DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance around of a Radeon HD 4770, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 4850.
