Zotac opts for water cooled 8800 GT

by on07 November 2007


With better capacitors and memory chips


According to, Zotac is working on a non-reference 8800 GT. The PCB is left intact, but Zotac is going to use different memory and NCC capacitors.

As you can see from the picture taken from, Zotac may opt a water cooling feature. They ditched the Quimonda GDDR3 memory modules, and used Samsung's 1.0ns GDDR3 memory. This card comes OCed to 700MHz for the core and 2000MHz for the memory.

It's still not certain that Zotac will use water cooling on the final product, but we will be sure later in November as the card is scheduled to hit the shelves at that date.
