Let there be light

Zotac GPU Block CES

Waterblocks aren’t overly interesting, not outside of their function, anyway. But with so many parts of a build getting blinged out by manufacturers, it was only a matter of time before a company gave the same treatment to a waterblock. That company is Zotac.

Inside Zotac’s booth at CES, we had a chance to see its new LED GPU waterblock. Currently in prototype form, there’s just one color option at the moment (blue), though if this becomes a shipping product, others might be added.

One of the things Zotac is trying to figure out is whether to sell it as an add-on part or bundled with a graphics card. Zotac asked us for our opinion, and we’re extending the question to you, our readers. So, what do you think? And while you’re sounding off, let us know what color option you prefer, in case Zotac decides to offer just a single color.

Zotac also had on display its first PCIe-based NVMe SSD. According to Zotac, it can read data at 2,500MB/s and write data at 1,200MB/s. It should be available by the end of this month, though Zotac is still trying to figure out pricing.
