Zalman to enter AIB market
Why just cool them when you can sell them
Zalman is one of the biggest names in the cooling industry, but now it seems the Korean company is ready to crack new markets.
According to some leaked documentation and photos, Zalman is preparing to enter the add-in board market and offer both Nvidia and AMD cards. Of course, they will be cooled by the company’s own cooler designs, which should come in quite handy for brand recognition.
Zalman’s first generation cards will be based on AMD 6000 series and Nvidia 500 series chips, namely mid-range models. These will include the GTX 550Ti, GTX 560 and 560Ti, and on the AMD side it will offer HD 6800 cards. No word on Southern Islands or Kepler products at this point.
In any case Zalman plans to show off its first cards at CES 2012 in January, so wish them good luck.
