8 Eagle 7950GT w Zalman Cooler Review

GDDR3 Memory by none other than Samsung – 1.4ns modules.

Instead of Dual DVI output at the rear, what you will find is a single DVI
beside a VGA output, and of course the S-Video output connector.

The back of the card holds an unusually huge number of MOSFETs,
mostly tucked towards the end of the card.

The Core 2 Duo was overclocked to 3660MHz, a very common speed among the Core
2 Duo crowd. It is more and more rare to find people running stock clocks, and
one who do so will probably not be looking at a graphics card with a special
cooler anyway.
