GeForce 9900-series cooler pictured
Nvidia’s next-generation GT200-based graphics cards must be close to ready, because details and pictures of them are leaking out at a quickening pace. Yesterday, we had a look at purported mechanical renders of GT200 graphics boards. Today, we see Chinese site PC Online has nabbed pictures of the matching dual-slot stock cooler, which looks half-way between what’s on current GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB and GeForce 9800 GTX graphics cards.
According to PC Online, this cooler will fit onto GT200-based “GeForce 9900 GTX” products that will feature 240 stream processors, 32 raster units, 1GB of GDDR3 memory, and 512-bit memory interfaces. Supposedly, the first GT200 chips will be built on a 65nm process, so the cards will have power envelopes as high as 240W. 55nm GT200 GPUs may follow later on, however.
