Connectivity wise for monitor outputs we see a four-fold of connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors. We get two display port connectors (mini), HDMI and one dual-link DVI connector.
The TwinFrozr III cooler we found to be quite average. Pre-overclocked at 1050 MHz the temps during gaming jumped over 70 degrees C (hottest peak temp).
The board's overall power consumption from idle to load is slightly higher than reference. Expect an idle wattage of roughly 10 Watts and, when the monitor goes into power save mode, the card throttles down even lower to 3 Watts. We measured the TDP for the 7870 at roughly 160 Watts for the card tested today.
