Claims 20°C lower temperature

 

Leadtek has announced a new Zalman-cooled 8800 GT card, branded WinFast® PX8800 GT ZL. According to Leadtek's press release, the temperature of the new card is 20°C lower when compared to the Nvidia reference cooler.

The new card is based on Nvidia's Geforce 65nm 8800 GT GPU working at 650MHz, which is 50MHz over the reference clock, and it comes with 512MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at reference 900MHz (1800MHz effective). The Shader clocked 1625MHz, which is 125MHz over the reference 8800 GT clock. These low factory overclock values might result in higher OC, but it will depend on how lucky you will be with your purchase.

Besides the lower GPU temperature, Leadtek claims that this new cooler also gets the lower memory and mosfet temperatures so overclocking potential might be greater then expected. As with the entire 8800 GT series this card also supports DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0. You can check out additional information at Leadtek's product page.
