So it's time to have a closer look at the products. Below you can spot the packaging of the Radeon HD 6970 Turbo edition.
Here we can see the bundle. The card comes with a factory overclock at 940 MHz on the graphics core and the memory is clocked at 5500 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 converters, a VGA/DVI dongle and a Crossfire bridge. Voltage measire cables for DMM and ooh, and let's not forget... a card as well :)
The card comes with two DisplayPort 1.2 connectors, one HDMI 1.4a connector and two DVI connectors of which one is single (up-to monitor resolution 1920x1200) and the other dual-link (2560x1600 and even higher). These are gold plated by the way.
So yeah, if you count along with me, five connectors, up-to four can be used in Eyefinity mode with one card. Small tip - if you have a very high resolution monitor at 2560x1600 and connect your card to the single link connector, your resolution could be limited to ~1280x1024 or something close. Hence you should use the dual-link connector to have the full 2560x1600 resolution available. This of course only applies to the two DVI connectors.
