Is this for real (GT200 die size)?

    Doesn't this mean that, with a bigger die size, it will produce a LOT of heat?

    It's a big ol' chip! Reminds me of the G80 IHS.

    G80 was huge.

    a large does doesnt neccesarily mean its hot, in fact because its larger, it has more area to spread the heat meaning it COULD run colder! (yay optimism)

    It is 65nm, so even worst case we know it wont be hottER than a G80 was.

    Aren't all graphics cards hot these days? I'm sure it will be warm, but quite a beast.
