We've been provided with additional shots of the upcoming ASUS ROG HD5870 Matrix graphics card. The unit is going to be equipped with a 2GB frame buffer. From the shots of the PCB you can tell it departs from the reference design and includes beefed up VRM. It will be powered by dual 8-pin power connectors. Cooling is provided by a five-pipe direct contact heatpipe with active cooling provided by a fairly thick blower-type fan. We;re looking forward to getting our hands on one of these to test and hopefully we'll see some pricing and availability information soon.
