    Good review,

    At least one thing decent about the higher pricing would be the better optimized PCB for an overall lower power consumtion in both Idle and Load.

    And last, why is No support for cuda / psysx always being mentioned with an AMD/Ati card in general?

    Nice, a few more PCB tweaks and a 5770 that runs on the plain 75w from PCI-E might be possible =o

    its spec'd to, but for some reason that i don't kno they haven't made boards that support that spec. I mean its kinda rediculous with PCI-E 3.0 around the corner.

    Still alot of users with just plain PCI-express 1.0 or 1.0a.

    Temps were nothing to shout about though, my pair of 4890's might significantly use more power but they idle and load cooler than this 5770! OK I appreciate that I have the Toxic coolers on but nevertheless it's nothing to get excited about in comparison with other 5770's, nice review though.

    this must be a cheaper engineered 5770.

    I agree but the PCS+ is supposed to be their highly binned top model where they charge a premium. :eek:
