Zotac Watercooled GTX 295 Pictured

Zotac is among a small group of NVIDIA add-in board partners that is bringing out GeForce GTX 295 variants with factory-fitted water-blocks, making the cards ready for water-cooling. Zotac is likely to name its watercooled card GTX 295 Infinity. CPU3D sourced a couple of pictures of the accelerator. The new accelerator will cater to the enthusiast segment of the market, where the water-block serves as the main USP, making the accelerator come at a premium over reference-design cards.

The GTX 295 Infinity comes with a factory-fitted copper-infused block that remains sandwiched between the business-ends of the two PCBs. It uses the reference design PCBs sans the refernce cooler and its shroud. Zotac is expected to ship this accelerator with factory-overclocked parameters, which aren't known at this point in time. It is expected to be available by mid-March according to the source.

^^ very sneaky marketing plug. BTW, nice site! Great products! Engineering quality of your block looks better. I can see yours is milled from a block, whereas it looks like the Zotac is cast.

The left image in the 1st post shows milling between the barbs as well. It could still be cast then cleaned up, but Im going with both blocks are milled!

Also shouldnt all blocks made for the same card be similar in basic design? So both coolers are copper and black and fit a GTX2XX thats about it!

Is there a reason why they continue to make these big looking house cards?
