Nvidia and its hardware partners are all about the GeForce GTX 780 launch, but that's not the only thing on tap from EVGA. The GPU maker is introducing a totally new ACX Cooler with a double ball bearing design that's more efficient at dissipating heat than the company's previous coolers. A large part of the increased cooling performance is due to the 40 percent increase in heatsink volume, allowing for a 15 percent reduction in GPU temperatures.
EVGA didn't just pay attention to cooling the GPU, but also the surrounding components that make up the card. The ACX Cooler features a reinforcement baseplate that helps maintain a straight PCB (printed circuit board), which helps lower mosfet temperatures by 7 percent and memory temperatures by 15 percent.
Perhaps the most impressive upgrade is that EVGA is using high quality fan blades that are 700 percent stronger and weigh 25 percent less when compared to competitors' dual fan designs, the company claims. By EVGA's math, that makes them 20 percent more efficient by requiring lower power levels. And that dual ball bearing design we touched on earlier? EVGA says they have a 12-year lifespan.
Here's a look at the cooler on EVGA's upcoming GeForce GTX 780 graphics card:
Stay tuned to this space as we currently have the card in our lab for testing and will release benchmarks soon!
