Galaxy is the world's first single-slot graphics card GeForce GTX260 +

Monday, September 28, 2009

In recent years almost all the major video card manufacturers pay great attention to the cooling of their products. This is due to the fact that the heat of modern high graphics accelerators (for example, a series of GeForce GT200) is significantly higher than the previous generation, and cooling of such devices require more powerful cooler. As a result, the light began to appear non-reference graphics cards with cooling systems, holding two or even three slots on the motherboard. As a consequence, it is impossible to establish a system with a second video adapter card or other device that uses an expansion slot PCI-Express x16.

Against this background, this sensational sounds message that the company's Galaxy managed to create the first (and so far unique in the world) video card GeForce GTX260 +, which occupies only one slot on the motherboard. As can be seen in the photographs, the cooling system video Galaxy GTX260 + is really very thin, but, according to experts, efficient enough to cool it sufficiently powerful adapter. This technology is applied evaporative cooler chamber (Vapor Chamber), based on almost the same principles as and thermal tubes. Evaporation chamber consists of three separate layers - transporting, vaporizing and condensing. Inside the chamber is water, warmed up the heat emanating from the GPU and other hot zones of the video card. The liquid in the absorbent layer carries evaporates, removing heat from the adapter, and the resulting steam turns back into water in the condensation layer. It received water flows back to the transporting layer, making it renewable.

Due to the small thickness of the cooler is the distance between layers is minimal, therefore, a continuous process of evaporation-condensation of the liquid passes at high speed. This ensures the high efficiency of this technology. However, the timing of a sale of a single-slot graphics card Galaxy GTX260 +, as well as its value remains to be seen.
