CoolIT Systems liquid cooling for HD3870 X2 Page: 1
Right on the heals of AMD announcing the availability of the ATI Radeon HD 3870 earlier this month, CoolIT Systems debuts the third installment in the Reference Series line of liquid cooling systems designed to quietly and effectively cool Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.’s highly anticipated performance graphics cards, the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2. In recent testing, the liquid cooled cards were stably clocked up to over 900MHz core clock speed and the memory pushed to 1GHz with no thermal issues.
“We’re extremely excited about the ATI Radeon™ HD 3870 X2 as it sets a new standard in high definition gaming performance leadership for AMD” said Dr. Gamal Refai-Ahmed, AMD Fellow and Chief Thermal Architect, AMD Graphics Product Group. “Using AMD’s micro-channel technology in a closed loop liquid cooling design, CoolIT is once again enabling users to exploit the full potential of 55nm ATI Radeon™ HD 3800 series architecture while still maintaining a single slot form factor.”
Using CoolIT's cooling system they have been able to get over 23000 3Dmarks on 3Dmark06, which is outstanding.
Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems comments “We are proud to successfully, leverage the micro-channel technology developed at the AMD thermal laboratory in Toronto in our solution. The cooling system for this card is extremely sophisticated given that we are cooling what amounts to a full CrossFire set-up on a single card. When you consider that most cards having only 1 GPU are typically taking up 2 PCIe slots compared to the CoolIT solution which not only delivers extremely effective cooling and higher clock speeds but also reduces the thickness to a single slot the combined CoolIT and AMD offering represents tremendous value.” He added, “We recently benchmarked this card and were able to hit over 23,500 in 3D Mark 06, which makes this, by far, the fastest video card/cooling combination we’ve ever tested.”
Wow, that is all I can say, 23500marks is one hell of a score, can anyone beat that? Please discuss on our forums.
