Water-Cooled R600 Close-Up & Performance Scaling

We have shown you a pic of the
water-cooled R600
earlier and here are some close-up shots for you guys to
enjoy. We learned that R600 can be overclocked to 850MHz easily on its default
cooler and with this special water-cooled edition, we can expect even higher
clocks. Interestingly, we heard that any core clock increase on the R600 will
scale the performance by much which is why ATi is trying hard to boost the core
frequency higher. In our previous
article
, we told you that NVIDIA has plans to come out with GeForce 8800
Ultra in May to counter R600 but we believe it is just an overclocked G80 and
perhaps using the air/water hybrid cooling solution they conceptualize before.
R600 real performance remains a mystery till now but we believe ATi still have
some chance if they can deliver the products out on time.
