    Following the likes of PowerColor and HIS, Sapphire, one of AMD's largest AIB partners, is preparing a custom-design Radeon HD 4770 accelerator. Highlights of this card are strictly confined to its design and cooling, not that it has a brighter specs sheet compared to the reference design. It uses a blue colored PCB with a heat-spreader over the card's VRM area, and the GPU is cooled by an Accelero L2 variant originally made by Arctic Cooling. Display outputs include DVI-D, D-Sub, and HDMI. Specifications-wise, the accelerator sticks to AMD reference clock speeds of 750/800 MHz (core/memory), and sports 512 MB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit interface. Again, expect standard pricing on this one.

    Finally, a blue PCB. This would look good with my ASRock board...

    Well dude id rather have the dual slot than the single slot now, if you dont like it so much go and get a Stock 4850.

    My only beef is this card is only 512, Gimme a 1-2GB board.

    Hopefully the next generation's cards will include 256-bit, more RAM and a non-cookie cutter cooler.

    Any particular problem with that? I'd prefer having a dual slot card that lasts rather than having a single slot card that fails in a few months. You do realise how hot the refernece single slot designs run?
