Gigabyte Officially Releases Radeon HD 5770 Silent Cell Graphics Card

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards today is pleased to launch the latest in-house designed GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD, featuring GIGABYTE’s own Ultra Durable VGA Technology and silent-cell cooling design. GIGABYTE’s GV-R577SL-1GD is built on the highly anticipated ATI Radeon HD 5770 Series GPU, which utilizes the latest 826 million transistors on 40nm fabrication process and GDDR5 memory. GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD is equipped with Microsoft DirectX 11, ATI Eyefinity Technology, ATI Stream technology, ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU support, UVD 2 and PowerPlay, setting a new standard for HD gaming performance.

The GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD features GIGABYTE’s own Ultra Durable VGA Technology, which can provide outstanding overclocking capability, lower GPU temperature, and excellent power efficiency. GIGABYTE’s unique technology Ultra Durable VGA features 2 oz copper PCB board, Samsung and Hynix memory, Japanese solid capacitor, Ferrite /Metal Core Chokes, and Low RDS (on) MOSFET. Compared with traditional graphics accelerators, Ultra Durable VGA graphics accelerators can lower GPU temperature by 5%~10%, decrease power switching loss by 10%~30%, and increase overclocking capability by 10%~30%. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA graphics accelerator GV-R577SL-1GD can provide truly “high-performance” and “green” graphic card solutions.

In order to satisfy the individual needs of home theater enthusiasts alike, the passively cooled GV-R577SL-1GD features GIGABYTE’s Silent-cell cooling design with 4 High-performance heat pipes and 2 additional fins to increase surface area for better cooling and heat dissipation. GV-R577SL-1GD is comprised of 4 high-performance heat pipes which are connected to the ultra-huge copper base plate. By adopting ultra-huge pure copper base with 4 heat pipes, heat can spreads effectively from hot areas. In addition, GV-R577SL-1GD enhances the overall cooling capability by utilizing the precision process to deliver zero-interval combination between heat pipes and fins. Furthermore, 2 additional fins increase 52.87% surface area to dissipate the GPU temperature.

The GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD features ATI's latest 2nd Generation TeraScale graphics engine, boasting the power of more than 2 teraFLOPS with 800stream processors respectively. With 1GB GDDR5 memory, the GV-R577SL-1GD provides twice the data per pin of GDDR3 memory at the same clock speeds. Utilizing ATI Eyefinity Technology, every gamer can run up to 3 displays from a single graphics board and expand the field of view across all displays. Gamers can enjoy the ultimate gaming experience with innovative “wrap around” multi-display capabilities with ATI Eyefinity Technology. Furthermore, benefited from ATI Stream Technology, end-user can easily unleash the massive parallel processing power of GPU for physics, artificial intelligence, stream computing and ray tracing calculations, and tackle demanding tasks like video transcoding with incredible speed. In addition, the GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD fully supports Microsoft DirectX 11 for life-like realism and stunning 3D gaming effects. Gamers can get striking 3D visual effects and dynamic interactivity with DirectX 11 support, including features like Tessellation, HDR Texture Compression, Multi-threading and DirectCompute. Microsoft DirectX 11 brings new levels of visual realism to gaming on the PC and gamers can dominate the competition with GIGABYTE GV-R5700 Series graphics cards.

In order to provide the best digital audio/video interconnection between a computer and display monitor or home-theater system, the GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD is capable of outputting DispalyPort signals. The DisplayPort interface can support higher resolutions, richer color depth, and increase refresh rate performance, delivering 10.8Gbps of bandwidth over previous generations of connectivity options such as DVI, LVDS and VGA. With added DisplayPort connectivity on the GV-R577SL-1GD, PC gamers are able to play all the latest games on their large-screen home theater displays, providing an audio and visual experience unmatched by any of today’s console gaming systems. Furthermore, the GIGABYTE GV-R5770 Series are equipped with ATI PowerPlay technology for breakthrough power and consumption, maximizing performance per watt by delivering the highest level of high performance when needed and conserving power when the demand on the GPU is low.

is it just me... but from the pictures it looks like the card itself (excluding cooler) is half height... I could be wrong but it surely doesnt quite look like the full height of a normal PCI bracket.

@ Wolf, I see it too and I also went to the site and the http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3402#ov 5750 looks more full height than this card
+1 on that 5750, if nothing else the PCI bracket makes it look like that, it looks like DP/HDMI/DVI, where a normal height bracket could use 2xDVI and a HDMI/DP...

I'm keen on a review to get a proper look at this card. also to see temps from a fully passive 5770 would be very interesting.

A review would be nice, I'm curious about temps to as this would be GOOD overkill for a HTPC.

It is a full hieght card. I think the length of the cooler along with maybe a little distortion on the image aspect ration makes it look odd, but it is definitely a full hieght card.

A DVI connector, an HDMI connector, and a DP connector will not fit on a half hieght bracket. Nor will 2xDVI and a HDMI/DP, they would have to use mini-HDMI(like nVidia does) or mini-DP. This is why the common configuration for the HD5000 series cards had the DVI ports stacked and the HDMI and DP connectors next to eachother.

lol I really should have known that considering I've owned a 5870 and 5850, and spent a lot of time gazing at my rig hahahah

still like you say it does look a bit odd...

Any clue on the cost ($200-ish?) and/or any retailers selling it yet?
