query about card's heat generation


Mar 1, 2004
Was just wondering if anyone knew (or knows where i could find out) how much heat energy an average graphics card dissipates?
I'm in college and it would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help as i need the figure for a computer model i'm making of a card.
cheers, mike
Nope, no good review on it yet.

We've asked LARS to do one (and power consumption) for the longest time, but nothing so far.

A recent revie by Xbit has some temps, but not heat energy charts like those found for many CPUs.
