Review: GTX 480 Beast is the fastest Fermi around


Metro 2033

This game sees the highest difference between the reference and Beast GTX 480 cards – 16,5%. At 2560x1600, Radeon HD 5870 runs slower than GTX 480 by 58%, whereas the dual-GPU HD 5970 runs on par with GTX 480 Beast.

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.
