VGA card and motherboard manufacturer EVGA has announced a new watercooled GeForce 7950GX2.

The cards, which feature an Innovatek waterblock designed to fit the double-PCB of the 7950GX2 cards, operate at a 600MHz core and 1.4GHz memory clock, giving them a performance advantage over most stock cooled 7950GX2s.

According to the managing directory of EVGA, Hans-Wolfram Tismer, "The BlackPearlTM water cooling reduces the core temperature of each GPU by over 20˚ C also significantly improving the system’s stability."

Two of these cards can be run in quad-SLI if you've got the money and inclination to do so... oh, and the space for all that piping! The watercooled BlackPearl version of the e-GeForce 7950GX2 will weigh in at €899 when it arrives mid-august.

Reduces the core temperature of each GPU by over 20˚ C,…. cool.
I wonder how these would perform against the maze4's?
Tempting…

I'll be looking into Quad SLI when nvidia have the drivers out. Be nice to cool them with water like that. I'm impressed.
