Point of View, TGT Tuning Team Develop GTX 480 Ultra Charged TFC Graphics Card

Point of View and the TGT Tuning team, which develops pre-overclocked graphics cards, are developing a new high-end variant based on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 GPU, the GeForce GTX 480 Ultra Charged TFC (triple fan cooling). The company has "Charged" and "Ultra Charged" GeForce GTX 480 already out, but the two use NVIDIA reference cooling assembly. The TFC variant makes used of a triple-fan cooler made by Arctic Cooling (likely the Accelero Xtreme Pro), which comes with individual heatsinks over the memory chips and VRM area, alongside the main heatsink that makes use of a dense aluminum fin array to which heat is conveyed from a copper base by a number of heatpipes. This card features out of the box overclocked speeds of 763/1526/950(3800) MHz (core/shader/memory(memory effective)) compared to reference speeds of 700/1401/924(3696) MHz. Pricing and availability are not known.

You will require your own home made Nuclear Power plant to keep this thing up & running.

weren't they working on a water-cooled version with a higher overclock?

Yes because of corse everyone knows you need a home made nuclear power plant to run 5970 crossfire as well, it is the new gpu power standard obviously :banghead:

I am curious what "a number of heatpipes" is, i would hope its at least 5, preferably 6 and if it is 6 then hopefully its a pretty cool card even with the overclocks.

Atleast it consumes less than SLI GTX480s and performs better. :rolleyes:

Yeah, because it's not like the GTX 480 underwent puberty, and its power draw suddenly dropped.
