Like some of the recent HD 5870s we've looked at, GIGABYTE have opted for a new cooler. Cince the goal of this model is to overclock, it comes as no surprise that GIGABYTE would opt for what should be a better cooler than the standard HD 5870 one.
As for the rest of the card, we don't really have any surprises with all the standard I/O connectors and everything else being where it should be.
When it comes to selling the card, the big deal about it is of course the overclock that GIGABYTE offers. We have to say it's nice to not be disappointed either, with some impressive clocks being offered here.
Looking at the core, we can see that's been boosted to 950MHz from the stock 850MHz. As for the 1GB of GDDR5, that's gone from 4800MHz QDR to a really nice sounding 5000MHz QDR.
The 100MHz boost on the core should yield a nice boost in performance, while the extra 200MHz QDR on the memory will just help round it out a little more.
