ZOTAC Unleashes Water-Cooled GeForce 9800 GTX Graphics Card


New ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition delivers high-performance, quiet computing



HONG KONG - Jun. 12, 2008 - ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd., an award-winning NVIDIA AIC, today unleashes its liquid-cooled, near-silent single GPU graphics card - the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition. The new ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition is the staple of quiet computing, delivering the power of NVIDIA GeForce 9 series graphics power with PureVideo HD video processing technology into a virtually silent graphics card.


Cooled by a custom water-cooling system, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition delivers high-performance in DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1 titles while keeping thermal and noise levels to a minimum.
Unlike conventional water-cooling units available from third parties, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition features a self-contained water-cooling system that requires no end-user maintenance. The self-contained unit comes already attached to the graphics card and only requires the user to mount the 120mm fan and radiator module.


"Many enthusiasts seek better cooling performance and quieter operation from their graphics card cooler through third party vendors, but maintaining low noise with high-performance using air-cooling solutions is a hard task," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd. "With our ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition, customers can have the high performance and quiet operation of water-cooling without the hassles of regular maintenance or installation, which often voids the factory graphics card warranty."


The water-cooling system installed on the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition delivers up to 21.5-percent lower GPU temperatures compared to traditional air-cooled solutions. The lower overall GPU temperatures result in a cooler ecosystem for all other system components.


The ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition comes backed by the standard ZOTAC graphics card warranty to ensure users that the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition and its water cooler are guaranteed for long-term use.


In addition to the high-performance water-cooler, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition receives a slight performance boost through higher clock speeds. Unlike standard NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX based graphics cards, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition raises core, shader and memory clock speeds to 700 MHz, 1700 MHz and 2250 MHz, respectively, to extract every ounce of untapped power from NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GTX graphics processor.


Harnessing the power of NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GTX GPU, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition delivers compatibility with Microsoft DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1 for blazing-fast frame rates in the latest 3D games and applications.


Additionally, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition features NVIDIA Unified Architecture, HybridPower, 3-way SLI, GigaThread, Quantum Effects, second-generation PureVideo HD and PCI Express 2.0 technologies.


Enjoy high-performance and quiet computing from a single graphics card with the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX ZONE Edition.
