ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660 Destroyer DTC Graphics Card Pictured

ZOTAC released pictures of its upcoming GeForce GTX 660 Destroyer DTC (dual-traction cooling) graphics card for the Greater China region. The sporty-looking dual-slot cooler uses a dense aluminum fin array to which heat from the GPU is conveyed by 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes, and which is ventilated by two 90 mm fans spinning in the opposite directions. The GTX 660 Destroyer DTC features a high-grade VRM that draws power from 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Like most à la carte ZOTAC products for China, it will ship with rather small factory-overclock, but with large overclocking headroom. It's likely that ZOTAC targets the pre- Lunar New Year (Jan-Feb) shopping season in the region.

I love these naming schemes they come up with. "Destroyer"... Really?
Requiring an 8-pin and 6-pin is interesting for this card.

In this part of the world, people only have so much to spend on a graphics card. So whoever packages their product better wins. All these bells and whistles must have cost Zotac $1.

The fans spin in opposite directions. Thats interested. I wonder if it actually does anything besides look cool. If it did I would think every manufacturer would be doing it.

Overall it's probably cheaper to have 2 fans going the same direction, because otherwise it requires you to manufacture or purchase a fan differently to generic design, granted we're talking pennies probably, and if it is identical cooling performance, it's not worth spending the extra pennies for a gimmicky fan the spins the other way with alternate fin placement.
