SPIED: Nvidia GTX 470 'Fermi' PCB Cut-out Cooler

Nvidia will later this month formally debut its GF100-based cards the GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480. These cards already exist and are quietly on display at CeBit in Germany, and shots of the product in action have just hit the net.

Chinese website Expreview has board shots of what it claims is a GTX 470 and PC Games Hardware has pictures of one running in action inside a live computer case.

What's interesting to note is that the board shot featured on Expreview show an underside of the card which has cutouts on the PCB that appear to facilitate cooling – something that we've seen before on the GeForce GTX 295.

Nvidia will officially debut the GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480 products on March 26.
