The Video Card
With no package all we're going to be looking at the card and as you can see below, there's nothing that we didn't see with the Sapphire version of the card, albeit the lack of a sticker on top of the cooler.
If you want a full run down on the card, we recommend that you head over and have a closer look at the Sapphire card. But for a quick rundown, you've got two GPUs on a single PCB. The card requires an 8-Pin and 6-Pin PCI-E connector instead of the dual 6-Pin setup seen on the HD 5870. There's only a single CrossFire connector due to the reason that a maximum of only two of these cards can be installed at the same time.
In the I/O department there's two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a Mini DisplayPort. In the event you don't have a Mini DisplayPort connector, it looks like all ATI partners will be including a DP to Mini DP convertor.
It comes as no surprise that the reference ATI model carries with it the default clock speeds. What this means is that the core comes in at 725MHz while the 2GB of GDDR5 carries with it a clock of 4000MHz QDR.
Looking across the bottom, you can clearly see that we have CrossFire enabled and four GPUs are up and running. Now we just have to cross our fingers that there's some significant performance increases in store.
