Photos - The Card
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 4272 x 2848 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D - 12 MegaPixel.
Two GPUs, double memory configuration .. that's a lot of wires and components to mount into a PCB. As you can see, the card is long for sure. I measured it up and it's 27 CM in length. At the front we spot 2xDVI (dual-link thus two high-res monitors are supported) connectors. Obviously you'll receive a HDMI adapter as well which will be able to pass-trough 7.1 Channel lossless sound, too.
When we peek at it from the rear side we can see that length a tad better. It's quite a lot really. However don't get fooled, it's as long as NVIDIA's high-end cards, for example an GeForce GTX 280 is 27 Cm in length as well.
Did you guys already notice something different? That's right ... a black PCB. Traditionally ATI always used a red colored PCB, which quite frankly doesn't fit the high-end products really well. High-end PCs are often pimped up a bit. I really like the black aesthetics here, that is a very sexy look for the card.
The R700 has a metal plate across the back of the card just like the 3870 X2. Quit interesting, it also has RAM on the back as well.
We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?
