Colorful a Chinese video card manufacturer seems to be determined to make a strong and lasting impact in the video card market. Fortunately for video card enthusiasts, the company is not willing to do this by using lower prices, questionable quality or high sales volumes, but by using innovative designs and powerful configurations.
The company has decided to launch the world’s first fanless Nvidia
GeForce GTX 680
graphics adapter and it has been working on the design from some months.Colorful
’s innovative design uses a two part cooling
system with detachable components that have absolutely no moving parts.
The main piece is the principal cooling heatsink that’s directly attached to the video card’s PCB and the GPU
Enthusiasts will be pleased to find out that there is a second cooling
part that will attach to the main one in order to provide additional heat dissipation capacity to allow the user to overclock the device or use it in hotter environments that require additional cooling
The video card will reportedly
come with double the reference video memory quantity.
has decided to use 4 GB of GDDR5 video memory on its fanless Nvidia GeForce GTX 680
This will ensure higher frame rates and generally better performance when running 3D applications in very high resolutions.
The new card will be called Colorful iGame GTX 680
and will also come with various overclocking features.
We’re not quite sure if overclocking features are the best fit for a quiet, fanless video card, but we’re glad Colorful
is working hard on building a quality graphics adapter
The video card comes with a dual 8-pin power connector setup and a dual-VRM design with a special “extra” VRM card that will be user connectable when needed for overclocking.
Unfortunately we will have to wait until September to see the card on the store shelf.
