The card itself uses the Vapor-X cooling. Not only does it look nice, but in the past it's proved itself as a strong cooler. Today it'll be interesting to see how it fairs with our ever growing list of cards that you'll see in the latter pages. As for any surprises, you're really not going to find anything; we've got a 6-Pin and 8-Pin PCI-E power connector, our CrossFire bridges and all the standard connections needed for Eyefinity.

Specifications

On the specifications front the Vapor-X sees a really nice overclock with the core going from 850MHz to 925MHz. As for the 2GB of GDDR5 memory, that's also had a slight speed bump when compared to the reference 1GB model with it now coming in at 4900MHz QDR instead of 4800MHz QDR.
