With the package out the way, it's time to move onto the card. You can see just how hardcore the cooler is. Thanks to the angle of the photos we can see the heat pipes running behind the fins and through the main heatsink, over the core.
We can also see two more heat-pipes running to the left of the card that go to more fins and exhausts out the back. The whole design is very impressive and when we last looked at it on the 512MB 9600GT we were very impressed with it.
Like pretty much all 9600GT cards we've seen to date, we have a single PCI Express connector located at the back of the card and a single SLI connector across the top. We also mentioned in our 512MB review about how we were impressed with the fact that the GIGABYTEs heat-pipe cooler design doesn't prevent us from making use of SLI.
As you would also expect, we have a single TV-Out port along with two Dual Link DVI connectors on the I/O side of things. As you would suspect with the heat-pipe cooler, it does take up another slot and you can see the fins protrude out the back of the card which helps let the heat out.
As mentioned earlier, the card is a TurboForce one which means out clock speeds are increased. The core comes in at 720MHz, the shader at 1800MHz and the 1GB of GDDR3 memory at 2000MHz DDR.
