Sapphire unveils Blizzard RADEON X850 XT with "liquid-metal" cooling
Sapphire Technology, known by its original approach to cooling, unveiled the new Blizzard graphics card that utilizes yet another innovation based on the so-called "liquid metal". According to the vendor, the high efficiency of the new system enabled to reduce temperature to the record low value and also reduce the cooling system noise.
Sapphire Blizzard RADEON X850 XT Platinum Edition for PCI Express has 256MB GDDR3 memory and operates at 540/1,180 MHz clock rates. It has 2 x DVI-I and YPrPB component HDTV interfaces.
The cooling system works on some kind of a "liquid-metal" substance which mixture has not been disclosed. An electromagnetic pump is used to move this liquid. NanoCoolers, the developer of this, claims the substance is neither poisonous, nor flammable and has 65 times higher heat conductivity than water. As a result the GPU temperature is reduced by another 10 degrees comparing to the Arctic Cooling system.
