does this graphics card have the same cooling system as the geforceFX? Or is it as quiet as other normal graphics cards?
Old 04 April 2003   #2
Its alot quieter then the 5800 Ultra. Uses a totally different cooling system.

Same noise level and fansink solution as a GeForce4/Quadro4 class board.

just curious, but does teh fx2000 have the leafblower or no? Original publicity images showed not, but then they mentioned that the cooling system changed.

No leaf blower on the Fx-2000. Its louder then the 1000, but no where near as loud as the FX 5800 Ultra.

just wondering tho, if they're both nv30, how come the geforce fx needs that supernoise leafblower and the quadro doesn't ??

The 2000 FX is running at lower core/ram frequencies then the 5800 Ultra.

and therefor producing less heat, and so needing less 'powerfull' cooling. i get it. thx.

btw, you were right bout the radeon for max.
My was was being bullheaded and bought a dell dimension 4550 with a radeon 9700 pro.

the OGL performance was poor to say the least and the d3d performance was only good when using triangular strips in wireframe. gota admit tho that it pulled an easy 8 million faces in near-realtime in my viewport.

but the entire system is screwed imo. never seen max's 'quick exit feature' so often save the scene : QE, render the scene: QE

unstable as hell if ya ask me
