    Here are some of the industry's first low-profile graphics cards based on the ATI Radeon HD 5700 series GPUs. PowerColor's approach is straightforward, with a somewhat long PCB that houses the HD 5700 series GPU, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory with chips on either sides of the PCB. With over a billion transistors, the Juniper GPU still needs a reasonable amount of cooling, so the card is given a double-slot cooler with an aluminum heatsink that is cooled by two 50~60 mm fans. The card draws power from a single 6-pin power connector. Output connectivity includes one DVI-D, and an HDMI. PowerColor will release both Radeon HD 5770 and Radeon HD 5750 in using this low-profile design.

    Sucks that they don't have Crossfire connectors, but still, most HTPCs have miniATX/iTX motherboards, so it wouldn't be very marketable.

    Powercolor FTW! :toast:

    W1zzard, can you please bench this one? Pretty please? :roll:

    If it maintains the same performance as the "regular" HD 5770 and overclockability (I think I just made that up...), I'm so sticking one of these in a HTPC.

    An HTPC/Gaming rig is already on my mind...:D

    God i hate these crap coolers. Why aren't they investing into exhaust system coolers more.
    It looks like these are the easiest to make. But they dump all the crap heat inside...

    yeah but most cases nowadays have very efficient designs for great airflow. So as long as your case provides excellent positive airflow your good.;) I like this little card with a decent cooler.

    These are just awesome. I hope they don't cost more than regular 5700's though.

    I think they obviously would, because it's a derived version of the reference card for HTPCs...so most likely it will...I just hope not to cost too much more.
