Galaxy Shows A Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 GPU At Computex

Post by Bwall » Sat Jun 05, 2010 2:40 am

Galaxy showed off the first known dual Fermi card here at Computex 2010. The little bit that we know is that the card comes with an eight phase VRM plus two others phases for memory. No price or ETA was given but the card looks very close to being complete. We can't wait to see this bad boy in action!

I'm more worried about the heat output.

It seems to me that monster should have a separate enclosure with fans and even it's own power supply. Have it set on your desk and then connect it to your computer thru some sort of cable connector.

That is called the Thermaltake Element 5 case:

Air is sucked in the front bezel, directed down a tunnel with a fan and straight to the video cars and then routed straight out the case... Now that is what I call a fan duct!

Nice case; the air duct feature is very useful for high temperature cards - especially for fermi. :)

Both the Dual 470, and the 470 Razor are the GPUs I most want at this time.

The HAF X has the same duct setup as well.
