If we rotate the card and look at the backside we can see two SLI connectors offering you to double up your rendering performance if you wanted to do that. Absolutely lovely is the back plate protecting components. BTW the top side has a metal plate as well, as such the card is just incredibly sturdy and will not bend once hanging horizontally in the PC.
In this article we'll also look at performance based on high-end yet more moderate processors and then on the X79 platform with an overclocked Core i7 3960X running at 4600 MHz. Here we see the card as tested today installed on our test bench.
So overall you are going to witness some pretty interesting stuff in the upcoming pages. That's it for this photoshoot though. We need to tell you a tale or two about the GPU and the architecture.
