    Glorious Mission may not ring too many bells with western gamers, but it's a pretty popular online multiplayer shooter akin to the Battlefield franchise, based around PLA. It's only natural that graphics card makers from the mainland design special edition products around the game. It just so happens that the graphics card maker interested in Glorious Mission is Colorful, known for its over the top performance-segment graphics card designs that never cease to surprise us. Its latest creation is in on the drawing boards, and we got access.

    Based on the GeForce GTX 660 GPU, the new Colorful iGame Glorious Mission graphics card uses a cooler that builds on today's multi-fan aluminum fin-stack designs. The cooler uses a dual- 92 mm fan aluminum fin stack, to which heat is fed by four 8 mm-thick heat pipes, to cool the GPU. The two fans are covered by punched-metal sheets. Colorful didn't give us a specific date on its release, but we expect it to make it to this year's Computex, if not the 2013 Lunar New Year shopping season.

    It's pretty.
    I'll give it that.

    Doubt the heatsink which looks like a handle is worth the extra space though.

    I believe it is the largest army on the planet.
    At lease on the army side of things.
    USAF and USN are the largest Air-force and the largest Navy.

    They should've named it "Gorgeous mission" instead.
    Combined with vengeance c70 green army case, asus sabertooth, and noctua hsf, it'll be perfect.

    Nope, just fan grills, which I would remove the second I got the card.

    Loving the card completely, shame they dont make these sorts of efforts for high end stuff over here.
    Hate the name though.

    That's why I like these guys. Over-the-top, balls-to-the wall design. I can't wait for them to mod one of their Desert Eagle Low Profile cards- I can see it from here, a back plate and a bad-ass cooler, who cares if it's LP. Enthusiast all the way baby.

    Looks nice but do we really need a carrying handle on a graphics card?
