Pulling the card out of the box, we can see the big dual-fan design that takes up the majority of the card. On each side we can see some vents, but they don't really do anything more than make the card look a bit meaner.
If you look behind the fans you can see the giant heatsink in place along with some of the copper heat-pipes that help get the heat away from the cores.
Looking around the card, there isn't really anything different to what we usually see. We have the 6-pin and 8-pin power connector pointing upwards while the front of the card gives us a single Crossfire connector in the event you want to put two of these bad boys together. However, you may struggle to accomplish that due to the massive size.
Moving to the I/O department, we can see the massive three slot design and across the bottom we have a dual-link DVI connector, HDMI and display port. Above that we have a single VGA port and some vents and finally above that we have some more vents to help let the hot air escape.
While we can see Gainward hasn't done anything here with the core clock rate, the company has upped the memory 50MHz to 950MHz (or 3800MHz effectively).
As we mentioned earlier, Gainward also has a higher overclocked version under the "Goes Like Hell" naming scheme which has a core clock of 790MHz while the memory still carries the same 950MHz (3800MHz effective) overclock.
