So it's time to have a closer look at the products. Below you can spot the packaging of the Radeon HD 6970 IceQ edition.
Here we can see the bundle. The card comes with a factory overclock at 900 MHz on the graphics core where the memory is clocked at 5600 MHz effective. This board is equipped with a massive 2GB framebuffer partition, GDDR5 256-bit.
Along with the bundle comes a driver and installation guide, driver CD, PEG power converter, a VGA/DVI dongle and a Crossfire bridge. Oh yes, a graphics card is included as well ;)
The card comes with a shocking two DisplayPort 1.2 connectors, two DVI connectors of which one is single (up-to monitor resolution 1920x1200) and the other dual-link (2560x1600 and even higher). We had a problem though, on our 2560x1600 IPS screen dual-link did not kick in. We had to revert to a newer monitor over one of the DP ports. Also present is one HDMI 1.4a connector, thus supporting 3D televisions.
So yeah, if you count along with me, five connectors. In theory up-to four can be used in Eyefinity mode with one card, the overall looks of the new ICEQ cooler, well you either hate it or like it. I'm afraid that the majority of end-users will just have raised their eye-browses though.
