NVIDIA Puts Its (New) Cards on the Table

Gainward CoolFX PowerPack! Ultra/1800XP "Golden Sample"

This is the mile-long name Gainward's has given its water-cooled version of its GeForce FX 5950 Ultra. It is aimed squarely at the hardware enthusiast - read: for the gaming frag freaks among us - who wants to overclock the card without running it at high temperatures for extended periods of time. As a bonus, it is also much quieter than a classical air-cooling setup.

Gainward's FX5950 Ultra card is called "Ultra/1800 XP". In addition to the classical air-based cooling solution, Gainward also offers the CoolFX watercooling version.

The back of the card is cooled by a passive heatsink.
