nice review as always
but uhm, the reference doesnt require a 6pin does it, i cant see it does in any article
Looks like a decent card from a Manufacturer I have never heard of Until now
Nice review, I didn't know that the HD 5600's series needed a six-pin power connector.
All this means is that this card use cheaper components than the reference card :shadedshu
oh you guys are right abotu the power connector, my bad, fixed the article
Do you need to have the power connector plugged in at all? Looking at the power draw (even lower then ref in idle and max) there's no reason for it.
Yes u do since despite the card consuming very little power,th epower is delivered from the back of teh card,thus the use of 6pin.It seems it could go with mobo power only but for some reason axle left the power circuitry near the dvi-vga empty..??
I think they're a Europe only vendor
i havent seen them in Denmark, but then again, denmark sucks when it comes to different hardware brands
Nope, Axle is a Chinese vendor.
Their HQ is based in HK.
No, it means they added the connector for show, because power consumption was actually better, meaning better components.
Better power consumption can come in a few different ways.
It can be due to better board design, but it can also be due to better cooling.
additional power connector could be for overclocking
i would rather have the msi cyclone edition if it was for oc'ing
MSI certainly gets a poorish rating when it comes to cards and motherboards
Seems oddly timed if this card is a new release, aren't these about to be updated to 640 shaders?
Newer game titles please.
hmm Axle in my country was uber cheapo brand, and every card that have axle brand in it feel very cheap and have questionable quality.
had no issues with quality, card felt just as solid as any other card
Is the price really 119$ for this card? you could buy a decent use 5770 for around 125$
I dont see were the price and performance meet the need
BTW!!!! GREAT REVIEW WIZZ!
Used being the important word there. Prices for new graphics cards aren't dictated by what used cards go for, that would just be stupid.
$120 is about the middle of where the 1GB HD5670 cards go for new, so I don't see a problem with the price.
True that used should not be compared with new, but any one not crazy will go for used 5770 rather than new 5670.
A lot of people, including myself, don't like to buy some things used. I specifically never buy used video cards, because I want the warranty that comes with the new card, it is worth the extra $20-30.
some companies warranties are transferable.
