Looking at the card, there's nothing too out of the ordinary to be honest. We've seen the IceQ X cooler from HIS before, so looking at the card doesn't show anything too different to what we've seen before. We've got that larger fan in the middle and under that we can see the huge heatsink that covers the whole card.
Looking around the card, you can see we've got a single 6-Pin PCI-E power connector at the back of the card. Moving across the top, you can see some of our heat pipes that come out of the core area along with a single CrossFire connector closer to the front of the card.
Turning the corner and checking out the front of the card, you can see our two DVI connectors. Along with that we've got a single HDMI and DisplayPort connector to round off the outputs.
Being part of the Turbo series means that the card comes overclocked out of the box. HIS haven't done heaps with the clock speeds, but they have given a slight bump to both the core and memory.
As you can see, the core has been pushed to 880MHz. This is 30MHz up on the standard 850MHz clock we see. As for the 1GB of GDDR5, that's also been bumped up to 5000MHz QDR from the default 4800MHz QDR. It's a nice little overclock out of the box and should hopefully yield some good overall performance.
