Pulling the card out of the box, you're not greeted by any real surprises. Like all the GTX 260 cards we've looked at over the past few months, the ASUS TOP model carries with it the same reference cooler that we've become accustomed to seeing.
ASUS have of course placed a sticker on the top of it; we've got a bit of a camouflage thing going on and we again see a picture of the female warrior that we saw on the front of the box.
Looking around the card also doesn't bring any surprises. Towards the back of the card we have two 6-pin PCI Express power connectors that sit next to an audio out port. Further down the card we find our two SLI connectors that let us run up to three of the cards together.
Finally, we finish off in the I/O department and apart from our exhaust port up the top we have a single TV-Out connector and two Dual-Link DVI connectors.
As we've already mentioned a few times, the GTX 260 we have here from ASUS today is overclocked. The core has been increased from the default 576MHz to 650MHz while the shader clock has increased from 1242MHz to 1400MHz and the 896MB of GDDR3 memory has moved from 2000MHz to 2300MHz.
