ATI RADEON X850 CrossFire Edition, (256 MB) Graphic Card

Moving to the cards we can see that from the below view that they look exactly the same. Both cards use the standard X850XT cooler and from front on you wouldn't be able to tell which the master card is and which the normal X850XT is.



Turning the cards over we have a similar picture but you can see that the Master Card is a fair bit busier on the back with all the gold caps on the card. Apart from this the same mechanism on both cards are used to hold the front heatsink fan in place.



Moving to the side of the card we can see how the cards differ. The normal X850XT comes with a VGA and DVI port while the Master Card comes with a DVI port and another connector that is used to place the cards in Crossfire mode. We saw the cable on the previous page.



There isn't anything really out of the ordinary between the two cards as we can see.
