    Club 3D unveiled a 'custom-designed' graphics card based on the ATI Radeon HD 5850 GPU, being sold as the Overclocked Edition. The design of this accelerator resembles that of PowerColor's PCS+ series HD 5800 series accelerators, pointing back at its source. The card features a custom PCB and cooling solution which makes some smart cost-cutting in return for out of the box higher clock speeds. The GPU and memory are clocked at 760 MHz and 1050 MHz (4200 MHz effective), respectively, against reference speeds of 725/1000 MHz.

    The cooling system involves a large heatsink with aluminum fins, to which heat is conveyed by four heat pipes. A centrally-located fan blows air on to it. The Radeon HD 5850 GPU is DirectX 11 compliant, features 1440 stream processors, and connects to 1 GB of memory on this card, across a 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface. The display connectivity, we presume, resembles that of the reference design, with two DVI-D, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort connectors. Club 3D is yet to announce its price.

    better design, better cooling than HD5850 reference. I hope they don't charge it too much

    Looks kinda like a gay version of the Sapphire Toxic (older) cards.

    I hate non-reference design. They always cut something important and add some useless features. They added +35 MHz on core but probably they cut off software vgpu regulation.

    nah i dont think so...these cards are preclocked but the best is that they are meant to be clocked higher than the reference ones...
    The PCB is usually quite better...

    Looking at the club 3d 5850 image, it seems a fake.

    At least the cooler look decent. I hate the "turbine" ones. they are painfully noisy.

    Isn't that overclock a bit too modest?

    Neither Powercolor nor Club3D design that hsf. they just ordered it from another company. Like the ones Powercolor use Arcting Cooling hsf, they also labeled it PCS+, so I think the Club3D ones is not fake.....

    but the PCS+ is indeed looking better
