    @W1zzard

    Can the uP6201BQ on this HIS design be controlled through software?

    What's with the PCIe 2.0 x8 that GPU-Z is reporting on the overclocking page?

    Excellent review :)

    I have noted in a few reviews the idle current and overall power consumption seems to have drastically dropped with this new ATI series (compared to say the 4870). I think ATI is headed in the right direction with this.

    Awesome review as always Wiz. Looks like these are the bang for the buck sweet spot. I dare say OC'd this thing will do as well as my Asus Dark Knight 4870 1GB model I have now.

    this needs to be compared to the Powercolor 5750 and see which comes out on top, because it seems the OC on the Powercolor is Higher by a few Percent compared to this model

    Why would this be a con?

    It's a 5750, not a 5770.

    But they're not the same card.

    It's like calling a 9600GT ugly compared to a GTX280

    Comparing this card to PowerCOLOR card, they cost the same, but the HIS got only one DVI port
    so which card is better?

    Seems like this thread is old. The lack of a second dvi port on the HIS is a definite con. I was hoping that someone would comment on the noise ratings in this article as all the cards are given much lower fan noise ratings than I have seen in other reviews. I can't believe that this card runs under 26dba at load. Other reviews suggest more like 40 plus dba. I'm skeptical about that sound meter and don't know what to believe.

    Why is it that ATI does a great job of power saving on their midrange and low end cards and shitty job on the high end ones?

    Regarding my post back in June, I decided on the ATI 5770 Vapor-X for my HTPC in July. My primary concern was that my 500-watt dual-rail Thermaltake TR2 Power supply was going to have issues running it, but such has not been the case. I'm not a tester so I don't have other video cards to compare this one with. All I can say is that at the default setting of 40% fan speed I can't hear it over the sound of my other computer fans (8 of them) which are all in the 20-30 dba range. The sound of the video card fan only becomes noticeable over 60%. Fan noise at these levels has not been an issue for us as we don't watch many movies with a lot of silent scenes and, in any case, our air cleaner which is just outside our living room doors is generally higher than 30 dba but is not noticed because it is on all the time. At 100% fan speed for gaming the game audio sound is very much louder than the video card.
