PowerColor Radeon 5770 Single slot Quad CrossfireX review -
PowerColor Radeon HD 5770 Single Slot in 4-way CrossfireX
A little while ago PowerColor released a new SKU from the popular Radeon HD 5770 lineup of products; in fact they made an actual single slot version of this card, allowing you to go for multi-GPU setups much easier as it saves a lot of space.
The new cards are clocked at reference speeds as the new single slot coolers obviously have a little less cooling capacity compared to the dual-slot version. Today we'll take a total of four of these cards and see what they'll do setup in multi-GPU-mode, CrossfireX.
See the Radeon HD 5770 as tested today can be purchased for roughly 150 EUR a pop these days, three of them with one Gigabyte of graphics memory each could open up a can of performance, easily beating the most high-end CPUs. But as always one question arises: how does CrossFireX with the Radeon HD 5770 really scale anno September 2010? Well, to find that out we requested four of these cards from Power Color to see what happens.
Meet the Powercolor HD5770 1GB GDDR5 Single Slot graphics card. Each Radeon HD5770 is clocked at 850MHz, has a 1GB memory partition running at 1,2GHz (x4 Quad data rate gDDR5) over a 128 bit memory bus. Each card comes with a Display Port, DVI-I and HDMI allowing much flexibility monitor wise.
Have a peek of the quadruple lovin lovah we're testing today, and then let's head onwards to the 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 ?
PowerColor 7790 TurboDuo OC review
We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7790 TurboDuo OC edition incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming. The PowerColor TurboDuo HD7790 OC clocks at 7.5% overclocking speed on boost engine, packed with dual-fan cooling and S-shape heat pipe direct touch technology.
PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS+ review
PowerColor is the first in our line-up of R7950 reviews with a customized model. It is the PCS version that clocks in at a cool 880 MHz on the graphics core with it's memory clocked default at an effective data rate of 5000 MHZ. Armed witha custom cooler it is silent, and even cooler compared to the reference model.
PowerColor Radeon 6870 PCS+ review
This is the R6870 PCS+ version where PowerColor pre-overclocks the card to 940 MHz (900 reference) and clock the memory at 4400 MHz coming from 4200 MHz. This should give the card a nifty nice boost.
