PNY Pushes Liquid Cooled Graphics Cards to the Masses
"Designed to increase performance while reducing noise and temperature, PNY’s Liquid Cooled Graphics offers the fastest factory-overclocked card currently on the market at 857 MHz," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY. "The simple all-in-one design offers a powerful, yet easy to install and cost-effective gaming solution that’s backed by the PNY warranty. This highly anticipated graphics option will enable more enthusiast gamers to experience gaming in a whole new way."
According to PNY, these liquid cooled cards run up to 30 percent cooler, 30 percent quieter, and 10 percent faster than air cooled cards built around Nvidia's reference design. That's a mighty combination, but it doesn't come cheap. The XLR* Liquid Cooled GTX 580 carries and MSRP of $580, while the XLR* Liquid Cooled GTX 580 with CPU Cooling costs $650.
