Anandtech shows different numbers, and a different verdict. Tomshardware is also concerned about the temps and heat. Oh well, if you go for the fastest single GPU videocard "today", you can't miss: GeForce480 GTX. But this is just for a little minority, friend. I don't want all that heat in my room, I don't want a card that is not environment friendly, and why not, I don't want one that is not my pocket friendly. Nvidia must work on the engineering of their cards in the future to get a better balance between all those factors. For the time being, they are only focused on performance at the cost of the rest it seems.
