Having a look at the card, you can see that we're dealing with another cooler that we haven't seen before. Unlike the standard HD 5770 cooler, this doesn't cover the whole card from top to bottom. Another big difference is not only the fan, but the placement of it which is now more over the top of the core.
HIS have placed a sticker in the middle of the fan and on the shroud we have another sticker that gives us the brand again along with the model number. Like all other HD 5770s we've looked at, this is a dual slot one and if you look carefully behind the fan you can see the copper heat pipe that is sitting within the card.
While the cooler has changed, the overall layout of the card is the same. The 6-Pin PCI-E power connector is at the back of the card and is a lot easier to get to thanks to nothing covering it. Closer to the front and across the top, we have our CrossFire connectors here.
While the HD 5750 from HIS lacked the second Dual-Link DVI, this one follows the standard design which means we have two along with the native HDMI and DisplayPort connector.
Looking at the clocks of the card, we don't see any surprises. The core comes in at the stock 850MHz while the 1GB of GDDR5 memory carries with it a clock of 4800MHz QDR.
There's nothing too unusual with the whole card, but the cooler looks of pretty high quality and hopefully should yield some good numbers in our testing.
