XFX Release The Turbocharged GeForce® 7900 GS and GeForce® 7950 GT

XFX have released a new turbocharged version of their 7900 GS and 7950 GT graphics card. It's interesting to note that they have included a passive heatsink on the overclocked 7950, I wonder how toasty that bad boy's gonna get? Feel free to comment below...

Amazing, considering companies were already having problems with the overclocked Nvidia cards.

I think it must be that the marketing people say we can sell so many of these, the engineers say well we can't do that, and then management says well just make it anyway.

Hard to believe that they used a passive cooler for the xXx card, seems like a baaaaad idea. Considering people are going to want to clock it further anyhow, using a passive cooler is going to botch that completely.
