Inno3D Unveils Black Freezer Series Water-Blocks for GeForce 400 Series

Inno3D is ready with a line of water blocks for GeForce 400 Series graphics cards, under the Inno3D Black Freezer series. The Inno3D Black Freezer VG-NGTX480 and VG-NGTX470. While Inno3D didn't share any more details about these, we can tell that the blocks are full-coverage, providing cooling to all vital components. The block is made of nickel/nickel-plated copper, with acrylic top (with a foil covering the top-side). Inno3D may sell these blocks individually, and/or release GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 graphics cards with these blocks factory-fitted.

Inno3D iChill GTX 470 Cooler Drawings Surface, Company Tanks Up on Fermi Stocks

Inno3D's quest for the first non-reference GeForce GTX 470 has taken a turn with the company now planning to design its own cooling assembly. First surfaced in late March, Inno3D's non-reference GTX 470 wasn't much more than a reference-design card with green colored PCB instead of black. It also retained the reference cooling assembly, albeit slightly toned down with four copper heat-pipes instead of five.

The new cooling assembly, now in the form of CAD drawings, makes use of an elaborate aluminum fin arrays to which heat from the GPU is fed by heat-pipes. These are cooled by three 80~90 mm fans. While cooling the GPU, the three also blow air onto heatsinks over the memory and VRM areas. Inno3D plans to brand its new card the Inno3D iChill GTX 470 Hawk 1280 MB. The DirectX 11 generation GeForce GTX 470 GPU packs 448 CUDA cores, and addresses 1280 MB (1.25 GB) of memory across a 320-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. The company did not share when it plans to get these out.

Inno3D Readies First ''Non-Reference'' GeForce GTX 470 Graphics Card

Inno3D seems to be in a bit of a hurry to bag the title of "first to come out with a non-reference GeForce GTX 400 graphics card," and is working tirelessly to get there. The company is readying a new "non-reference" graphics card, put in quotes because for the most part it is in fact a reference design. Traditionally, NVIDIA disallows its board partners from designing their own non-reference graphics cards based on newly-launched high-end GPUs, with a few concessions made for designs with factory-fitted water-blocks, or minor cosmetic changes, apart from letting their own sticker design, box design, bundle, and to an extant, pricing.

Inno3D's concession comes in the form of two things: 1. an NVIDIA reference-design PCB, which is now green instead of black, and 2. looking at the pictures, possibly a different cooler shroud design, although internally the cooling assembly remains reference design. Inno3D may roll out graphics cards with reference NVIDIA clock speeds, and also those with higher clock speeds. As with every other GTX 470 made so far, Inno3D's card is based on the GF100 GPU, it is DirectX 11 compliant, packs 448 CUDA cores, and 1.25 GB (1280 MB) of GDDR5 memory across a 320-bit wide interface. It supports 3-way SLI. At this point, there is no word on when exactly the card comes out, or pricing.

Inno3D Ready to Ship GeForce 400 Series Graphics Accelerators

Here are some delicious pictures of Inno3D's dispatch of GeForce GTX 400 series graphics cards, that are ready to ship. Come 26th March, and box-loads of these will reach markets all over. Initially inventories of GeForce 400 series cards across board partners could be low, but it is normal for a new GPU to have small inventories initially, which iron out in a few fortnights' time. Inno3D's accelerators most likely adhere to NVIDIA's reference designs.

Arctic Cooling Readies Twin Turbo PRO VGA Cooler

Spotted as part of the package for a custom-design upcoming graphics card SKU by Inno3D (most likely its iChill GTS 250), Arctic Cooling has come up with a new graphics card cooler: the Accelero Twin Turbo PRO. The new cooler comes with updated dissipation mechanism and fans, that either make it more silent than its predecessor for the same levels of cooling performance, or better than its predecessor at the same fan-speeds. To do so, the cooler uses two PWM-controlled 90 mm fans as opposed to two 80 mm fans on its predecessor.

Adding to the cooling efficiency is the aluminum fin count: 35 as opposed to 30 on its predecessor, upping the dissipation surface-area from 2,700 cm² on the Twin Turbo to 3,675 cm². That's an increment of 35%. The copper-made GPU contact block gives out four copper heatpipes that convey heat to the fins. The retention module supports most of today's single-GPU cards using two sets of mounting holes: 43 mm and 53 mm, except unfortunately, the GeForce GTX 200 series. A buckle-design for the retention module holds the PCB firmly. Arctic Cooling is yet to announce this cooler in its own channel brand, though as seen with its recent history, some of its best coolers such as the Accelero Xtreme GTX 280 are being given away to OEM customers, leaving the retail channels rather dry.

Inno3D Freezer X2 DHT GeForce GTX 260 Pictured

Based on the new inexpensive P897 PCB, the Freezer X2 DHT series GeForce GTX 260 will be the first graphics card by the company based on a non-reference GTX 200 series design. The card was first pictured with only its green PCB exposed, possibly because the cooler design was being finalized or embargoed (read here). By the looks of it, NVIDIA seems to have made things easy for its partners by issuing a base-design kit that allows partners to rearrange components, in a way they see fit. This helps partners use the cooling mechanism of their choice.

