The Card




Looking at the card, you can see the cooler's a little different to the Sapphire card we've already looked at. I've got to say that I do love the color scheme that HIS has got going on. The card looks great. Behind the fan we can also see some of the copper piping which helps keep the card as cool as possible.








Looking around the card, we've got nothing surprising to make note of. A single 6-Pin PCI-E power connector at the back of the card, a single CF connector across the top connectivity offers us a Dual-Link DVI connector, Single-Link DVI connector, HDMI port and DisplayPort is resident.




While companies have mixed it up a little in the cooler department, we haven't seen anyone change the clock rates at the moment. That means the core comes in at 775MHz while the 1GB of GDDR5 memory carries a 4000MHz QDR memory clock.




As we mentioned in the introduction, we'll be making use of Crossfire today. Looking at the bottom of GPU-Z and you can see that it's enabled via 2 GPUs.
