Inno3D Shows Off First Non-Reference GeForce GTX 470 GPU

Post by Apoptosis » Mon Mar 29, 2010 8:18 am

Inno3D is showing off what they call the first non-BBN GTX470 video card. I am guessing that BBN stands for built-by NVIDIA and it looks they have a custom cooler on the card as the rest looks like the NVIDIA reference card from what I can tell by just looking at a couple pictures.

Nice. The Fermi cards could always use more cooling. I'm not sure how bad the GTX 470 in comparison to the GTX 480, but I'm sure better cooling is almost necessary.

That looks incredibly similar to the reference design, except green instead of black. :roll:
