EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX BlackPearl 512MBSince the sample is non-retail, it didn't arrive in EVGA's retail packaging, with a retail software bundle or indeed the final black cooler. However, the cooling hardware supplied was final and complete, and a look at the board itself will show you what it'll look like, even if it's the wrong colour.
The board wears an Innovatek-designed cooler for GPU, memory devices and a section of the power regulation hardware. Being a GTX 512 board there's PCI Express for connectivity, a 6-pin auxiliary power connector, dual DVI ports (one of them dual link), video output ability and SLI connectivity to a second board if you so wish.
EVGA confirm all shipping BlackPearls will, sadly, have the green PCB of their aircooled boards. Black would have rocked. Indeed, it seems EVGA simply take the coolers off of boards that arrive in aircooled, and assemble them by hand with the replacement waterblock.
With nothing to cool on the rear of the board, there's no rear block, just the retention plate and screws to retain the block's mass to the GPU and memory devices round the front.
Out-of-the-box, BIOS-set clocks of 600/900MHz are what define the BlackPearl 512MB from a performance point of view. You can see the clock step (large PNG file, beware), here.
