Interesting. Do you have a link with more details? The one I got seems to run cool enough (22°C to 32° idle, 45°C to 55° while busy though I haven't stress-tested it). One core always seems to be 10 degrees higher than the other, which is strange but could just be sensor calibration: the sensor on the hard drive tends to agree with the lower core reading. I've never heard the cooling fan. But I very well may have got the later revision: I ordered it back at the beginning of December, but they didn't ship it until after a long delay (some of which they told me about when I ordered, and some of which went week to week with no progress on the order for quite a while). A revision would certainly explain that.bdwilcox wrote:Unfortunately, the first revision of Zino's had a bad reputation for overheating. Might want to stick with the new ones just to ensure you get a later revision.
You'd think so, but Flash is ridiculously more CPU-intensive for reasons I don't think even Adobe can explain (I'd love to hear them try, but I suspect if they actually could they'd be able to fix it). Raw video shouldn't be a problem, but wrapped in Flash I'd be a bit worried. Take a look at Anand's review (see page 3). But that's with the 10.x beta of Flash, and perhaps as Adobe improves their GPU offloading (and perhaps as AMD revises the graphics drivers) the IGP can help out more -- there's some links that suggest this in the comments thread for that article.iamajai wrote:Ubergerbil: Sounds like you have the dual core Zino...do you think the single core will adequately run flash video at 1080P?
