WateR600fall: Thermaltake Displays Water-Block for ATI R600

While some sources close to ATI Technologies back in mid-2006 were sure that the company would demonstrate the whole DirectX 10 lineup at CeBIT 2007, even the high-end water-marked R600-based graphics cards were shown behind the closed doors, whereas the RV610 and RV630 were nowhere to be seen.

So while some companies are demonstrating a new demo with Ruby, the others were able to show an improved cooling system for the product expected to be released this spring.

Thermaltake, the company which has been offering easy-to-use liquid cooling systems for graphics cards running ATI Radeon or Nvidia GeForce graphics chips for nearly two years now, plans to release its TMG AT L.C.S. 4 cooler for the R600 as soon as the appropriate graphics cards hit the market.

Representatives for the company are tight-lipped about thermal performance of the cooler, the water-block itself does not look much different when compared to L.C.S. 4 for Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX graphics boards, therefore, we can expect that the R600 will have more or less similar power consumption with the G80.
