Isnt that the same cooler in the 580/570? (vapor chamber?)

And heh, cant wait for this monster. If it consumes less power than the 6990 like those slides say... VERY interesting!


EDIT: Im confused. The coolers on the 6990 also use phase like the 570/580? The article mentions, “phase change TIM”. but not phase on the heatsinks/pipes like the 570/580?

SO AWESOME!!!! Still....I wouldve thought they'd change up the fan design or something....

It'll prolly be a good $900 i bet.

Yea all u could have is 2 tho for quad sli.

On a side not this would be an easy way to start hex sli if possible.

If someone actually needed to TRI or QUAD SLI these, they would need to have their head examined. I can't image the wattage that would draw.

Check the video out of the guy on youtube who has a liquid cooled 4 way SLI on 580GTX's and Dual 1366 Xeon CPUs on an EVGA SR2 mobo with 48GB of RAM and massive massive SSD.

I believe the system has two 1000W++>>>> Power supplies.

He uses it for gaming. Apparently it'll run Crysis. :).

If there were a way to actually DO it, and I could afford it, I'd quad SLI 4 of these (although, technically, putting 2 of them in SLI is quad SLI as each board is 2 GPUS in SLI, effectively, on a board).
Think of the power. It's nice to know every single game can run at 200FPS. Comforting. Like a nice soft blankee of ones and zeros flying around on 24 billion transistors of GPU overkill

You would prolly need upwards to about 1500+W power supply.....just think of the power bill!
Im sure the AX1200 from Corsair would handle it...TDP is rumored to be 365W. If you can afford the cards, you can afford the power bill (which honestly wouldnt be much more). You guys have no idea how the electric works out...

I suppose someone with a triple 30" monitor setup might take advantage of these in sli. For most of us it's complete overkill, but then again, oc members prefer rigs to be overkill! We're all a little sick in the head when it comes to pc hardware.

Please make it 9" Nvidia ...so I don't have to rearrange my HD's! Again! the 460's are just right for my antique case.:eh?:

So, you would need 2 of these to run 3 monitors in Nvidia Surround, correct?

I wouldn't expect you to need more than one. Nvidia GPUs can power 2 monitors each. Dual GPU cards normally can power 3 monitors. They could probably power 4 monitors if they put 4 monitor connections on the card.

Previous dual GPU cards (GTX 295 / 9800 GX2) that I've owned have been able to power 3 monitors. They had 2 DVI ports an 1 HDMI port on them.

Interesting.
Officially, this is not a PCIe card. Neither is the 6990, for that matter.

If 612mhz is the real clock these things will come at, then these full 580 cores might actually get outperformed by the OC6990 out of the box. Heres to hoping Nvidia just put the clocks where they are so that they can say the 590 consumes less power than the 6990, and probably have a nice cool and quiet card at stock. But then include some sort of "AUSUM" switch like the 6990 where the clocks can be cranked up and you get true 580SLI on a card, at the cost heat and noise.
