First up, the photo-shoot. Okay, this is the part where we move away from the technical stuff for a minute and move on to the product photo-shoot followed by initial tests on heat, power consumption and noise levels.
We'll start off with the packaging and bundle, TUL always try to do something nice with the package they deliver. In most scenarios they always include a little something extra. Included in the box you will find:
One fine Radeon HD 5770
DVI to VGA Dongle x 1
Crossfire bridge x 1
Colin McRae Dirt 2 download coupon for the full DX11 game
Not bad Sir, not bad at all. The PCS+ 5770 card, this bundle actually, is selling for roughly 145 EUR / 169 USD, including the full game Colin McRae Dirt 2.
So as you can see, here we have the Radeon HD 5770 as supplied by PowerColor. Quite a charming fellah to look at really. Do bear in mind that the power connector does lead out from the rear as well, which requires a little extra space for cabling.
The Radeon HD 5000 series will obviously also be CrossfireX compatible, you could hook up one or even two more of these cards and go really nuts. Typically we however do recommend you to not use more than two GPUs, as drivers wise you'll quickly run into problems, let alone performance scaling becomes very inefficient.
To your right you can see the two Crossfire connectors.

PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 review We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?
