  1. Innovision sent us a few pics and details on their Inno3D Tornado GeForceFX videocards that should be available from retail stores soon. Hopefully we will have the opportunity of testing some of these cards in-house, too, the photos below correspond to FX 5200 & 5600 models.

    Interesting to see that the budget priced FX5200 will use passive cooling only, also Inno said they plan on bundling the full version of Comanche 4 from Novalogic, FutureMark's 3DMark03 benchmark, WinDVD Player and Creator (suppose that depending on the model you get) and a 5 game demo CD that includes Delta Force-Black Hawk Down, Ghost Recon, Red Faction, Vietcong and Serious Sam 2.

    why does Nvidia put that huge 'dust blower' on the card when the can stick a small fan on like above?

    These are the mainstream models of the GeForceFX chip that run at a lower clock speed than the 5800 Ultras shown by launch time.

    As Julio said, these are the mainstream models and run at lower clock speeds. You are obviously thinking of the 5800 Ultra, not the 5600 or 5200. With a core clock at 500MHz, A LOT of cooling is required.

    Is anyone else amused at the choice of including 3D Mark 2003?

    Hehe

    I kinda doubt they asked Nvidia for advice on which programs to include :D

    Hmmm... who knows, perhaps they will include a 'tweaked' version of Detonator drivers, too :D just kidding. Like I said I will probably get one or two of these cards to test soon.

    Juilo, Do you get to keep the cares after you tested them?

    Most of the time we all keep what we review, with a few exceptions.

    Geforce FX5200 Ultra = 325/650MHz
    Geforce FX5600 = ???/???
