Having a look at the video card for the first time it wouldn't be hard to mistake it for a HD 5800 series card with it using the exact same cooler design. The biggest difference, though probably not so noticeable here, is the length of the cooler and card itself.
In typical fashion we can see Sapphire have added its own sticker on the cooler, like the HD 5800 series the overall design is pretty similar with the picture of the girl being different and it saying HD 5770 instead of HD 5850 or HD 5870.
The back of the cooler has the same vents and inside the top vent we have a single 6-pin PCI-E power connector. You might find yourself thinking the same thing as me, that the connector is a bit deep and might be a pain to get too. Actually, getting the plug in wasn't a problem, getting it out though on the other hand was a slightly larger pain in the butt.
Moving to the top of the card and closer to the front we have two CrossFire connectors. We're not sure if they're something that you'll find yourself making use of, but in the event you find yourself wanting to, you'll be able to hook up three cards in a CrossFire X configuration.
In the I/O department we're seeing the same thing as we've seen in the HD 5800 series, two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a HDMI and DisplayPort connector. This setup allows for EyeFinity support, which means we're able to have three monitors run off this card.
Looking at GPU-Z, you can see there isn't a whole lot being shown, what we can tell you about the card is that the core comes in at 850MHz, in the memory department the card is packing 1GB of GDDR5 that comes in at 1200MHz or 4800MHz QDR.
