The Card

 

With the package out the way, it's time to move onto the card and instantly you think that it feels a bit girly. While we may have a picture of a woman in some battle gear taking up a large chunk of the card, it's hard to miss all the pink flowers that are going around the outside.

Apart from this, we have an ASUS sticker that sits on the fan. Like all HD 4870s we've looked at, the card does use the standard cooler which of course manages to take up the majority of the card.

Looking around the card, there isn't anything out of the ordinary. Towards the back of the card we have two 6-pin PCI Express connectors. Running across the top of the card, we have our two Crossfire connectors if you want to run two or three of these cards together.

Finally moving to the I/O side of things, following the whole reference design of the card we don't have any surprises here. Alongside our vents that let the hot air escape, we have two Dual-Link DVI connected with a single TV-Out port sitting in between them.

 

Specifications

 

Being a TOP model, as mentioned earlier the card is of course overclocked out the box. ASUS has increased the core from 750MHz to 815MHz. The memory clock has also been increased from 900MHz (3600MHz Data Rate) to 925MHz (3700MHz Data Rate).
