    LOL all it is is a big slab of copper with I'm guessing an 80mm fan and a piece of plastic for a shroud. Shouldn't be too loud at all.

    Maybe we'll never know. VR-Zone have this picture of Leadtek's 6800Ultra from the launch:

    And not one of you has seemed to notice the NIC on the card. Personally I find this a little odd and can't quite wrap my finger around why you would want a NIC on a GPU...

    I still don't see the NIC.

    If you read a little bit in the blurb, you'll notice that it's only 30dB. That's pretty darned quiet. I suspect it's big in order to reach that small noise level.

    I don't know, but these huge and rediculous cooling solutions don't seem so bad this time around. Depending on the overclockability of either the R420 or the 6800U, I'd like to see some high-end water cooling + peltier solutions. :) That'd be sweet.

    Maybe the NIC is on the card to stop people whinging about a 2 slot cooling solution?

    It's not a NIC... They're the frame-lock (RJ-45) and genlock (BNC) connectors for the QuadroFX 3000G... And the S-Video looking port is actually stereo sync connector, not S-Video...

    Never heard of any of those besides BNC...but I am not familiar with the professional market and we don't see very many reviews of those cards. As for the whole NIC thing that is what someone said elsewhere...I should have known better than to take it at face value.

    The RJ-45 connectors are for networking in a manner. It's used to tie several machines running FX 3000Gs together and syncronize their displays for tiling giant virtual displays.

    And obviously the BNC connector is for syncronizing to external timers for NLEs.

    That is actually pretty cool. I figured that if it was some sort of NIC it would have to have something to do with the rendered images as it just wouldn't make sense otherwise.

    Lol@VR-Zone then, it's from their 6800 Taipei Launch coverage. :)
