If you have a very high resolution Dual-link monitor at 2560x1600 and connect your card to the single link connector, your resolution could be cut in half to ~1280x1024 or something close. Use the dual-link connector, and you'll have the full 2560x1600 resolution available. This of course only applies to the two DVI connectors.
The backside of the product shows that the PCB is not reference either. Make note of the one CrossfireX connector, this card can only be setup in 2-way Multi-GPU mode, anything higher is not possible.
Located at the backside we one 6-pin power connectors. This card only peaks to roughly 130W, so 75W is supplied through the PCIe slot, and the other 75W through the 6-pin PCIe PEG connector. This card will offer great performance per watt. The card is roughly 9-inches long by the way.
One last photo of the product. Quite a charming sight really, but then again we have this entire dark/black/red thing going on in our chassis. Anyway, let's continue with the article, next up is 1080P Video processing.
