Point of View og TGT har nu officielt lanceret det vandkølede GeForce GTX 480 BEAST JetStream grafikkort. Grafikkortet har en 810MHz grafik core samt en 1620MHz shader clock. Kortets GDDR5 hukommelse kører ved 3800MHz.
Hand-selected by TGT, the POV/TGT GeForce GTX 480 “Beast” JetStream water cooled is running at an unprecedented 810 MHz core clock “out of the box”, 1620 MHz shader clock and 3800 MHz DDR-5 memory clock honoring TGT’s efforts to optimize and balance both, enhanced core clock settings and rock solid stability.
The POV/TGT GeForce GTX 480 “Beast” JetStream water cooled is raising the bar of the so far fastest competitive Fermi products from TGT (POV/TGT Geforce GTX 480 Ultra Charged) by another 50 MHz plus “individual headroom”. This means, that the POV/TGT GeForce GTX 480 “Beast” JetStream water cooled is the world’s first GeForce GTX 480 based 3D processor card running stable north of 800 MHz core clock. But this is not all. Depending on the local thermal cooling environment and ventilation, the “480 BEAST ” may run stable at even higher core clock rates. Frankly speaking, as TGT seriously cares about the 3D gaming enthusiasts, TGT is not only raising the core clock rate, but also significantly raising the over clocking headroom in general.
“Water cooling” is actually causing some confusion and misunderstandings. Water is not the “cooling device” within the cooling system, as water is not dissipating the heat to the outside world while running through plastic pipes. Instead, water is transporting the heat away from the POV/TGT GeForce GTX 480 “BEAST” to a large radiator equipped with one or more powerful 12cm fans running at low, less noisy speed. This large 12cm fan, as part of the water cooling system, is actually the more powerful cooling device that doesn’t leave a chance to a much smaller cooler usually to be found on a graphics card that may get “noisy” in case the GeForce GTX 480 board is over clocked. Unfortunately both, “significantly enhanced performance” based on hand selected components and “water cooling” has a price.
