You mean the GPU?  Hmm. Maybe...  It's dual boot, and I can watch a DVD all the way through with XP.

But there might be a difference in how XP and Squeeze use the GPU, making XP cooler.  XP is using the proprietary Nvidia drivers.

I'll have to come up with some method to stress the GPU without watching a video.  Maybe a couple hundred instances of glxgears or something...
