I think you're misunderstanding what he's asking.
He asked why as similar GPU models are re-released (the same
electronics) they've got a much smaller package than they used to.
I remember purchasing a GeForce 5200 when it was new, and it had a
massive heatsink and fan setup on it. A few years later, I purchased
another, and it just had a simple heatsink on it. I don't believe my
answer is bogus as the card was the same spec, but produced less heat
and needed less heatsink to operate.
