Arctic cooling passively cools RV570


PowerColor
decided to introduce one of the last Radeon X1950 PRO cards on a market and the company decided to make a difference.


The company introduced a passively cooler X1950 PRO card running at 575 MHz core and 1380 MHz memory. It decided to use Arctic cooling S1 and this massive passive chunk of metal is able to cool this card, without any noise. The card is equipped with 256 MB GDDR 3 memory and has 36 Pixel Shaders. It also supports Vivo, HDCP and works well under Windows Vista.

This specially designed silent cooler features four heat pipes, special voltage regulator heat sink memory cooling and taller fins. The passive part of the card is huge but there is no any noise out of the cooler. The S1 based cooler doesn’t have any active, moving parts or fans. The temperature stays around 63 Degrees Celsius while the reference cooler can only do 67 Degrees Celsius. The passive part beats the ATI's reference cooling, now that is something to be proud off.  

 
This cooler actually has four heat pipes to help it with a hard task of cooling. The samples are available now and the card should debut at Cebit.
