EVGA launch watercooled, overclocked GTX 260
Ready to be hooked up to a liquid cooling system, the GeForce GTX 260 HC features the Co-op backplate for better heat dissipation and offers no less than 192 Processing Cores, a 448-bit memory interface and DirectX 10(.0) support.
Spec wise, the new card manages to even beat even the FTW Edition due to its higher GPU clock, 684 MHz compared to FTW’s 666 MHz (576 MHz for the stock models). As for the GeForce GTX 260 HC’s shaders and 896 MB of GDDR3 memory, they are set to a frequencies of 1404 MHz (1242 MHz stock) and 2214 MHz (1998 MHz stock) respectively. Also offering a HDTV out and dual-DVI connectivity, the GTX 260 HC is priced at a rather unattractive $499.99.
