    Mcw60-4870

    This is a pre-release announcement for this upcoming product due for release early October 2008. The application uses a hybrid water-cooling & heat pipe cooling solution, which is an industry first in the field of VGA cooling. GPU cooling performance will be on par with the MCW60 Rev2 (using the same Pin Matrix Technology). This simple, yet effective design is expected to be reflected in the product street price.

    Great job! Looks like it will be a really great performer. Do you have an ETA for that 4870 X2 unisink?

    Wow, now we're talking. That's really a great idea that encompasses the benefits of both full cover blocks and single die blocks. Great idea and implementation.

    Any news on the new chipset block?

    I hate full-cover blocks. This seems like a great alternative - very innovative

    Is the MCW60 rev2 block part removable from the main assembly?

    Nice innovation I like it a lot. I bet other similar offshoots will follow over time. Nice job Gabe!

    This product is VGA model specific. The biggest difference compared to other solutions is the deliberate attempt to reduce wasted material, while preserving (actually enhancing) performance. This is costing us time to market since it requires more thought and resources, but should allow us to reduce cost of ownership.

    Can this tile be attached to the old MCW60 and can you inform us of the price range that it will fall into? Nice innovation

    Friend: Do you have a spare PSU lying around?
    Me: No why?
    Friend: My PSU just blew up, I think the second 8800GTX might have been too much for it to handle
    Me: what PSU was that again?
    Friend: Antec 480w
    Me:........

    Fantastic stuff, great idea Gabe.

    I take it the ram sinks are somehow connected to the MCW60 block? As you say it's card specific?

    If it wasn't, Swiftech could just design a new plate (the ram, mosfet, heatpipe contraption) for new cards and users keep the same MCW60 part.

    If it ain't watercooled, I don't wanna know.

    water-cooled copper plate is one piece; it covers GPU, memory, and forms a manifold for the heat pipe. Common parts with the MCW60 are housing, hold-down plate and back plate. With the copper plate representing the majority of the product cost, there is little point setting up an upgrade path.

    The key advantage of this solution is specifically to take advantage of the low housing cost (inj. molded).

    oh, and one more thing: no aluminum in contact with coolant. sorry I forgot to mention this detail.

    Please allow me the simple pleasure of letting our competition worry about this for a while

    I know.. it's designed and in production costing phase. This is not something that can be improvised.

    Nice work!

    MANY people who don't like a full block will purchase this, especially when i presume it will be about half the price of a full block!
