The Card


Moving onto the card; as you would expect there isn't a whole lot going on. As the low profile bracket may have indicated, the card is of course low profile. The core is cooled by a blue fan that resembles an old Orb cooler from Thermaltake.

As far as extra little connectors go, there isn't really anything going on. There's no extra power needed for the card, nor are Crossfire connectors present. The only plugs we have are one for the fan and the other for the VGA port.

The I/O department doesn't hold any surprises; we've got a Dual Link DVI connector, VGA connector and a single TV-Out port between the two. In the event you want to use the low profile bracket, you do lose the VGA, but with the included DVI to VGA connector you can still make use of the connectivity.




Looking at the specs department, it's nothing to get excited about. We found ourselves with 80 stream processors, 8 texture units and 4 ROPs. The core clock comes in at 600MHz while the 512MB of GDDR3 comes in at 1600MHz DDR utilizing a 64-bit memory bus. While the model will be available in both 256MB and 512MB form, the particular one we have here today supports the latter.
