Colorful Plays With Fire, Plans Passive GeForce GTX 680

The card, dubbed the iGame GTX 680, takes NVIDIA’s fastest single GPU and sandwiches it between two giant aluminium heatsinks that are tasked with drawing heat away from the core without the aid of noise-creating fans.

How well it works remains to be seen, but Colorful isn’t taking any chances and includes a total of 20 heatpipes (including the six 8mm-thick heatpipes used in the heatsink-connecting bridge) combined with a massive 240 aluminium fins.

Such an extreme solution obviously eats up a few expansion slots, but there’s no mention of how much the card weighs and Colorful hasn’t yet divulged clock speeds. Heck, whether or not it’ll come to retail at all is a bit of a mystery, but if it does we hope it comes bundled with a decent warranty and a “please don’t overclock me” sticker.
