New cooling solution from HIS is said to deliver 17 degrees Celsius less than reference cooler. It is also quieter by 15 dB. System includes 5 nickel-plated heatpipes which are responsible for cooling performance by removing heat from core area.
Card feature 6 Dynamic Phase Control PWM IC for Core Voltage, which is to provide extra power, more stability and even more overclocking potential than reference design. HIS decided to include full solid state capacitors, which will extend durability of card’s lifespan.
There is no information about clocks and price at the moment.
