HDTV, Blu-ray and HD-DVD 1080i Video playback support
TEC ( Thermal Electric Cooler) Inside 1> TEC freezes ASIC by electric controlling, not only fan cools the ASIC (ASIC remains at 64°C while O.C core/memory clocked to 681Mhz/1.62Ghz). 2> Reliability: normal life span even O.C
Overdrive by ATI control panel 1> Monitoring: utility to monitor ASIC temperature. 2> OverDrive: utility to manipulate core and memory clock. 3> Autorecovery when clock out of range.
Overclockable : Performance increased at least 15%. Memory/core increased at least 20%.
Quad Heatpipes : Most efficiency cooling system. Two heatpipes for ASIC cooling, another two heatpipes for ‘TEC” cooling.
Dual 8 cm fans : Ultra dual big and quiet fans (below 20db) controlled by thermal chips.
High CP value : Most cost-effective product for enthusiastic and powerful user
HDMI video : HDMI compatible through dongle.
