Looking straight on with the video card it's not all that different to other Black Edition HD 7000 series video cards we've seen in the past due to that Double D cooler being present and taking up majority of the PCB.
If we look closely we can see a large heatsink sitting behind the two fans and across the top you can see the copper heatpipes that are going to make sure the video card runs as cool as possible.
A quick spin around finds two dual 6-pin PCIe power connectors at the back while closer to the front you can see we've got a single CrossFire connector which gives us the ability to run up to two of these video cards together.
Finally we finish with the I/O side of things and you can see we've got a to DVI connectors in the form of a Single-Link one and Dual-Link one. Along with that we've also got a full size HDMI port and two Mini DisplayPort connectors to round off the connectivity side of things.
As we've mentioned already, being part of the Black Edition series means that this model is going to carry an overclock out of the box and looking below you can see that the 975MHz core is a strong overclock when compared to the stock 860MHz clock that we see on reference versions of the Radeon HD 7850.
The good news is that XFX has also taken the time to increase the speed of the 2GB of GDDR5 memory. We can see that comes in at 1250MHz or 5000MHz QDR which is slightly up on the stock 4800MHz QDR clock.
Overall this is a nice boost in clock speeds and should yield some strong performance over a reference clocked version.
