ATI Radeon X1950 XTX To Feature Quieter Cooling System

It seems that people aren't too keen on the idea of their graphics card sounding like a jet engine while it's cooling. As a result, ATI is set to redesign the upcoming Radeon X1950 XTX's cooling system, acceding to the demands of its patrons. Right now, all information points to a redesigned cooling system that resembles the one currently in HIS Radeon X1900 graphics cards, the ICQ3, which supposedly cooled an ATI X1900 (pictured here) 10 degrees Celsius cooler than ATI's own cooling mechanism.

The dual slot ATI Radeon X1950 XTX is slated for release next month and will feature shiny GDDR 4 memory. No price yet, though an arm and a leg may be involved.
