As you could see, the new GeForce GTX 280 has an external looks similar to GeForce 9800 GX2 and GeForce GTX 9800, see Figures 5 and 6.
We removed the video card cooler to take a look at the board, see Figures 7 and 8.
As you can see in Figure 7 the graphics processing unit (GPU) is really big. We show a close-up in Figure 9, see its codename “G200-300.”
In Figure 10, you can see the massive cooler used by this video card. As you can see it uses a big copper base, which is connected to the cooler aluminum fins by copper heat-pipes.
