I have noticed that after switching from nvidia blob 295.x to 304.x, nvidia-settings utility suddenly shows GPU temp like 20 degrees less when GPU is under load (playing a game). It was around 80C, with newer driver and tool it's around 60.

Why is that and why is the difference so big? Which one is the right temperature?
