Re: B3D GTX-480 Thermal Study
Rollo, while I may agree with you on many points, Xion is an objective poster.
I've had disagreements with him myself, but he is not some crazed ATI zealot, he paints things in a pretty realistic light.
For Nvidia to be the clear cut winner, they would have to beat ATI with regards to heat and power consumption, which they clearly do not. I'll be the first to admit that the 480 is the fastest card, but only with an eye to the enthusiast market when you take everything else into consideration.
