ASUS ENGTX480 (nVidia Fermi) (LostCircuits)  - FrostyTech.com ASUS ENGTX480 (nVidia Fermi) (LostCircuits)

The points raised above are what they are, weaknesses in performance and concept, some of which can be viewed as reaction to the necessity of bringing something to market soon. On the other hand, when we say "weakness in performance" and "imbalance" we merely mean that the current implementations may be short-selling themselves and that there is a very good possibility of drive tweaks or slight adjustments in silicon to unleash a "full version" of Fermi (or GF100) and to make the individual parts play a bit nicer with each other for a major performance boost. Anything is possible in the near future, particularly, given the relative "novelty factor" of GDDR5 for nVidia, we would expect nVidia to ramp up the memory speed a bit with the next stepping and that will already add a performance boost in quite a few applications, particularly at high resolutions and antialiasing. None of the above mentioned criticism can take away from the fact that the ENGTX480 is the single most powerful graphics card we have laid our hands on thus far. Yes, there are some flaws but they are negligible in the grand picture of the performance of the ENGTX480 which is one hell of a card. Maybe a bit ahead of its time with respect to some features but somebody needs to trailblaze the future developments. The Fermi is certainly a step in the right direction.

Scythe Setsugen VGA Cooler - FrostyTech.com Scythe Setsugen VGA Cooler

Scythe is announcing today the second High-End VGA Cooler by the name “Setsugen” (English: Snow field). Setsugen VGA Cooler is equipped with a genuine Slip Stream 120 mm Slim fan which comes with a fan controller that can be mounted in a free PCI Slot. Fan speed can be individually adjusted between 800 (± 30%) to 2,000 rpm (± 10%) which creates an airflow of 19.40 to 45,47 CFM respectively 32 to 76 m³/h. This allows the custom adjustment airflow and noise level (19.53 – 33.67 dBA) according to everyone’s requirements and system specific ambient.

In order to use the full potential of the supplied fan, the M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure) fin structure from the famous Mugen 2 CPU Cooler has been adopted. Thereby, Setsugen VGA Cooler is divided into 4 fin blocks whereas each of them is connected to a 6 mm thickness copper heatpipe. To further simplify the mounting process, new mechanism has been invented. Depending on VGA card, four screws need to be shifted to the proper mounting hole locations, and then secure by using the supplied backplate and thumb screws. Setsugen VGA Cooler is compatible to various VGA cards such as ATI® Radeon HD 4850, HD 4870, HD 4890, HD 5850 and HD 5870 as well as Nvidia® GeForce GTS 250, GTX 260, GTX 275, GTX 280 and GTX 285. (Complete compatibility list can be found under the Specifications.) Various of aluminum hetasinks in different size and shape are supplied along with thermal compound to allow the best possible compatibility and cooling for your VGA Card.
