Formula 1 has been the exclusive performance playground where performance is measured in speed as well as the cubic dollars it takes to develop that speed. Some people have referred to F1 as the pinnacle of racing. Of course, that depends on who you talk to, but nevertheless Formula 1 cars offer many innovations that help the car eek out that last bit of performance, adjustable air/fuel mixtures, driver adjustable wings for added downforce or speed, exotic materials to reduce weight, computerized ignition and tracking systems. Everything on the car is purpose built to help with speed or reliability. Asus has taken a page out of the F1 book with the Formula Series EAH 4770. Innovations to the EAH4770 include the heatsink, fan and electrical components. Will these innovations make the difference in the performance of the Formula series EAH4770 or will they just be around for the long haul and increase the life span of the card? Questions I intend to answer!
The Asus EAH4770 came shipped to Overclockersclub.com in a plain cardboard box with no retail pakaging to speak of so I really cannot offer up any commentary as to what the final packaging or bundle will look like or contain. What was included with the EAH4770 besides the copious amount of packaging material was a small bundle that included a dual 4-pin Molex to 6-pin PCI-E adapter, quick setup guide, driver and software disc and a disc that contains the manual in several different languages. Usually there are several video out adapters included with video cards but if you look closely at the Formula 4770 you can see why there are not any in the bundle.
Let's see what's under the hood of the Formula EAH4770!
