ASUS mixes up the HD 5770 with CuCore model

Superior cooling + VoltageTweak

Non-reference variants of AMD's 5770 have begun to show up recently and now ASUS joins the party with its EAH5770 model CuCore model.

CuCore refers to the type of GPU cooling used on this card which sports a full copper (Cu) core and base weighing 164.5g. The heatsink itself is also impressive with the use of extra large aluminum fins to assist in better dissipation.

What's a little odd is that while the PCB of ASUS' variant is a little longer than the reference model, only one CrossFire connector is seen. Specs are otherwise run of the mill with the same 850MHz/1200MHz clock speeds on the core/mem and 1GB memory on a 128-bit interface.

ASUS does, however, include its VoltageTweak software with this card to assist in getting a solid overclock should you want to go the manual route. The I/O area is also a bit different due to the dual-slot cooler in which one slot is purely for pushing heat out the rear and the other having DVI-D, D-Sub and HDMI connections.

 

The price is expected to be around 130 EUR, or about 190 USD.
