The Aeolus 7800GTX graphics card is quite impressive upon a first look. The Heatsink, seen in the photo below, is quite stylish, though no fancy flashing blue lights are present. The whole cooling system ensures low temperatures under heavy load, which is a promise kept by the Aeolus 7800GTX as we will see later on.
After removing the plastic heatsink cover, we can take a look at the metal fin design of the cooling system, which provides efficient heat dissipation leading to more effective cooling.
As with all latest generation cards, the 7800GTX requires an on-board power cable, which goes in the connector located at the front end of the card.
Here we can see a photo of the connections provided on the 7800GTX graphics card - 2 x DVI and one Vivo (HDTV) port is more than enough.
Now lets move to the next page where we cover in detail, our graphics card testbed.
