BFG Technologies Announces Four New Graphics Cards Featuring Custom Thermointelligence Cooling Solutions

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Lake Forest, IL – (August 14, 2007) – BFG Technologies, Inc. announced today the release of the BFG NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600 GT OC and OC2 graphics cards with ThermoIntelligence™.


“We’ve added our custom ThermoIntelligence custom cooling solutions to our 8600 GT lineup, lowering GPU temperatures up to 18C○ over the reference cooler”, said Dean Brady, Sr. Director of Marketing for BFG Technologies. “This translates into increased reliability and performance for our customers.”

Bigger isn’t always better
Better cooling solutions often come at the expense of space inside your computer, many of them taking up two add-in card slots when installed. The BFG 8600 GT series with ThermoIntelligence fansinks only use a single PCI Express® slot, leaving you with room for other add-in cards.

Quiet by design
Many custom cooling solutions today increase the fan speed to reduce temperatures, but this results in excess noise. The 8600 GT ThermoIntelligence fansink was specifically designed not to increase acoustic noise while providing, on average, an 11C lower GPU load temperature. For users running two graphic cards in an NVIDIA SLI® configuration, the thermal performance improves with the primary graphics card operating at up to 18C cooler.
