Prague, Czech Republic – August 23, 2008 – Diamond Multimedia (www.diamondmm.com), a leading manufacturer of PC graphics cards, sound cards and communications products, launched today, the Neptune line of water cooled Radeon graphics cards. the Diamond Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB – HD 4870 512MB – HD 4850 512MB H2O Edition Graphics card all come with Danger Den & Smoothcreations custom cooling capabilities. These card offers exquisite gaming capabilities combined with state of the art efficiency.
The Diamond Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB – HD 4870 512MB – HD 4850 512MB H2O edition are a family line of extreme performance cards sitting on a PCI-Express 2.0 slot, each water blocked card will be over clocked says, Mario Gastelum, Director of Product Development & Engineering. Diamond is very pleased with hardware tuning we delivered, and the custom water cooling design from Danger Den.
The Diamond Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB – HD 4870 512MB – HD 4850 512MB H2O edition provides plug-and-play ATI CrossFireX upgradeability with up to quad-GPU support. Continuing with ATI’s Power Play and 55nm processing technology, these cards is the fastest, period in their respective category line. We took the same engineering approach from the success of the Diamond Radeon HD 4870 XOC H2O edition and we redesigned the firmware to enable end users to go beyond the normal over clocked speeds and allow them to push their cards for higher performance via the catalyst control center. The GPU’s has been unlocked to push cards to GPU settings beyond the standard clocks. Diamond and Smoothcreations worked closely with Danger Den engineering to ensure we had a robust and high performance water cooled solution that allowed Diamond engineers to push the performance envelope.
