of an IGBT or a diode chip. In reality the temperature is not uniform across the chip. Since the temperature is measured indirectly and does not have a precise value, it is appropriate to use the term “virtual junction temperature”.

## What is a high junction temperature?

Operating at up to 110C Junction Temperature during typical gaming usage is expected and within spec,” AMD explains. In essence, the Junction reading represents the hottest part of the GPU. Where exactly that is at any given moment can vary, based on what you are doing and what part of the GPU is hit the hardest.

What is junction and ambient temperature?

θJA is the junction-to-ambient thermal resistance. θJA represents the ability of the package to conduct heat from the IC chip inside the package to the environment. θJA is defined as the difference between the junction temperature and the ambient temperature when the device is dissipating 1 W of power.

### What is a good GPU junction temperature?

While ideal GPU temperatures are usually between 65° to 85° Celsius (149° to 185° F) under load, AMD GPUs (like the Radeon RX 5700 or 6000 Series) can safely reach temperatures as high as 110 degrees Celsius (230° F).

### Should I be worried about junction temperature?

The 110-degree junction temperature is not evidence of a problem or a sudden issue with AMD graphics cards. AMD now measures its GPU temperature in new locations and reports additional data points that capture this information because it adopted more sophisticated measuring methods.

How do you calculate junction temperature?

Junction temperature is calculated by using the above thermal resistance. For a semiconductor device package used with a heat sink, in order to ensure more accurate calculations, thermal resistance of junction-to-case values should be used instead of thermal resistance of junction-to-ambient values.

#### How hot can a RX 5700 XT get?

110 degrees Celsius
Rather than throttling at an average temperature, like most GPUs, the RX 5700 XT will only throttle when the hottest part of the GPU hits the 110 degrees Celsius thermal junction temperature.

#### What is the working temperature?

The Approved Code of Practice suggests the minimum temperature in a workplace should normally be at least 16 degrees Celsius. If the work involves rigorous physical effort, the temperature should be at least 13 degrees Celsius.

What is the normal ambient temperature?

This varies from person to person, but it is somewhere between 68 and 77 degrees F on average. The temperature setting that is comfortable for an individual may fluctuate with humidity and outside temperature as well. The temperature of an air conditioned room can also be considered ambient temperature.

## What is a good CPU temp?

A good temperature for your desktop computer’s CPU is around 120℉ when idle, and under 175℉ when under stress. If you’re using a laptop, you should look for CPU temperatures between 140℉ and 190℉. If your CPU heats up beyond about 200℉, your computer can experience glitches, or simply shut down.

## Does AMD GPU overheat?

According to manufacturer specs from AMD and Nvidia, the answer is generally no—in the past, we’ve seen GPUs even rated to run as hot as 92C. But specs aren’t the whole story. Anecdotally, I’ve had a few graphics cards that allowed the GPU to hit 90C or more.

What is maximum case temperature?

In order to calculate your maximum case temperature, first multiply the amount of heat the device dissipates by the junction-to-case thermal resistance to get the temperature rise from junction to case. Then subtract this temperature rise from the maximum junction temperature to get the maximum case temperature.

### How to calculate the junction temperature of a?

Junction temperature is calculated by using the above thermal resistance. ΔT j [deg.C]＝ R th(j-a) [deg.C/W] × P LOSS [W] T j = ΔT j + T a ΔT j: Junction temperature rise R th(j-a): Thermal resistance, junction to ambient P LOSS: Power dissipation in semiconductor device T j: Junction temperature T a: Ambient temperature

### What is the junction temperature of a transistor?

Rja represents the Junction to Ambient thermal resistance in Celsius/Watts. Furthermore, the junction temperature, which is short for transistor junction temperature (semiconductor), is the maximum operating temperature of the actual semiconductor in use in the electronic device.

When does junction temperature reach a Plateau State?

The graph above shows the thermal resistance at momentary time (Transient Thermal Resistance), plotting the pulse width on the X-axis and Rth (j-a) is on the Y-axis. This graph shows us that the junction temperature rises as the current application time persists, reaching a plateau state (called thermal saturation) after 200 seconds.

#### What should the junction temperature of a GPU be?

Here’s a news from AMD that confirms the same. So, if in the Ryzen Master Utility the reported temperature is 65°C, then the actual junction temperature is just 45°C. The Temperature of the GPU usually stays in a normal range unless you start a GPU intensive job.
