Video Card


The HIS version of the card doesn't really show us anything we haven't seen from the model before. With that said, this is a really nice cooler which carries with it the same overall design as the higher end models, albeit just shorter.




HIS has of course added their own flair to the model, which includes a HIS sticker on the fan. The left of the card is taken up by another sticker which shows us a picture of the sword and tells us the model, while giving us the HIS logo again and the ATI one.




The HD 5770 carries with it a single 6-Pin PCI-E connector and much like the HD 5850 it sits in one of the rear vents. How it differs is that it sits more recessed, which can make it a bit of a pain to plug and unplug. Really, though, once you've plugged the connector in you shouldn't be touching it again anytime soon.




Across the top of the card we have our two CrossFire connectors; the good news is we're going to be making use of these. Hopefully we see some good performance from the setup when we team it up with our other HD 5770.




In the I/O department we can see that there's a fair bit going on. We've got two Dual-Link DVI Connectors, HDMI and DisplayPort. All these connectors mean we've got Eyefinity support which gives us the ability to run up to three monitors off the one card.




Like the rest of the card, there isn't really anything outside the norm when it comes to the clocks. This means the core comes in at 850MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 carries with it a very healthy 4800MHz QDR clock.
