Sapphire produces a 3-slot Radeon X1900 XTX water-cooled from factory

Sapphire has given word to us that its unique Blizzard Radeon X1900 XTX video card is now shipping. The card stands out from other X1900 XTX cards by including a factory integrated water-cooling device, which mounts a copper water block on the GPU for maximum heat dissipation. Those interested in Sapphire's card will have to take caution however, as the card consumes considerable space. With standard Radeon X1900 XTX boards already taking up two expansion bays, Sapphire's monster card takes up an additional bay for a total of three slots.

Quick Specifications:

  • Blizzard Cooling System
  • Copper water block and radiator
  • 512MB GDDR3 memory
  • 650MHz Core
  • 1550MHz Memory
  • PCIe 16x native
  • Dual DVI outputs
  • Video In/Video Out connectors

Interestingly, the water cooling unit also comes equipped with an electronic fan which helps move air over the radiators for increased performance. The fan can be turned on or off depending on how far a customer chooses to overclock the board. The card's onboard memory chips are cooled by conventional heatsinks, which while adequate, don't really provide balanced cooling performance. Overclocking the card's memory would be improved had there been a heat pipe connecting all the memory heatsinks to the water-block.
