At the backside you can spot a thing or two, the Molex connector can be used to get a little more juice into the card. That or it is powering up the memory defroster. Either option however is specific for LN2 pro-overclockers. It is not required to use that connector. A little to the right is a small micro-switch, which allows you to heat up the memory (Instant defrost for LN2 overclockers. Say goodbye to cold bugs) and then there is a safe mode button that functions as a single press VBIOS restore. BTW if you look to the far right then you'll see little gaps in the PCB. These are VGA monitor Hotwire terminals to the solder points on compatible ROG motherboards.
Here we can see the connectors, one full DP, one HDMI and two DVI connectors. So yes, Eyefinity works here perfectly fine as well. It might be a very interesting card to setup a desktop multi-monitor setup this way.
The card comes with TWO BIOSes. One stores a STANDARD reference BIOS, and another one that primes the GPU for liquid-nitrogen cooling-assisted overclocking.
On the edge you can spot the ROG logo, which is reactive to GPU load and displays a GPU load level.
