We thought N-Control's gamepad would be enough for us to gawk today, but Gigabyte trumped that, and more.
If you want a GeForce GTX 680 and have a big windows on your case, it makes sense that you'd look for one that stands out.
Gigabyte may have gone a little overboard
when it made the WindForce 5X cooler though.
That's right, the beast has five fans. Five 40 mm fans that sit on the top edge of the card instead of the side.
The goal is to ventilate hot air in a single direction, but we can't help but wonder at the higher chances of the board getting defective (five fans means five times the chance of the fan to burn out).
Then again, we can't argue with results, and nothing screams “hardcore graphics card here! Gaze upon me long and hard!” like a massive cooler.
The launch is supposed to happen very soon, but we don't know exactly when, or what price we should expect.
