New cooler detailed

During the PDX LAN event, Nvidia's Tom Petersen showed some details regarding Nvidia's upcoming GTX 580 card. Nvidia went and completely detailed the new vapor chamber cooler and the new Alien vs. Triangles tech demo, all on the new GTX 580.

The cooler is quite interesting this time as Nvidia decided to go for Vapor chamber cooling technology and made some quite bold claims regarding the noise output of the upcoming card. The cooler itself is pretty simple, at least if you had a chance to see one of the vapor chamber based coolers, as Sapphire did that a couple of times on its AMD based cards.

According to the slides shown by Tom Petersen, the new GTX 580 is not only cooler and quieter than the GTX 480, it is even quieter than the not so quiet GTX 285. The new cooler should keep the new card well cooled and at around 47dBA in gaming scenario. This is a quite an impressive result considering that Nvidia didn't waste time to point out that this will be the fastest DirectX 11 card.

The new tech demo is all about tesselation, something that Nvidia really wants to be seen. The new tech demo is rendered in real time with tesselation and made by Nvidia team. It will be quite interesting to see this tech demo on AMD's upcoming Cayman cards.

Last but not least, Nvidia also showed the Call of Duty: Black Ops running on its GTX 580 card. Despite the fact that this is one of the upcoming games that a lot of gamers are quite keen to play, the most interesting fact is that it was run on the GTX 580 card and it looks like the new GPU gives a pretty smooth gameplay.
