Essentially, this is a couple of 5850 cards on a single PCB.
Note that the PCB length is 305mm. Also note the housing width -- a motherboard must have enough space behind the x16 slot and the adjacent slot as well.
This card features its own audio codec, so nothing else is required to output audio to HDMI.
This card has one 8-pin and one 6-pin supplementary power connectors.
This card can work with three monitors simultaneously.
Maximum resolutions and frequencies:
- 240 Hz maximum refresh rate
- 2048 x 1536 x 32bit @ 85Hz Max via analog interface
- 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz Max via digital interface (all Dual-Link DVIs)
The HDTV review is available here.
We thank Gigabyte for the provided graphics card.
