That's one ugly beast. And to imagine that the G80 (8X00 series) is supposed to demand 175W peak.. while ATI's equivalent, the R600, is supposed to need up to 200W peak! If the G80 needs air + water cooling, what will the R600 demand? That you constantly pour liquid nitrogen on it? :thumbsup:

Needs fan and watercooling daaaaaaang

That's just plain-ass dumb. It adds an huge addition cost to the user that is just trying to keep ahead of the game. Incorporate peltier cooling into the graphics board and have done with the water cooled portion. Thermo-electric cooling=70 watts per unit. Requiring water-cooling is just stupid.

Ruminations...

 

When a man has no Future, the Present passes too quickly to be assimilated and only the static Past has value.

That looks pretty much exactly like an old Gf6000 series card with a bit of homebrew plumbing added. I very much doubt Nvidia would releease a card that required watercooling since few people have the basic skills required to set it up.

...WHO LUVS YA, BABY!!...

A long, long time ago, but I can still remember,
How the Trolling used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance, I could egg on a few Trolls to "dance",
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But then Krackhead left and so did Klown;
Volo and Turnip were banned, Mystake got run out o' town.
Bad news on the Front Page,
BIOweenia said goodbye in a heated rage.
I can't remember if I cried
When I heard that TORN was recently fried,
But sadness touched me deep inside,
The day...Black Isle died.


For tarna, Visc, an' the rest o' the ol' Islanders that fell along the way

An article on the technical specs behind the G80. Geez, is all I have to say..

Dear GOD! No wonder you need to nitro-cool it... :blink::o:o

 

Edit: removed specs and comments, since there seems to be some speculation on the nature of the 128 "stream processors" on the G80.

I wonder what the fps would be in a game like Ut2k7 or Crysis with that beast of a card.

I dont think Crysis is going to run well on anything less than a monster SLI system.
