Default Re: Geforce GTX 280 Performance, Price and Pictures!

This is just a G92 with more shaders, I doubt we are going to see double the performance. And if this cooler is anything like the 9800 GX2 I had, it was an internal oven, a space heater. It was awful, it got so hot you could not even touch it - although the internal core temps were mid 70s - this gave off a ton of heat inside my case. Bad design.

I dont know why vendors don't go with the arctic cooling design, a large 80mm fan at the back pushing hot air out. These little piddly 60mm and 70mm fans just dont push enough air and are loud at full speed. For me water cooling FTW!
