Um.. no. Not even close. I hope the card comes with some LN2/chiller/phase unit.
of course, they will need to liquid cool the hot side of the peltier.. air cooling the peltier 'hot' side wont suffice.. the demo video was just that, a demo.. for actual application peltier+liquid heat exchanger is a must as employed by the DigitalStorm system.. u can see in pic below the liquid-cooled block with entry-exit hoses on the hot side of the peltier module('white' wafer seen sandwiched under pressure between two metal plates)..
how feasible is this type of cooling for a gpu knowing it will have higher TDP than a CPU is unknown.. so lets wait till April for Zotac to release more info
Zotac is overreaching IMO claiming 2Ghz core speed, maybe they can achive it on a single unit but to be market ready, don't think so I would LOVE to see these high Mhz in end user hand's so hope they have something up their sleeve/s
WC TEC would prolly be the best choice for cooling but you would need a serious TEC module and the supporting gear to dissipate all that heat and power the TEC module! Swiftech used to make/sell TEC equipped waterblock's but they stopped making them some time ago IIRC
It'll be the Zotac GTX 680 FTE
(Fish Tank Edition)
That actually looks pretty sweet!
Then again, for that kind of money, it had better be... http://www.digitalstormonline.com/comploadsub-zero-tec.asp?id=615827
as far as the power requirements are concerned. it uses x2 (two)only -6 pins
you do all know this has all the "new" tech within the gtx680 and can obviously do what they claim..
being skeptical ,as most are here, is all about being ill informed
Guess u meant this one by Fish Tank Edition ?..
to see the video of the "Zotac Vapor Phaze Demo System" working u can always check youtube
What if I told you mid-April is also Radeon HD 7990 launch time-frame?
so we need to wait this thing
it would be interesting since only few top of the line products that come in custom layout
It must come with one of these! Sure don't want to the price!
1.5Ghz should be possible but beyond 1.6 you need watercooling at least
at HWbot on LN2 theres one at 1.9GHZ
this is the the type of monsters i wanna see
In the remote case they release it, the price is going to be beyond $900
they need that right now not in april cuz when 690 comes out amd is dead
april fool's much
That was with the stock VRM gutted, and EVGA "Untouchables" EPower soldered on and 1.6v+ vGPU (very beefy 12 phase pwm/vrm vs stock 4 phase)
So with a great PCB you can do about 1900 on LN2, some manufacturers are now designing/outputting those stronger PCBs.
I think a super cherry picked card with EPower modded and the voltmod can do 2 GHz, but are Zotac just going to sell a bare card with no cooler here or what?
Pretty much. I thought it was kind of a waste to put a 560ti in it.
Conventional wisdom says : "2 GHz Core Clock Speed"- problematic, even with liquid nitrogen. Maybe that's ZOTAC unintentional mistake, or referring to dual-GPU based graphics card. Who knows.
With custom designs and extra stuff thrown on I don't think it's impossible. It's very unlikely to say the least. I wonder if they plan on doing a Closed Loop Liquid Cooling Solution.
is it normal that's no GTX680 is available in amazon nor newegg till now
They're all sold out. Give it a week or so.
Just keep an eye on this page. I'm waiting to see what the non-reference cards look like personally.
And who is going to provide the required memory bandwidth to that gpu? Because you ain't gonna hit 9 GHz on the memory to provide it adequate bandwidth.
