When you have a look at the card you shouldn't see anything that you haven't really seen before. We've got the big black cooler that covers the card from top to bottom and side to side with the red line that runs down the middle of it.
On the right hand side we've got our fan which is designed to help push cool air across the GPU and straight out the back of the card.
Having a look around the card, you will see our power connectors at the back of the card; this is one of the first things you may notice that is different to the standard HD 5870. While we have two power connectors, unlike the HD 5870 which has two 6-Pin power connectors, this model is similar to the HD 5970 which carries a single 6-Pin and 8-Pin power connector.
As far as Crossfire support goes, you can see the two connectors across the top of the card.
The I/O department is where the biggest changes are seen when compared to all the other cards we've seen on the market. We've got 6 Mini DisplayPorts which in conjunction with a Mini DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort connector support up to six monitors.
The Eyefinity6 is essentially a 2GB version of the HD 5870 and for that reason we see the card carries with it the same 850MHz core clock that is seen on the HD 5870.
One of the big selling points on the model is of course the 2GB of memory. While doubled over the standard HD 5870, it does carry with it the same 1200MHz clock or 4800MHz QDR.
