Asustek Launches Water-Cooled Graphics Card

Taiwanese hardware maker Asustek Computer Incorporated has unveiled a water-cooled graphics card: the AquaTank EN8800GTX graphics board, based on a Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX with 768MB DDR3 memory. According to an Asustek executive manning the company's booth at the Cebit trade show in Hanover, Germany, the AquaTank cards are currently in production and will soon be available. The company claims the water-cooling system helps to keep the graphics chip running 12 degrees Celsius (54 degrees Fahrenheit) cooler than other 8800GTX boards which translates into a performance gain of around 11% percent. Specific information about pricing and availability of the AquaTank graphics card was not available.
