PNY Launches GeForce Liquid Cooled Graphics Cards : Page - 1/1
PNY Technologies is now launching their all-in-one Liquid Cooled Graphics solution. The new line of Liquid Cooled Graphics will debut with the XLR8TM Liquid Cooled GeForce® GTX 580.

PNY’s new Liquid Cooled Graphics system delivers significant benefits, with up to 30% cooler temperatures, 30% quieter acoustics and 10% faster performance than the standard reference designed NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. With increased overclocking headroom versus air cooled, the liquid keeps overall temperature and noise levels low, while providing better performance for gamers. With a 30% reduction in temperature, PC parts are protected due to lower exposure to hot temperatures. Additionally, less noise is produced as fans aren’t running at maximum speed to compensate for the heat. Lower acoustics means a quieter gaming environment for more intense concentration and the option for gamers to eliminate the use of headphones to mask noise levels. The overall advantage is extreme performance and higher frame rates without the heat.

“Designed to increase performance while reducing noise and temperature, PNY’s Liquid Cooled Graphics offers the fastest factory-overclocked card currently on the market at 857 MHz,” said Jonathan Filleau, Marketing Manager, Consumer Products EMEA at PNY Europe. “The simple all-in-one design offers a powerful, yet easy to install and cost-effective gaming solution that’s backed by the PNY warranty. This highly anticipated graphics option will enable more enthusiast gamers to experience gaming in a whole new way.”

  • 1536MB of GDDR5 frame buffer memory

  • 202.18 GB/second memory bandwidth