With the Freezer X2 DHT, Inno3D chose a modularised cooling system that consists of a large GPU cooler, heatspreaders over the memory chips, heatsinks over the NVIO2 processor and the card's VRM area, with the GPU cooler providing air-flow for these component heatsinks. The GPU cooler uses the Direct Heatpipe-Touch (DHT) technology, where the GPU contact-block has three heatpipes making direct contact with the GPU. These heatpipes convey heat to an aluminum fin array, which is subjected to air-flow by two equally-sized fans. One can expect this card to be launched during the CeBIT event.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 260 P897 PCB Pictured

NVIDIA has come up with a new inexpensive reference PCB design for the GeForce GTX 260 (55nm) codenamed P897. The new PCB does away with the numerous redundant and rudimentary connections, excessive PCB layers and some components. The new PCB design is expected to reduce manufacturing costs by as much as $15.

Inno3D will be one of the first companies to come up with a model based on the new PCB. The company is planning an accelerator using the P897 PCB and a cooler of its own. Expreview sourced a few pictures of the card. While the cooler itself isn't pictured, we can make a safe guess that it is going to be something along the lines of its previous Freezer Direct Heatpipe-Touch (DHT) series models, in which the heatpipes of the cooler make direct contact with the GPU to convey heat. Inno3D is expected to start mass-production of this accelerator soon, following which it will assign an SKU and price it. While the new PCB cuts manufacturing costs, it remains to be seen as to what extant NVIDIA's partners pass on the benefit to the consumer.

55nm GeForce GTX260 by Inno3D Found on Sale in Japan

It seems that the first graphics card using NVIDIA's latest 55nm fabrication process has in fact reached retail earlier than the January 2009 release date we had previously anticipated. A Japanese technology website has photos of an Inno3D GeForce GTX260 Gold featuring a factory overclocked, 216 SP chip, made by the 55nm process. What is interesting is that Inno3D have clearly advertised this fact by displaying 55nm on the product and in the product description. The core clock is set at 620Mhz with a memory clock of 1050Mhz, there is no information as yet on the shader clock. It can also be seen that there are no memory chips on the rear of the PCB, this means that all the memory chips are cooled by the stock cooler and there is no longer a need for backplates, as seen on many 65nm GT200 based cards. The pricing however does seem a little steep, with today's exchange rate, this would set you back around $390 USD, with online stores selling the 65nm equivalent for over $100 less, one would hope that the price will drop before it reaches the rest of the world's shores.

Inno3D GeForce 9600 GSO+ Spotted

The entry of Radeon HD 4670 did disturb NVIDIA's position, in a segment touted to be one of the cash-cow segments for both NVIDIA and AMD. It is to counter the HD 4870 in its price-range (by easing production-costs), that NVIDIA released a refreshed GeForce 9600 GSO+. The die on the GPU reads "G94-201-B1", pointing that the GPU uses the 55nm silicon fab process (9600 GSO used G92). With the reduced transistor-count on the G94 core, manufacturing the chip becomes cheaper. The real change however, is that NVIDIA made some significant changes to its shader and memory domains, hence the use of G94 core.

The shader count has been reduced from 96 on the 9600 GSO, to 48. This, by disabling 16 shaders from the G94 core. The core is clocked at 650/1675 MHz (core/shader). The GPU is allowed to use the complete width of its memory bus: 256-bit GDDR3. The card features 512 MB of memory, clocked at 1800 MHz. The memory chips featured on the Inno3D card are made by Qimonda, and have a 1.2 ns latency. The card uses a simplistic circular cooler for the GPU. It is expected to be priced at US $87.

GeForce GTX 260 with 216 Stream Processors Pictured, Benchmarked

NVIDIA is dressing up a new version of the GeForce GTX 260 GPU as reported earlier, with a revision that carries 216 shader units (against 192 for the original GTX 260). Chinese website Bear Eyes has pictured the new GPU. Other than the increased shader count, that should provide a significant boost to the shader compute power, other GPU parameters such as clock speeds remain the same. The core features 72 texturing units and 28 ROPs. The core is technically called G200-103-A2 (the older core was G200-100-A2). The card reviewed by Bear Eyes was made by Inno3D, called GeForce GTX 260 Gold. This shows that the GTX 260 brand name is here to stay.

Inno3D Innovates GeForce 9800GT with Pre-fitted Arctic Cooling and ZeroTherm Coolers

Inno3D has come up with two models of the GeForce 9800 GT graphics cards with factory-fitted coolers made by Arctic Cooling and ZeroTherm. These products branded under the iChill banner use the ZeroTherm Hurricane and Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo coolers and are accordingly named Hurricane and Twin Turbo.

Both cards use identical specifications, a 700 MHz core clock with 1500 MHz shader and 2000 MHz memory clock speeds. Inno3D claims these coolers allow high-performance settings and can maintain silent operation of as low as 0.6 sone. The cards have pre-applied Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal interface compound.

Inno3D Gets Ready with GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB GDDR3

Inno3D recently unveiled it's first card based on the new 55nm G92 based core from NVIDIA. The announcement of Inno3D GeForce 9800 GTX+ comes earlier than the scheduled mid-July launch date, but benchmarks of the plus cards are already starting to appear everywhere, so it's not a big deal. The card features the usual specs: 512MB of GDDR3 memory, 256-bit memory bus, and 738MHz/2200MHz core/memory clock speeds respectively. Charts on the Inno3D web page suggest that the 9800 GTX+ is up to 15% faster than the regular GeForce 9800 GTX.
