Having a look at the card you can see we've got a dual fan design. You can see behind them we've got a heatsink that takes up majority of the card, and you can also see some hints of the copper heat pipes that are included to help draw the heat away from the core.
Taking a look around the Gainward GTX 650 Ti Boost shows us a single 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back of the card. Closer to the front we see a single SLI connector, which we'll of course be making use of today.
The connectivity side of things sees two Dual-Link DVI connectors in the form of a DVI-D and DVI-I. We've also got a HDMI and DisplayPort connector to round things off. You can also see a vent that takes up half of the top, allowing hot air to escape straight out the back of your case.
As we mentioned earlier the Gainward GTX 650 Ti Boost Golden Sample comes overclocked out of the box and carries the same clock speeds we saw on the Palit video card. This means the core is bumped to 1006MHz or 1072MHz via Boost. The 2GB of GDDR5 has also been slightly increased to 6108MHz QDR.
As we mentioned earlier, because we know that the performance of this overclock is similar to the reference cards, we knew that SLI wouldn't see much difference either. Because of that we've decided to overclock the cards ourselves today. Looking above you can see we managed to push the core up to 1120MHz, while the 2GB of GDDR5 has been pushed to 6900MHz QDR on both cards.
