While the HD 5750 IceQ+ we looked at the other day used the higher end IceQ+ cooler, the HD 5670 uses one of the older designs. We've seen this design in the past and if our old experiences are anything to go by, it should perform well.
You can't see heaps of the card face-on due to the massive cooler. As always, HIS have added their name to the cooler via a sticker. Here we also see the model is part of the IceQ series, as we've mentioned a few times.
Without a power connector on the HD 5670, the only stand out point on the PCB for us is the two Crossfire connectors located at the top of the card. The nature of the cooler doesn't inhibit your ability to use these connectors, so if you want to do a bit of budget Crossfire, the option is available.
Connectivity is offered with the help of a Dual-Link DVI connector, HDMI port and a VGA port. HIS in this case has chosen to drop the DisplayPort connection. While not major for most people, it is indeed worth noting.
Having a look at GPU-Z, you can see that there's no change in clock speeds when it comes to the core and memory clock. This means that the core stays at the same 775MHz which we've seen on other HD 5670s.
The 1GB of GDDR5 remains unchanged with the standard 4GHz QDR clock. While being an IceQ+ model, this isn't a Turbo one so the stock clocks don't come as a surprise. The main thing we want to look at here is the performance of the cooling.
