What max temperature for a graphics card?

Is 80 ° C really too hot for a graphics card? According to the manufacturer's specifications of AMD and Nvidia, the answer is usually not - in the past we have even seen graphics cards work just as well with a temperature of 92 ° C. But user experience shows the opposite.

Personally, I have had a few graphics cards that allow it to reach 90 ° C or more. These worked fine when new, but six months or a year later? The graphics card starts to do row my computer. Why?

Because consumer graphics cards aren't meant to run at peak performance and 80-90 ° C all day, every day, for months at a time.

So, the optimum temperature should not exceed 80 ° C, whatever load you have placed on them. Even if these graphics cards are able to withstand a temperature of + -100 °.
