Looking at the card itself, we can see the cooler GIGABYTE has opted for looks pretty mean. We've got a number of copper heat pipes coming out the top and the fan itself is quite large. As for the rest of the card, there are no real surprises here. We've got a single 6-Pin PCI-E power connector at the back and a CrossFire connector at the top. Connectivity is the standard Eyefinity setup which means two Dual-Link DVI connectors, HDMI and DisplayPort.
The card we're looking at today is part of the Super Overclock series which of course means it's overclocked out of the box.
At default the HD 5770 carries with it an 850MHz core and the 1GB of GDDR5 comes with a 4800MHz QDR clock. While the SOC hasn't moved the memory clock, GIGABYTE has bumped the core up 50MHz to 900MHz.
We're not sure if we would call this a "super" overclock, but 50MHz core on a mid range model is impressive. Hopefully when it comes to benchmarking it manages to give us some nice numbers.
