Underneath the cover, we’ve optimized the design around three heat pipes with fins held securely in place with a single die cast aluminum frame.
The cards feature 11 phases for high efficiency, high performance and very high clock speeds.
To further ensure high performance each card features two layers of two ounce copper within each 10-layer PCB.
