Driver-MOSFETs, solid-state chokes and all-solid capacitors.
The card is fed with power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors and features two DVI, two miniDP and one HDMI port on the three-slot I/O bracket.
On PowerColor’s marketing material there’s mention about the fact that its Devil 13 HD 7970 X2 is the “world’s first and only dual Tahiti XT” card.
This could mean that the GPUs come pre-overclocked and that, until now, no other manufacturer has such a design.
