Market of GPU coolers for DirectX10 based cards is growing in numbers, and Zalman has joined the GPU cooling battle with its completely redesigned VF cooler. The cooler looks more than capable of cooling the G80 GPU.
no similarities between VF1000 and the older coolers from the VF series. Zalman
has abandoned its circular design with a new, more efficient one. The new cooler
is now twice the size of the older VF coolers but due its aluminium construction
it isn’t two times heavier.
80mm 2 Ball-bearing fan is moving the air over the cooler at rotational speeds of 1350 to 2400 rpm.
Video memory heat sinks are also redesigned and have nothing to do with small ones Zalman bundled with its older coolers. Now, we are talking of massive aluminium heat spreaders.
Price is yet to be disclosed.
