The folks at VR-Zone have managed to find one and get some very nice and clear photos of the card in all its sleek black glory. Going over some of the confirmed details of the card, it sports 1GB of GDDR3 memory and uses a dual-slot cooler with extra venting points to keep the 65nm GT200 powered GPU happy. A generous 240 Stream Processors and core clockspeed of 1296MHz just screams potential.

It has been ascertained from the photos provided that triple-SLI support is there, and that the card will require two extra connectors for its source of power.
