Aside from that not being a press release, I don't see where it's awful. NVIDIA says you'll see those cards on shelves on the 12th of this month.

While this exact news article may not be a press release, have you read any of the many, many poorly translated press releases/info on coming products/other such stuff??

Half the time they cant make sense and the other half the time is spent telling you how 'blazing fast' something is.


I guess I'm bored of hearing all this Failme news without seeing anything out as of yet.

If your going to shout about a product or some other fine thing your coming out with....at least have something to shout about in the first place. All I see at the minute are boxes in some storage facility and not cards in peoples rig. :shadedshu


When the latter happens, they by all means shout about a new (rebranded) cooling solution.

Well, welcome to planet Earth. This is a pretty normal product launch. Reviews were allowed to be published less than a month ahead of the cards reaching the store, giving space for each of the AIC partners to spread news about their products. There's nothing absurd/awful about any of it.

That's your view, mine is above...expression of different views is what a forum is all about. ;)


I stand by my statements and until I see cards they wont change.


Edit:

Can we at least agree on this being yet another AC rebranded cooler??

aside from the random rant above that should be removed to some sort of internal discussion rather than appearing on our news page discussion;

I think the heat argument is essentially goign away with all of the cooling and board enhancements we're seeign pre-launch.

By the time they hit the shelves it seems liek a wide array of solutions will be avialable to where the argument becomes "Is this card worth the extra cash or should I buy a regular 470 and get an after market cooler?"

seems like nvidia's partners have the issue handled imo.

Ah yes, the box thread.

Now these boxes I can believe.

Dunno. Got some pics/drawings of the AC version?

Aside from the fans that are a little different, the entire cooling unit looks the same.

Pretty obvious its a rebrand. :)


Edit: The pictures above are also the "Extreme" edition...so I assume they are slightly different than the AC unit on this Inno3D card.

Edit 2: Better picture added. :toast:

Definitely not that cooler, the heat pipe design is different. I wouldn't be so sure that this is a rebrand.

I never said it was exactly that cooler, but I did say its a rebranded Arctic Cooling unit.



Inno3D have used AC products on their cards before...."iChill" for example. :)

now that's is intelligent, go to hell XFX !!! If you do not want to spend all the money you earn in some new cooling solution because you're too greedy.

Instead of seeking solutions do not care because it affects only gain the money.

I don't need to be told what forums are for, however we can all tell the normal from the abnormal, and that doesn't have to be according to anyone's opinion. Less than a month's delay between launch and cards reaching stores isn't abnormal.

Besides, here in India, the sales have already begun. Here's a listing: http://www.lynx-india.com/index.php?categoryID=674&offset=16

Can we at least agree on this being yet another AC rebranded cooler??
Yes we can. It has the obvious reversed fan design of Arctic Cooling on the middle fan. But the kicker is that the side fans are regular.

Also it looks like middle fan is 92mm and side fans 80mm. Opposed to 3x80mm in Accelero Extremes. That is likely so that it can tame the GTX 480. GTX 280 version is 250W and 4870x2 version was 320W.

Also you can compare the 4870x2 version with the heatpipe X to the cad thing: http://www.arctic-cooling.com/catalog/images/gallery/4870X2_06h.png
http://www.techpowerup.com/img/10-04-07/25b.jpg

Oh and buy this if you don't want to spend 50€-60€/$67-$77 more later on Accelero ;)

edit: the GTX260 Inno3D iChill came out way before you could actually get Accelero Xtreme on store. They most likely steal the first Acceleros again and leave rest waiting.

Pretty tall card actually, good luck trying to run them in SLI.
It'll be 3 slots like all previous Acceleros. So three 16x slots needed for SLI. Can be done on x58 boards and high end P55.

not the way slot spacing is, all boards have single spacing for the slots, having a 3 slot card makes configs harder due to 3 slots total being used up and having a SLI board that way usually makes the second PCI E 16x slot not usable. TBH I think they should move the cooling to the side closest to door or a twin fin array that is sandwiching the card. that also Cools VRM and Memory instead of just GPU.

Yes we can. It has the obvious reversed fan design of Arctic Cooling on the middle fan. But the kicker is that the side fans are regular.

Also it looks like middle fan is 92mm and side fans 80mm. Opposed to 3x80mm in Accelero Extremes. That is likely so that it can tame the GTX 480. GTX 280 version is 250W and 4870x2 version was 320W.

Happens all the time with new video card releases, even when the 5800 series launched people couldn't get there hands on em till weeks later.

Anyways, that's a real nice cooler, hope they can keep the temps down to a good degree unlike the stock Fermi heatsink.

Since the 470 is so hot to begin with its a shame that the Inno3D iChill isant a better cooler.

(fins should be along the axis of the card and the exhaust should be improved to aid in removal of heat rather than just swirling it all over the inside of the case)

Stock coolers are meant to keep the card cool under non overclocked situations. Atleast back in the day they were, hence why i had a AC VGA Silencer Rev 3 on my Radeon 9700 Pro AIW (Overclock)

sorry I misspoke, I reworded my comment (stock cooler is ok because its stock but if a company is gonna go through all the baloney to build a better cooler they should have tried harder)

(omg, that Inno3D GTX260 "iChill" looks even worse)
