The Card

Looking at the card, there's not much to see except for the massive cooler that takes up most of the card. The actual design of it isn't a real surprise as we've seen this kind of design on other Ultimate cards. We've got a heatsink that sits over the top of the core and out of that we've got two heat pipes that go off to a bunch of fins that help dissipate the heat. This isn't a really high end card, so there's not a need for a massive passive solution; this should hopefully do a good job.

Apart from the front of the card, there's not much else to look at, so we'll move around to the I/O side of things to see what's going down. You can see we've got three connections here. Starting from the left, we've got a HDMI port, next to that a full size DisplayPort and finally a Dual-Link DVI connector.

 

Specifications

 

Being a passive cooled card, it comes as no surprise that Sapphire would opt to use the reference clock speeds. Quite often passive cooled cards can handle a little bit of an overclock, but with the added heat that is generated it can freak people out a little bit and scare them off.

Coming in at stock means we've got an 800MHz core and the 1GB of GDDR5 memory comes in at 4000MHz QDR. With these clocks hopefully heat stays at a very reasonable level.
