NVIDIA GeForce 8200 IGP having heat issues?

Posted on Tuesday, January 29 2008 @ 01:06:15 CET by

FUD Zilla heard NVIDIA is having heat issues with its MCP78U (GeForce 8200) IGP chipset:
We've been informed that Nvidia is having some heat issues with its upcoming top of the range IGP, the MCP78U, as it produces too much heat and as such needs active cooling. This does't seem to have gone down well with Nvidia's partners and some have dropped this product before it even has launched.

Since this IGP will mainly be used on mATX motherboards, it seems like motherboard makers aren't happy to use a fan cooled chipset heatsink, especially when the MCP78S and AMD's RS780 doesn't need the additional cooling.
