Not sure if you noticed, but on the front of the box Galaxy made mention that the Razor Edition GTX 260+ is a single slot card. This is pretty noticeable when you look at the card, especially across the bottom where we can see the heatsink pops up only slightly.




The thin cooler means we've got a smaller fan sitting on the left side of the setup. In the middle we can see a heap of copper over the core. The overall design is that the small fan pushes cool air to the right over the copper heatsink to help keep the core as cool as possible.


To be honest, though, just looking at the card we find ourselves quite worried. The GTX 260+ has never really been that cool of a card so we hope that the numbers we see here aren't too high. The other issue we're also worried about is the noise, as these small thin fans can pump out quite the dB.






Looking around the card, we have a pretty standard setup. At the back we have our two power connectors which come in the form of two 6-Pin PCI-E connectors. Closer to the front we have our SLI connectors which give us the ability to run up to three of these cards together.




Looking at the connectivity side of things, we've got a Dual-Link DVI connector on the right side of the plate, while moving over we've got a native HDMI port and on the far left we have a S-Video port which is something we've been seeing less and less off lately with all the new HD 5000 cards from ATI and even the higher end GTX 200 series.




Looking at the specifications, there isn't anything that should surprise you. The clocks are all stock which means the core clock comes in at 576MHz and the shader at 1242MHz.




The 896MB of GDDR3 of course gets the same treatment with it coming in at 2000MHz DDR. While 1998MHz DDR is considered stock, it's not unusual for companies to bump it up 2MHz to give us that even sounding 2000MHz DDR clock.
