Hardware.info have published pictures of XFX’s version of AMD’s upcoming Radeon HD 6870. The reference design holds no surprises, and is identical to the previously leaked picture. The card looks most similar to the Radeon HD 5850 – dual slot cooler with a similar length of around 9.5″. The smooth “Batmobile” contours, however, have been replaced with boxy ridges. Unlike the Radeon HD 5800 cards, the HD 6800 features a single CF connector, enabling only 2-way Crossfire. Two 6-pin PCI-e connectors are provided, though TDP is expected to be around the 150W mark.

At the rear is a rather small exhaust vent, further obstructed by an XFX cast. The display outputs are as expected – 2xDVI, HDMI and 2xmini-Displayport.
