The overall look of the Black Edition card is very similar to what we've seen before out of XFX with the dual fan design going on. It's a good cooler that has proved itself a number of times already. Looking quickly around the card you can see we've got two 6-pin PCI Express power connectors up towards the back while closer to the front we have a single CrossFire connector.
On the I/O side of things we've got a typical setup which gives us a couple of DVI connectors, full size HDMI port and two Mini-DP connectors to round everything off. You can also see the sweet XFX artwork here on the I/O panel.
Being part of the Black Edition series mean that the card comes overclocked out of the box. Looking below you can see that the core comes in at 1050MHz which is 50MHz up on the default 1000MHz clock speed we see from reference cards.
As for the 2GB of GDDR5 that's also been bumped up from the stock 4800MHz QDR to a more round sounding 5000MHz QDR. Overall this is a nice bump in clock speeds and should bring with it some nice overall performance.
