Looking at the card for the first time we're not really greeted with any surprises apart from again the inclusion if the new iPower tag on the card. Apart from that this is a fairly typical IceQ card. We've got that large heatsink with four heatpipes coming out the back. The fan sits on the right and helps push the hot air straight out the back of the case.
You can see two 6-pin PCIe power connectors instead of the single 6-pin PCIe power connector we see on most HD 7850 cards. Closer to the front but staying across the top we've got a single CrossFire connector that allows us to run up to two of these cards in CrossFire.
Finishing up with the I/O side of things you can see starting from the left we've got two Mini DisplayPort connectors. Next to that we've got a HDMI and on the far right hand side we've got two DVI ports. These are in the form of a Single Link DVI-D port and a Dual Link DVI-I port.
Before we move onto the testbed we'll quickly cover the specifications of the card we're dealing with. As we mentioned earlier this is a Turbo card which means that out of the box we're overclocked. Your typical HD 7850 comes with a core clock of 860MHz while the 2GB of GDDR5 comes in at 4800MHz QDR.
Looking above you can see that HIS has boosted the core clock to an even 1000MHz. As for the memory that's the same at 4800MHz QDR, but remember we're dealing with twice as much with 4GB present, instead of the standard 2GB.
