We've almost filled up the gaps we need with the release of the HD 5770 Vapor-X. As usual it's a bit disappointing to see that Sapphire is able to offer us these fantastic cooling numbers, yet when it comes to overclocking, the company chooses to only give us a small bump. In this case we see only the core has been increased and that was only by 10MHz.
There's of course always the option to overclock the card yourself and honestly, apart from that, it's hard to fault the card. The cooler does an excellent job of keeping noise and temperature down, and really, that's what the Vapor-X series is all about.
When it comes to the bundle as well, we've seen that Sapphire has done a good job of including all those normal goodies that we love including the Dirt II voucher. Considering we have also tested Dirt II in a big performance analysis when the demo came out, we know that the HD 5770 is very capable of running the game in DX 11 mode.
As usual Sapphire has done an excellent job with another graphics card and if you're looking for something that's a bit more exciting than the standard model, this is a card you should be looking at.
While the model is going to cost slightly more than a standard cooled HD 5770, at $174.99 over at Newegg the Vapor-X is hardly an expensive card and still manages to offer fantastic value for money.
With good performance at 1920 x 1200, great cooling and noise numbers, there's not much you can complain about when it comes to the Vapor-X version of the HD 5770 from Sapphire. If you're looking for a good version of the model then this is one you should be keeping an eye out for.
