Looking at the card, you're not going to see anything that you haven't really seen before with the Windforce cooler having already been spotted on a few other GIGABYTE cards. A quick look around the card also doesn't yield any surprises; we've got a single 6-Pin PCI-E connector, Crossfire connector and connectivity is in the form of a Dual-Link DVI, Single-Link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.

Specifications

Like all the other HD 6850s we've looked at already, it comes as no surprise that the one we're looking at from GIGABYTE today carries with it the standard clock speeds. Since we know how the HD 6850 performs at stock, though, we thought with the help of Sapphires TRIXX and a voltage bump to 1.299v we would see what happens when we overclock.

I bumped the core up, bumped the memory up, ran Vantage and did that more times than I would prefer to think about. Eventually we ended up with some very nice clocks; 1050MHz on the core and 4700MHz on the 1GB of GDDR5.
