Photo of the day: ABIT Siluro GF4 Ti4200 OTES, operation principles

We´ve got some interesting graphics cards for our videolab. One is already known ABIT Siluro GF4 Ti4200 OTES, featuring unusual "exhaust" cooling system.



Primae impressionis: the turbine is rather noisy, but enables 275/550 MHz core/memory clocks similar to Ti4400-based cards. OTES operation principle is: the chip heats cooler´s copper base, featuring a soldered copper pipe with a special liquid (noticeable at the cooler´s bottom). The pipe is connected to a copper heat-sink at the end of the exhaust. This heat-sink is cooled by airflow, created by 7200 RPM turbine cooler.




Albatron announces new products

Albatron announced new MX480 graphics card, based on GeForce4 MX440 AGP 8x, and two mobos: KX400-8X and PX845PEV Pro.

MX480 AGP 8x core clock is 275MHz, 64MB of 128-bit DDR operates at 512 MHz. The card features analog, digital DVI and video inputs.

Albatron KX400-8X mobo supports new Athlon XP with 333MHz FSB, up to DDR400 memory and AGP 8.

Albatron PX845PEV Pro bases on new Intel 845PE supporting DDR333 and supports DDR400 through overclocking settings.
