Checking out the card you can see we've got a mean looking dual fan setup going on and you can see we've got a really nice heatsink sitting behind it. Looking through the fans and at the bottom of the card we can see the copper heatpipes that are making their way throughout the card.
Taking a quick spin around the card we can see towards the back we've got the typical dual 6-pin PCIe power connector setup while closer to the front you can see we've got a single CrossFire connector which lets us run two cards in CrossFire.
Finally we finish off with the I/O side of things and you can see we've got a Dual-Link DVI connector on the far right with a full size HDMI connector next to that and two MiniDP connectors to round off everything.
Having a look below we can see the main specifications that are on offer from the Sapphire HD 7870 2GB OC. Being an OC model of course means that we've got an overclock out of the box and you can see that the 1050MHz core is slightly up on the default 1000MHz core clock.
As for the 2GB of GDDR5 memory, that's also been bumped up as we see we've moved from a 4800MHz QDR clock to a more rounded 5000MHz QDR. This isn't a huge overclock overall, but a nice little bump in both areas that should help bring with it a little bit of extra performance.
