EVGA 8800 GTX Black Pearl

Video card maker EVGA said today that it will soon release a special, watercooled edition of the GeForce 8800 GTX for the most dedicated of gamers. Nicknamed the Black Pearl, the board replaces the potentially noisy active cooling fan of most cards with a quiet and more efficient watercooling system. The modified design is factory overclocked to the same dramatic 626MHz core and 2GHz memory speeds of the ACS3 Edition card but has the headroom for even higher speeds than its aircooled predecessor, EVGA claims.

Although it uses a double-width mounting plate, the Black Pearl's design reduces the size of the board itself to a single slot and potentially improves airflow. EVGA anticipates shipping the premium card soon for a European price of 800 ($1,037). American pricing has not been announced but should be significantly less. [via The Inquirer]
