eVGA Announces Liquid-Cooled GeForce 7950 GX2

We usually think of liquid cooling as of something meant exclusively for enthusiasts. eVGA is one of the few companies that established volume production of liquid-cooled graphics cards. Its previous product, eVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX KO, entered the "elite" Black Pearl series. In that case liquid cooling allowed to increase clock rates to 490/1300 MHz.

And now eVGA decided to cool down today's most powerful NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2. As you remember, it bases on a pair of G71 GPUs - 48 pixel and 16 vertex pipelines, 76.8 GB/s bandwidth, 24 billion texture elements per second fill rate. The card has 1GB GDDR3.

The vendor doesn't shed light on technical details of eVGA e-GeForce 7950 GX2 Black Pearl, but clock rates will obviously be higher. The previous Black Pearl debuted at $1000, and we believe this time it won't change much. The difference between a "usual" eVGA e-GeForce 7950 GX2 ($600) is more than considerable, but for some people it's easier to spend another $400 then mess with liquid cooling themselves.

We'll provide technical details as soon as we have them.
