The Card

Looking at the card, you may mistake it for something we've seen before. The good news is you're not mistaken and indeed we've seen this cooler with the Sapphire HD 6970 1GB we recently looked at also carrying it. It did a good job on that higher end card, so it will be interesting to see how it performs on the model down.

Power comes to us in the form of two 6-Pin PCI-E power connectors, while we've got support for one other card with a single Crossfire connector. Connectivity also doesn't hold any surprises with two DVI connectors, one Single-Link, the other Dual-Link, HDMI and two mini-DP.

 

Specifications

 

On the specification front there's no surprises with the reference clocks being seen on the card here today. As you can see below, that brings the core in at a nice round sounding 900MHz.

As for the 1GB of GDDR5, that carries with it the same reference clock speeds which bring it in at 1050MHz or 4200MHz QDR.
