A Closer Look


The card we have looks pretty basic, and what most people would call “reference.” However, upon handling it, this is one of the nicest reference cards I’ve ever seen. It has quite a bit of weight to it, and most of the exterior construction is either a soft-touch matte finish or metal panels. It looks gorgeous in real life and doesn’t stand out the same in the pictures.

The blower type fan is most likely going to be quite noisy, but it’s bigger than most and may not be too loud. Of course, it’s designed to get the job done most of all, and I’m sure it will.

The Radeon LOGO stamped into the edge of the metal looks great too, and some LED backlights will have it glowing once powered on too.

That lovely soft-matte dimpled finish looks gorgeous. Especially with the shine of the metalwork around the back of the card.

A full-size backplate gives the card a weighted and durable feel. The card won’t flex or bend at all with this installed!

On the back, an LED light switch, which is handy to have. There’s also a GPUTach, allowing you to see how heavily the GPU is being loaded at any time.

Around the back of the GPU, there’s plenty of ventilation. Of course, that’s needed given the blower-type cooler design. Below that, you’ll find 3 x DP and 1 x HDMI to hook up your displays or VR headsets.

Finally, the card comes with 2 x 8-pin GPU power connectors, suggesting it’s going to be pretty thirsty, but we shall see.
