Review: GTX 480 Beast is the fastest Fermi around


FurMark

FurMark is a very intensive OpenGL benchmark for the graphics card. The benchmark offers several options allowing the user to tweak the rendering: fullscreen / windowed mode, MSAA selection, window size, duration.

Increased graphics workload / power draw of FurMark 1.8.0 for all new graphics monsters such as HD 5870, HD 5970 or new GTX 480, leads to less FPS and lower scores compared to FurMark 1.7.0, source oZone3D.net / geeks3D.com

I am curious if it can beat Cayaman. Probably will be on par! (but Cayaman will cost 100 - 200 bucks less for sure)

Does it come with the radiator/water pump, or do you gotta have your own?

Quoting thomasg:

of course not... you have to have that in first place to buy a watercooled edition card. just comes with the plate for gpu. Those alone usually cost a lot. I don't see anything special about this besides a waste of money. New generation is coming out soon. I'd wait for 28nm if going with Nvidia then they could probably do wonders, but they are just stuck right now. Point of View / TGT seems like a great company though I would love to see what they do with next-gen NV cards.

Well it would have been a deal for a whole self-contained water-cooled card. They do make water-cooled cards like that, but if this one isn't, it just isn't worth the price premium.
