The Card


Moving the package out the way and getting onto the card we have an aftermarket cooler, but nothing too exciting. It manages to not only take up an extra slot when compared to the standard cooler but also has no direct contact with the memory modules.



The good news is being a bigger fan it should be quieter and it looks like it's going to be more than capable of cooling the core thanks to the relatively good design.



Doing a quick sweep of the card there really isn't anything out of the ordinary, we have the standard extra power connector that is needed to power the card along with the SLI connector across the top of the card.




Finally moving over to the I/O department there is again nothing out of the ordinary, two DVI connectors of which both support Dual Link connectivity and the normal S-Video out port for making use of TV-Out. While the card does extend over to the next slot we still only have a single slot bracket.


Out of the box the card carries the standard 675MHz core and 2000MHz DDR memory clock, if you want to get more you'll have to use some overclocking software. While Biostar include V-Ranger in the package we would recommend that you venture over to ATI Tool thanks to its superior artifact detecting process.
