The Card

 

Looking at the card for the first time, we can see that Palit has opted for its own cooler design that we haven't seen before. Towards the center of the card we can see the fan and behind that we can see the aluminum heatsinks. If you look carefully you can also see the copper heat-pipes that are also present.

We can see the rest of the card is covered. It's worth noting, though, that this is only a cover. It's not connected to any of the components on the card and is designed purely for aesthetics.

Taking the time to have a quick look around the card, we can see that towards the back we have our two 6-pin PCI-E power connectors that are needed for the card to power up. Next to this we can also see a white connector; this is used in conjunction with the included S/PDIF loop-back cable so that you can get sound if you're using a HDMI cable.

Closer to the front of the card we can see our SLI connectors. The two of course mean that we can run up to a maximum of three of these cards together. Here we can also see part of the heat-pipe that is sticking out the top of the card.

Looking at the I/O side of things, we can see that we have a VGA connector, Dual-Link DVI connector and a HDMI connector. If you do need dual DVI connectivity, though, it's worth remembering that Palit has included a HDMI to DVI connector.

 

Specifications

 

Palit has decided to bump the core and shader just slightly. We can see that the core is at 745MHz which is 7MHz up from default, while the shader is up to 1848MHz which is 12MHz up from default.

Palit hasn't done anything with the memory clocks, though. The 2GB of GDDR3 memory carries the stock 2200MHz DDR clock that we saw on our Galaxy GTS 250 we looked at recently.
