Video Card


Having a look at the card now, we can see that HIS has of course added their own sticker to the card to let us know what brand and model it is. Across the middle we've got a red strip with the fan on the right side where HIS has again added their own sticker.






At the back of the card we have our two vents which have quickly become known as the batman vents which resemble the vents of the front of the original batmobile. I've actually heard a few people say that these don't do anything for airflow, but the numbers we got from the second card when running CrossFire X tends to make us think they're helping the card in some way.






Above these vents we have our two power connectors which come in the form of two 6-Pin PCI Express power connectors. Staying across the top and moving closer to the front we have our two CrossFire connectors which give us the ability to run up to three cards in CrossFire X, which is something we'll be looking at soon enough.




Looking at the front of the card, we have a little vent in the top half of the card. Next to that we have a Dual-Link DVI connector while below that we have another of the same connector. Moving to the left, we have a native HDMI port and next to that we have a DisplayPort connector to finish off the I/O side of things.




As we've mentioned before, the card carries with it the reference clock setup. What this means is the core comes in at 850MHz while the 1GB of GDDR5 comes in at that whopping 4800MHz QDR clock which can be seen below.
