    Leadtek Research Inc., known globally for extreme visual graphics technology development, today launched a new high end graphics card - the WinFast PX8800 ULTRA - Leviathan, equipped with an advanced specially designed water cooling system. Unlike WinFast PX8800 ULTRA, PX8800 ULTRA - Leviathan comes with increased GPU and memory core clocks up to 684/2322MHz and 768MB/384 bit GDDR3 memory. The water cooling module that answers for these frequencies is actually a 120x120x25mm aluminum alloy radiator hooked up to a copper water block and a 12V pump with 1200 ml/minute minimum flow rate. All this is fully-sealed and filled with Anti-Corrosion additive for long-time operation without further maintenance. Leadtek will show the WinFast PX8800 ULTRA - Leviathan at Computex Taipei 2007 in Hall 1, A726.

    I realise they put an anti-corrosive agent in the fluid, but why do they have to mix copper and alum in the loop?:slap:

    Looks like a single slot cooling solution, but the card has the standard dual bracket on it.

    cheaper I guess for them and they can charge a little bit more. If it was all copper, you would see why the price was so high and what not. I like this card, but the ridiculous price points nvidia has set makes this card not a hot seller. It will be relegated to the Maximum PC Dream PC Builds.

    I agree, after around 4 months to a year this thing is going to be a corroded piece of junk. I really don't understand what gets into engineers minds these days. Skip the cheap aluminum and use all copper. Or heck, even the other way around just don't mix them.

    QFT. Aluminium radiators arent that bad since they dissipate heat quicker, anyway, I would rather get a third party cooling solution than this...
