Asus show off its new HD 3850 X3 graphics card at bit-tech office – yes, that’s right THREE 3850 GPUs on a single PCB. How does it achieve this? Using MXM modules and some clever use of heatpipes and watercooling – the cores all face towards the board and the memory on the back is heatsinked.
The MXM modules (two on the back and one of the front) get a pair of heatpipes each which, are then routed down to the cooling block at the end – this cooling block is then watercooled (Asus brought down a Thermaltake 5.25″ bay kit) to take the heat away.
