We have already had two leaks detailing AMD’s upcoming Hawaii and Oland GPU and surprisingly a third leak has appeared which reveals the very first pictures of AMD’s mid-range Curacao Pro graphics card. The Curacao chip would be replacing the current Radeon HD 7800 ‘Pitcairn’ based GPUs and would arrive in two variants, the XT and Pro.

Couldn't stop myself from posting this, this cooler is too damn good. tongue.gif

is it trying to draw air in or push it out from those three vents on the end, if its pulling in, one of them is coming directly off where a heatsink would be on most motherboards....and if its blowing out, its blowing hot air right onto the motherboard.

I don't think it looks bad at all.

I love censorship.

errr..

I guess this means this generation of GPUs from AMD wont run hot? - or atleast the 78xx equivalent?

There can't be much surface area in there!
