Zalman is best known for its cooling products, and especially its popular CNPS line of CPU coolers. The company also builds cooling solutions for graphics cards, but why stop there? It's a question Zalman's decision makers asked themselves, and according to a Russian website, the answer they came up with is to try their hand at building videocards as an add-in board partner (AIB).
Overclockers.ua has it on some kind of authority that Zalman is partnering up with HIS to kick out its own brand graphics cards and will start mass producing them shortly. Naturally, Zalman will also use its own coolers on the cards.
Zalman doesn't plan to play favorites and will build both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards. Specific models include the Radeon HD 6870, 6850, and 6770, and GeForce GTX 560 Ti, 560, and 550 Ti. Prototypes supposedly already exist and will be shown off at CES 2012 in Las Vegas.
