The PCB of this card is very different as compared to those reference 7800
GTX in the market. However, physical size remains to be long, similar to the
7800 GTX reference cards. Leadtek had chosen the usual green for the PCB color,
as per usual. The heatsink/fan unit on this card, however, appears to be less
elaborate then the 7800GTX. Spotting a slimmer heatsink, and a small fan, the
heat output for this card is surprisingly low during 3D tests. RAMs are now
placed only on the top side of the card, instead of both sides on the 7800 GTX.
This is how the card looks like right out of the box. As said
before, the PCB is very different as compared to the reference GTXs, especially
on the right side of the card, near the power connector. The heatsink seems had
shrunken on the GT too.
