ASUS Radeon HD 6770 DirectCU Silent review -
Connectivity. I think it is safe to say that we can leave the explanation of single and dual-link DVI behind us. It is good to see how much connectivity this card can deal with. With the Radeon HD 6770 series from ASUS we see three connectors -- we spot one DVI, an HDMI and an old fashioned analog DSUB (VGA) connector.
Let's zoom in a little. So the cooler is based on four thick 8mm heatpipes each leading to the GPU cooling block. Passive is never 100% passive though, as you WILL need some sort of airflow inside your chassis to move that heat away. So make sure you have an air intake and exhaust regulated by a fan -- create some airflow.
At the rear end of the card we spot (photo is incredibly dark though) one 6-pin power connector that feeds 75W to the card. The PCIe bus also delivers 75W.

ASUS Radeon HD 6770 DirectCU Silent review
Today we look at the ASUS Radeon HD 6770 DirectCU Silent edition. An entry level product series for gamers based on a juniper graphics core that still can flex its muscle. The x-factor for this particular product however is that its completely passively cooled, what should be a relatively small card .. ends up like the USS enterprise in terms of size and design.
