Default 48xx Powerplay and idle power consumption?

I am thinking of getting a Sapphire 1GB 4870 with the non-reference cooler.
I had a Sapphire 512MB 4870 briefly when the first came out but, I ended up getting a GTX260 instead. I've sold that card, and am looking at ATI cards again (currently using a 4670).

Are the new ATI cards cooler at idle? (they idled pretty hot with the first round of
drivers). Most the reviews and data on the internet is from when the cards were new on the market. I'm wondering if they are a bit cooler running now a couple months later.

Here is the card I'm looking at:
