Gigabyte Radeon HD 5770 Pictured

Here's the first sighting of what the reference-design AMD Radeon HD 5770 could really end up looking like. Unlike a previous set of pictures of the engineering sample showing a cooler design that resembles that of the Radeon HD 4770 (AMD reference), and Radeon HD 3870, this accelerator by Gigabyte is retail-grade, as it was pictured at a store, and carries an AIB's branding. The card design in many respects looks like a further shortened version the Radeon HD 5800 series owing to essentially the same cooler design. It retains the black PCB pictured earlier, and the connectivity cluster of two DVI, and one each of DisplayPort and HDMI. This picture follows a recent photo-shoot of the Radeon HD 5750, and its reference design, showing a simpler GPU cooler design which is loosely based on that of the Radeon HD 4770 (AIB popular reference design).

Why wouldn't they price it higher than the 4770? I mean it's more powerful and it has dx11.
I was reading it was gonna be in the $150-199 range and be a replacement for the 4890. The 5750 was gonna be the replacement for the 4870

one other thing I read was it was like 1.6X better than the 4770, but others said it was similar. It will be nice to see what its really like.

The smaller hole to exit air means the air will be moving faster,ala a venturi in a carburettor.

Terrible analogy. Carburettor venturi work by the Bernoulli principle. The "negative pressure" in the cylinder chambers creates a low static pressure in the carborettor which makes a small amount of hydrocarbon "sucked in and mixed" through the venturi into the intake manufold.

The venturi is an ENTRY not an EXIT system.

lol, just got me a 4870 today and i love it.:)
:) I thought you were going to get a GTX260. I just bought a 4890 and am also very happy with it. The new cards look very nice, but I agree with you that the current 4870/4890 are still good buys.

I was going to get one, but i wasn't able to buy online so i went out and found the 4870 was cheaper. So i got it instead, and it was a great pick.:)

small hole to vent out the back though.
Well looking at the pick it has a vent out the back and a vent out the side of the card. So the vent it the back is larger than the rear panel will suggest.
