Four Radeon HD 5870 video cards under nitrogen cooling

It seems as if there is nothing interesting we could say about Radeon HD 5870, since Radeon HD 5900 is about to be released. But that is not necessarily true because what you are about to see will blow your mind. Below are the images of four exactly the same video cards linked together and cooled using nitrogen. We have all seen the video with cpu nitrogen cooling and it was quite amazing producing outstanding results. This time we are turning to four Radeon HD 5870 cards linked together, here is what it looks like:

Instead of original cooling fans these video cards received full nitrogen cooling. Thanks to hipro5 overclockers, they were able to accelerate the frequency of the card up to 1242 MHz. Local video memory was working on 1300 MHz. hipro5 used Core i7 975 Extreme Edition processor with only 5333 MHz. All five stages of this test need critical attention because if one fails then they all fail.

hipro5 didn't have to wait for a long time before they scored an outstanding world record 191062 points in 3DMark.
