Radeon X1950 XTX gets new cooler

Dual-slot to make things quieter

ATI'S RADEON X1950 XTX and the Crossfire edition of that card are to get new cooler. Too many people were objecting about the noise of the cooler and ATI finally listened to them and redesigned the cooler.

Our first information indicates that the cooler will be very much like the Arctic cooling you can find on HIS Radeon X1900 cards.

This one is already more efficient than the current ATI one and we wrote about it back at Cebit. You can read that here. As a prototype, it cooled the chip to nine degrees Celsius below its rival.

Just to confirm, it is still a dual-slot cooler and the cards are expected in middle of next month, with GDDR 4 on board, of course. µ
