    ATI always has had a history of over-heating-ness

    Well maybe AMD had, but still. Meh its only rumors, its not that i could care less about the graphics, i just wont a console that will provide me with fun, and won't die at the same time.

    Bring on the Xbomb720, now with more calorific value and exploding action.

    Absurd but possible messages aside, it's a good and bad call, Good call for graphics and games, bad call for cooling and console lifespan.

    well putting 2 90nm chips next to each other was a bad idea from the start
    and the poor cooling solution MS designed didnt help the situation

    but now we have 40nm for GPU and 45nm for CPU (soon to be 32nm)
    so the heat shouldnt be a problem anymore
