Voodoo Nation heeft een preview in elkaar gepleurt van de ATI Fury Rage, zo'n nieuw ding van ATI met de Rage128 chipset.
Hier wat info over de hitte die de Rage128 produceert (zie ook THG):
Long talk, short synopsis: Temperature is not a critical factor for the Rage 128 GL in comparision with those other modern board.
The case temperature is about 2 C (3.6 F) above the levels seen with the fan-cooled Erazor II and the heatsink-only equipped Victory II, which places it 8 C (14.4 F) below the magic line of 50 C where a malfunction could occur based on standard specs of PC boards. Subjectively that means that it felt the same when I burnt my finger on the Rage 128 as compared to when I toasted it on the Banshee heatsink. Objectively it means that you should keep your curious hands away so you won't jump around cussing.
This takes place in the "bad" climate of my tower case that has only a single fan that blows fresh air into the power supply but none that will push waste heat out. You should see even less disturbing results if you have additional cooling or better airflow in your system.
The waste heat produced by the Rage 128 is rather sharply localized on the video board itself. My network card right opposite from it felt no hotter than without video board. Issues here are really conducted heat and a potential jam of heated air in the system, but those are more relevant to bad case designs than hot chips.
