It's Palits time to attack the GTX 470 with a new cooler. Let's see how well it stands out against the reference design.

Looking at the card, you can clearly tell it's different to the standard GTX 470 with Palit opting for a dual fan design. The card is a dual slot one and hopefully the extra fan will keep the temperature of the model down while not being as loud. Connectivity might be a bit confusing with the addition of a DisplayPort connector. Don't get any ideas about Surround Gaming off a single card, though.

Why Palit would not only delay the release of this model, but also spend the time making a new cooler for it only to then deny it of a factory overclock is simply beyond me. What this means is that the core comes in at 608MHz, the Shader clock at 1215MHz and the 1280MB of GDDR5 memory at 3348MHz QDR.
