For those of you considering moving to a watercooled setup in the near future; if you're looking at the Swiftech range of waterblocks , then this article is for you. First and foremost, it appears that the Swiftech Storm G4 is now a discontinued item. So if you're specifically looking for the G4, you'd better nab it before stocks run out.
Complimenting the existing Apogee Standard (which will remain in production for the forseeable future), will be two new waterblocks: The Apogee GT and the Apogee GTX.
Apogee GT - The Apogee GT production is progressing more or less on schedule. To be on the safe side however, Swiftech have made the decision to postpone the public release of the new Apogee GT to January 15 instead of January 1st as originally planned.
Apogee GTX - A luxury version of the Apogee GT, featuring a Chrome plated Aluminum housing. This product is expected to be released also mid January. Price point is undefined, at the moment.
There has also been some interesting developments from Swiftech with regards to the Nvidia GeForce 8800 series cards. Swiftech have launched production of the MC21 heatsink, a small aluminum heatsink specifically adapted for voltage regulators on the GeForce 8800 series cards. They are expected to be released within a month. Swiftech are also working on an all-new cooling solution for the 8800 series card. Do not expect production until sometime in the first quarter of 2007.
There will also be a blister-pack retail version of the MCW60-R GPU block, which will include the G80 adapter plate, but no Ramsinks. This can be expected for release within the next two weeks.
