In a market where dual-GPU, single-PCB graphics cards are readily available from most major OEMs, product manufacturers are increasingly turning to water cooling as a way to differentiate their products and out-maneuver their competitors. The superior thermal characteristics of liquid cooling allows companies like BFG to hit higher core / memory clocks than they might using air alone.  However, H2O-reliant high-end video cards cater to an even smaller slice of the market—specifically, those enthusiasts with big money to spend and who are comfortable using water in their own PC. BFG's GTX 295... Read more...
At the back end of last month, we heard a juicy rumor that seemed, well, perfectly good enough to be true. Sure enough, the whispers of a water-cooled GTX 295 have led to a real, honest-to-goodness product, though it's not being produced by either of the vendors we expected. Instead, it's being delivered by GPU mainstay BFG Technologies.The new card easily boasts one of the longest product names we've seen to date. So long, in fact, that we'll just put it out there for you to wrap your mind around: BFG GeForce GTX 295 H2O graphics card with ThermoIntelligence Water Cooling Solution. Got all that?...

A few weeks back, we took an in-depth look at the dual-GPU powered NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295. Just to recap a bit; the GeForce GTX 295 is NVIDIA's current flagship graphics card that couples a pair of 55nm GT200 GPUs with 1792MB of frame buffer memory, culminating in what is ultimately the fastest, single graphics adapter on the market at this time. It appeared after about 5 months of work and fine tuning, NVIDIA was sick and tired of letting AMD's Radeon HD 4870 X2 lead the pack as the fastest single graphics card in the market. In our launch article, we also gave you a glimpse of the EVGA GeForce... Read more...
If you consider yourself a graphics snob, there's a good chance you were still unimpressed by the performance doled out from NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 285. If so, help could soon be on the way. We're hearing reports that both Zotac and EVGA are currently working up water-cooled GTX 295 GPUs, with the former outfit also cooking up a liquid-assisted GTX 285. Granted, nothing on either of these is official just yet, but given the perpetual demand for more speed and higher frame rates, we certainly wouldn't put the idea beyond the realm of feasibility. Purportedly, the water-cooled GTX 285 could overcome... Read more...
