    Various photos of the coolers that will prevent ATI's next gen Radeon HD 4800 series cards from overheating have recently emerged over the Internet. Below are the picture of ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2, Radeon HD 4870 and Radeon HD 4850 respectively.

    no cooling for the plx chip on the x2? why is that the 3850 has memory cooling that appears better then that of the 3870?

    looks like they've done some serious improvements to the x2 cooler compared to what we saw with the 3870x2 . . . that heat pipe alone should help even out GPU temps

    I really liked the transparent red on the 3xxx series, but these look nice too. That single slot looks especially nice. I was hoping they'd bring back a variation of the 2900 flame job.

    we'll have to wait until ATI's ego builds back up some before we start seeing flame designs again :laugh:

    Nice I like the heatpipes connecting the two copper heatsinks on the X2 cooler. It will surely perform better then the copper and aluminum setup of the 3870X2

    They do look nice, but like the pair's of x1950's and HD3870's the heatsinks came off and went on water before I ever used them.

    hmm... i like the black/red tones to the x2 cooler, but then again, none of that will matter coz mine will be getting liquid cooled ^^

    woo, cant wait for some actual performance benchies :)

    Cases really need to start coming with support brackets for video cards. They are starting to get quite a bit heavy these days.
    Kei says thanks.

    They use TIM padding, the same ones they use over the memory banks over the PLX lane arbiter, just that it's sized to cover the chip.

    Nice, but I could care less of looks, my favorite cooler design of all times would be the one for the 8800 Ultra :) Matte, black, 100% function without trying to look flamboyant, no stickers, etc.

    As long as it cools well and makes as little noise as possible I don't care about looks.

    The black one looks great, hope it's performs as good as it looks.:)

    Well looks like it does have cooling on it if you look real carefully just not like the GPU's have

    The 4870x2 will be a mammoth. The all copper setup will definitely add some ounces too the heaviest card ever. I stuck a delta fan on my 3870x2 but I had to take the giant red metal block off since it wouldn't even stay in the pci slot with the added mass. I can only imagine how much this beasty will weigh.

    I hope can beat or as the same performance with the new nvidia GTX280, as the most part of us have a chipset intel we will be able all to make a CROSS FIRE X, Halleluja !! Whoohooo !

    But I believe that the GTX280 will be the best, as always ... =( ... =)

    Why oh why did they have to revert back to the shitty blower fan on the 4870?

    the 3870 cooler did such a good job, even if it was bloody loud.

    nice color scheme, Graphics on a card are not needed because you can only see the side of the card.
