ASUS gives HD 5870 based card some MATRIX treatment

And wedges 2GB of memory into it

China based hardware news website Zol has managed to get a number of snaps along with some details on ASUS' upcoming HD 5870 MATRIX Edition graphics card.

the EAH5870 MATRIX is quite radically changed from the reference model with double the amount of memory onboard at 2GB, superior voltage regulators, a much more effective cooling system and of course a big bump in clock rates.

Thanks to the use of a superior VRM circuit, the card can easily reach higher clock speeds and comes clocked at 900MHz on the core and 1225MHz (4900MHz effective) on the 2GB of memory. The card requires 2x8-pin PCI-E connectors for its source of additional power.

At the rear of the card you can see there is connectivity options for DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort, which gives the ability to take advantage of EyeFinity. ASUS will also bundle the card with some of its overclocker-friendly features including VoltageTweak software voltage control and access to a safe-mode button that resets the card back to failsafe mode (in terms of voltage settings and clock rates etc.) should any funny business be going on.

No word on a price or availability as yet, but I'm sure we'll see more on this card come CeBIT.
