Video Card

 

Looking at the card, you can see the cooler is exactly the same as the HD 5750 Vapor-X model which we looked at recently and it managed to do a good job of keeping the card nice and cool. We can see that Sapphire opt for quite a large fan here which is one of the biggest reasons we saw the cooler perform so well.

Sitting on top of the fan, we have a Sapphire sticker and to the right on the shroud covering the fan and heatsink we have another sticker that gives us the model and also makes note that the card is part of the Vapor-X series.

Going for a quick look around the card, we have a single 6-Pin PCI-E power connector at the back of the card while closer to the front we have two CrossFire connectors if you want to run a few of these cards together.

Looking at the connectivity, we see that typical HD 5000 series setup which gives us two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a single HDMI and DisplayPort connector. This layout of course gives us the ability to run up to three monitors using the DisplayPort and two other connectors.

 

Specifications

 

As usual, Sapphire has given us a small bump which is something we see quite often with the Vapor-X series. Looking below, we can see that the core has been bumped ever so slightly to 860MHz from the standard 850MHz.

As for the 1GB of GDDR5, that hasn't been touched with the model carrying with it the same 4800MHz QDR clock.
