Occasionally I'll have a sample that slips through the cracks; the HD 5770 SOC from GIGABYTE is one of those cards. When I first heard about the model I was looking forward to testing it. Combine the SOC series from GIGABYTE which we love, along with the HD 5770 which carries with it some excellent value, and we thought surely we're onto a winner.
Unfortunately the model just seemed to arrive at the wrong time, though. It then kind of got pushed back behind some other products and forgotten about. During a bit of a cleanup it managed to rear its face again and it was time to get it straight into the testbed to see what the model was capable of.
The first thing we'll do is have a look at the bundle GIGABYTE has put together. Once we've done that we'll have a closer look at the card itself, the cooler GIGABYTE has opted for and the clocks GIGABYTE decided on. We'll then figure out if those clocks make the model worthy of the Super Overclock name.
Once all that's out the way, we'll get into the benchmarking side of things and see just how the model performs before we wrap everything up. But firstly, as we said before, let's check out the package that GIGABYTE has put together.
The box design is very similar to other SOC cards we've seen in the past from GIGABYTE. It's good as it really lets us identify the model immediately. Inside we haven't got a whole lot going on; we've got a manual and driver CD along with a dual Molex to 6-Pin connector, DVI to VGA connector and CrossFire bridge.
