The card comes in a bubble wrap bag that includes a label detailing the necessary electrical connection. Always good to have a reminder, I suppose.
Taking our first look at the actual card reveals that it is smaller than many recent generation video cards. While this isn't at the top of the list of high performance models, generally you think of smaller cards as being lower powered cards, and I don't think that type of thinking actually applies here. The front of the card features a black plastic shroud that guides the air from the centrally located cooling fan over the GPU heatsink and the memory chips found on that side. On the back of the card we see four more memory chips, as well as two connectors for CrossFireX.
Taking a look at an end view of the card reveals a DisplayPort connection, an HDMI port, and two DL-DVI connections. You get a great selection of connections squeezed in there, and the left over space is put to use to vent hot air out of the case.
From the other end we see the cooling fan's power connection is made in close proximity to the single 6-pin PCI-E power plug.
In the final image in this section we see an edge view of the GPU cooler. Aluminum fins radiate from the center of the heatsink, and just below these we can see some of the memory chips. While the memory does not have direct contact with the cooler, the air blowing down and across them should help maintain safe temperatures.
