Gigabyte Readies HD 5750 Silent Cell Graphics Card

Gigabyte displayed a new non-reference Radeon HD 5750 based graphics card that boasts of being silent (passive cooling) that's also up to 18 °C cooler than the reference active cooler. The GV-R575SL-1GI or Gigabyte HD 5750 Silent Cell uses a large passive heatsink that spans across two slots and is a little taller than the card itself. The cooler is an aluminum fin array to which heat is conducted by three copper heat pipes. Display outputs include dual DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI, and it can pair with any other Radeon HD 5700 series graphics card. The card draws all its power from the PCI-E slot. Like every other Radeon HD 5750 card, it has 720 stream processors, is DirectX 11 compliant, and uses 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface.

Yes, I am curious to see how accurate that temp drop is. I want to see a review.

makes perfect sens to me, this card draws less power, and dissipate less too.

copper pipes helps that's for sure, but again that miraculous 18°c drop is mostly the result of a lesser power consumption

That is a very nice looking cooler. Like the Powercolor "Go Green" it is probably undervolted to lower the heat and power consumption. I wonder if it also has programmable voltage like the "Go Green". Also, the "Go Green" didn't have a power connector but did still have the solder joints if you wanted to add a connector. The price for these looks very good on the egg compared to the "Go Green" as well.

Gigabyte's passive video cards are always pretty solid with custom PCBs, 'ultra durable' parts and a heatsink that really does work. It's just a shame that they always take so long after initial release to put them out :(

Any card that fits on a ATX motherboard will fit on a mATX motherboard. mATX boards have less expansion slots, but the same width of board (in the standard).

ATX is 305×244 mm, mATX is 244×244 mm.

It's need a power from PSU (someone said not, but this one have a 6-pin power plug)

One very nice card, a bit too hot but managed to OC to 850/1265, temps goes up to 105C but with stock settings like 700/1150 remains around 94-950C under load.

A more detailed review (Romanian but you may use Google Translate) here:

Too bad that at least here is priced very close to 5770 :(

I'm using HD5850 on uATX mobo so this one will fit for sure.
