    Brea, California and Munich, Germany - January 2, 2007 — EVGA Announces new faster e-GeForce 8800's with ACS³ Cooling

    EVGA, a leading provider of performance computing hardware, today announced the release of their e-GeForce 8800 GTX KO w/ ACS³ (P/N: 768-P2-N837-AR) and 8800 GTS KO w/ ACS³ (P/N: 640-P2-N827-AR) NVIDIA® technology-based graphics card. The new 8800GTX KO ACS3, in addition to EVGA's patented ACS3 cooling, is spec'd at an amazing 626MHz core clock with 2.0GHz memory. The 8800GTS is spec'd at a groundbreaking 580MHz core, 1.7GHz memory. These new graphics cards will be available at online retailers at an MSRP of $649.99 for the 8800GTX KO ACS3, and $479.99 for the 8800GTS KO ACS3.

    These new cards, in addition to strict in house testing, feature EVGA's exclusive ACS3 cooling which ensures top notch quality, performance and reliability for gamers. This same level of testing and quality allowed Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido to set the 3DMark 2006 world record at over 24,000 points with a pair of EVGA 8800GTX's and an EVGA 680i mainboard.

    "These new EVGA 8800 cards with ACS³ cooling crank up the performance and take gaming to revolutionary levels. EVGA's ACS³ cooling technology aids in the increased performance and reliability of these higher performance EVGA 8800 cards." said Andrew Han, President and CEO of EVGA.

    In addition to the new ACS3 models, EVGA is also announcing two Superclocked models, with EVGA reference cooling:
    • e-GeForce 8800 GTX Superclocked (P/N: 768-P2-N835-AR) is spec'd at 621MHz core clock with 2.0GHz memory.

    • e-GeForce 8800 GTS Superclocked (P/N: 640-P2-N825-AR) is spec'd at 576MHz core clock with 1.7GHz memory.

    yea it is pretty much marketing. below the hood you will find a standard cooler. But they are faster than usual...that is the interesting part.

    From what I can see in the picture two posts up, it looks like the same cooler with a large metal shroud all around. You can evn see the heatpipe in the same spot on the side. I would like to see some test results.
