The card sports a "Smart Switch" whereby pressing it on the back of the card and rebooting the PC instantly turbocharges it with a core clockspeed of 775MHz and memory at a whopping 4GHz, up from its usual frequencies of 750MHz core and 3.8GHz memory.

Furthermore, the card sports a 4-phase power supply which is said to help decrease temperatures and provide better reliability, not to mention the superiority of the rather eye-catching full copper based cooler with three-pipes keeping things quiet and extra cool.

The icing on the cake comes in the form of the card's future-proof connectivity options; as well as dual DVI and HDMI, there is also the inclusion of DisplayPort.
