PowerColor Adds Own Design to the HD 5770 with HD 5770 PCS+

TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphics cards, introduced an upgraded addition into the HD5700 series: the PCS+ HD5770. Part of the award-winning PCS series, the PCS+ HD5770 features outstanding factory overclocked ability with core and memory clocks at 875 MHz and 1225MHz respectively and GDDR5 onboard memory. Memory data transmission rates are enhanced up to 4.9Gbps, easily boosting gaming performance.

The PCS+ HD5770 also features an ultra quite 92mm cooling fan which is made of a low-noise impeller, easily dissipating heat from the copper base that fully covers the GPU at lower fan speed and efficiently cools down the temperature up to 10°C compared to that of reference board design. This allows more headroom for overclocking giving gamers maximum performance of their rig.

DiRT2 Game Bundle: Unleash DirectX 11 gaming power
To maximize the DirectX 11 technology, PowerColor includes the latest DiRT2 into PCS+ HD5770. DiRT2 is a world tour of adrenaline-fuelled extreme off-road events in stunning real-world locations. With the support of DirectX 11 technology, this latest game delivers the most realistic, immersive and exhilarating racing experience to gamers.

“The PCS+ series is designed to fulfill the toughest gamers’ need,” said Ted Chen, CEO of TUL Corporation. “With factory overclocking and superb cooling ability, the PCS+ HD5770 will surprise all gamers—you’ll know that quiet, cool and gaming performance can co-exist without compromise.”

The PowerColor PCS+ HD5770 is compatible with the latest technology. Gamers can take advantage of ATI Eyefinity and DirectX 11 technology, experiences the unbelievable HD gaming performance through up to three displays and easily gets lost in the game; with support of ATI stream technology, the PCS+ HD5770 brings the best productivity through accelerating the daily application, enhance the working and entertaining efficiency.

The PowerColor PCS+ HD5770 will be available on Dec. 18th.

Sounds like a good game, so long as it has chicks, brawls and mayhem! DiRT69 already sounds so much more interesting! ;)

Did they shorten the PCB too or is it my eyes?

I'm pretty sure that is a short version of the pcb since I have an accelero l2 on my short version 4830 and it takes up about the same space as it does on this 5770

there is such a high demand for ATi cards on the market - but ATi cant supply them.... wasted oppotunities. they need to open up another plant & get the ball rolling

its almost an invitation to go green camp because all of ATi's high end cards are so hard to get.

So are you willing to wait for fermi? (Where are you little fermi, come out from hiding and face the Big Red and Dark Monster) At least when the RHD 5XX0 launched majority of the pre-orders got filled, but that left us without standard orders. Probably by January the cards will appear in greater batches. TBH this feels like a Wii Launch. I don't think TSMC was ready for this launch, or AMD didn't expect the boards to be bought so quickly-compared to the sale of the 4xx0 series.

Actually the 5870 does exist, just that Pre-orders were filled and not enough were produced initially, in the next few months we should start seeing refined units that are both stock and 3rd party made.

Is this really new :o It's just OEM version of ACs Accelero L2 Pro with black fin fan and we saw quite a few designs based on same cooler by Sapphire on HD4670 512MB GDDR4 PCI-E (HDMI version) for first time and then followed by HD4670 512MB GDDR3 "New Edition", HD4670 1GB GDDR3. On at least one VTX3D card (TUL brand) HD4670 1GB DDR3 and their AGP counterpart HD4650 1GB DDR3.

Twelve of their own (Powercolor) previous card designs
PCS HD4670 1GB DDR3,
PCS HD4670 512MB DDR3,
PCS HD4670 512M GDDR4,
PCS HD4770 512M GDDR5 (V1),
PCS HD4770 512M GDDR5,
and even that poor, overheating, cut down RV770 128-bit design like
PCS HD4730 512MB GDDR5 HDMI,
PCS HD4730 512MB GDDR5,
even on three HD4800 designs
PCS HD4850 1GB HDMI,
PCS HD4850 512MB HDMI,
PCS HD4830 512MB HDMI,
and finally two AGP HD4600 cards (and i don't see much of difference between these two beseide different viewing angle)
PCS HD4670 1GB DDR3 AGP,
HD4670 1GB DDR3 AGP (V2)

And now they gave us another five brand new HD5700 graphics cards based on same cooling solution -- on so praised PCS+ cooling solution
PLAY! HD5770 1GB GDDR5,
PCS+ HD5770 1GB GDDR5,
HD5770 512M GDDR5,
PCS HD5750 1GB GDDR5
HD5750 512M GDDR5.

And i must say i don't see how this is winning cooling design except it's winning busines move when they contracted Arctic Cooling Accelero L2 Pro supplier and have a winning deal.

We should ask happy PowerColor HD4850 customers how are their cards breathing and if they're alive after 12 month of use. I didn't believe that some o people report how PCB is melt and bent under GPU on some HD4850 cards but when i saw this smart solutions i'd say s-hit is possible when you buy hight TDP card as HD4850 and even HD4830 are tha's equipped with crappy cooler that's designed for max.70W TDP not 120W HD4850 kind of loads or 90W+ that HD5770 have.

But it's certainly good for business to sell crap cards that will last as long as guarantee lasts 12-18 month. And then that buyer will go back and buy some other affordable brand frome same corporation as VTX3D or Club3d or go with some other budget solutions that comes and goes as year passes like Peak.

While some solutions like triple-slot bulky AC Twin Turbo on retail card is good as peace of mind and properly cooled card goes, this is simple customers rip off when we see that no other Graphic card company didnt go with crappy cooling like this on 120W HD4850 cards. But hey, it still might be better than that Formula ASUS original design or that HD4770/HD5750 cooler design. But somehow i have more trust in cheap orbs than in those large aluminium bulk solution that also consumes three slots

Uh then go for a beastly single-card dual-GPU solution? We need to make TRUE progress and move away from dual GPU setups anyway.

Cry all you want dude, it is an effective cooling design, another point to make cooling doesnt need to be an exhaust type to keep stuff cool, its the matter of cool air coming into the case that counts.
