The G4 Cube with ATI Radeon. Heat?
writes "Previously I heard many a statement that the
G4 Cube could not ship with an ATI Radeon card, not
only because Steve Jobs was very cross with ATI, but
also because the Cube, without fans or more active
cooling methods, would not handle the heat produced
by the Radeon card. In fact, it was said that attempts
had been made by buyers and the internal sensor for
temperature would shutdown the cube after a small
amount of time operating with an ATI Radeon card. So
now I wonder, since Apple is shipping the G4 Cube
with ATI Radeon cards, does this mean that the cube
has been somewhat redesigned to accomodate it, or
has the card been re-engineered to produce less heat?
Hopefully a fan, or other loud component, was not part
of the sollution. "
