Asus Radeon HD 6870 DirectCu
A Closer Look & Initial Impressions
Those who have closely followed Asus' performance Radeon HD products will recognise the box theme of a horse driven warrior backed by a somewhat violent landscape. The design adds an aspect of 3D into the characters, which is fairly nifty; albeit not as interesting as what lies inside...
Don't worry we'll get to the graphics card soon, but first we have some accessories. Aside a manual, Asus persist in providing Molex to PCI-Express adapters for those who don't care for Power Supply Units. Also you will find two HDMI to DVI adapters, which many might find useful when using HDTV's perhaps.
...and here it is. You should have noticed by now that the key difference behind this HD 6870 is it's custom cooling solution.
The graphics card itself is made artifically long by nature of the fan duct design.
There are also four inputs available on the graphics card, consisting of two Displayport and two DVI-D.
Over the page we will discuss the differences behind the EAH6870 DirectCu in more depth.
