Pulling the video card out of the box we've got a TwinFrozr cooler that we're used to seeing with the black and blue color scheme. We've got two fans and behind that is a large heatsink that has a couple of heatpipes running through it.
Taking a quick spin around the video card we've got a single 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back while closer to the front we've got a standard CrossFire connector which gives us the ability to run up to two of these video cards in CrossFire mode.
Finishing up on the I/O side of things you can see we've got a Dual-Link DVI connector on the right with a HDMI connector next to that. Finally to round out the connectivity side of things we've got two Mini DisplayPort connectors. As mentioned on the large page, it's great to see that MSI have chosen to include a MiniDP to DP connector in the bundle.
Being part of the Power Edition series means that the video card of course comes overclocked out of the box and looking below you can see we've got a 950MHz core and 4800MHz QDR memory clock on the 2GB of GDDR5. While the memory hasn't changed, this is a 90MHz increase on the default 860MHz core that we see on reference clocked cards.
Being a Power Edition card, though, means that we're more interested in what we can do with the clock then looking at what MSI do with them. Looking above you can see our core ended up at 1250MHz, a massive 390MHz over the reference clocks while the 2GB of GDDR5 was pushed up to 6000MHz QDR, a massive 1200MHz QDR over the default clocks!
