Voodoo Heater?

It seems that one fact that slipped by almost unmentioned in the VSA-100 launch at Comdex yesterday was that the top of the range Voodoo 5 6000 card handily doubles as an electric fire to heat your room...

This picture over on the Firing Squad shows that the V5-6000 will come with an external power supply, pumping up to 100W (!) into your $600 graphics card.

With four processors and god knows how many RAM chips on board, imagine how hot that thing will run. Then think about how much power the 32 processor Quantum 3D board will need. Does that thing come with a portable generator? I guess that would explain the $40,000 price tag... Ouch.
