The price is mighty high, but considering you get 70% of the performance of a 5850, for ~56% of the price, it's in fact quite balanced when compared to the rest of the 5000 generation.
The problem here is that the overall price/perf ratio of this entire generation is too high
to much $$ over its little brother
Is overclocked and uses LESS power than reference design, well that's a first. Nicely done, but I still like my Vapor-X
That sure is a nice sample, mine crashed on MSI Kombustor with 950/1400 has to be core then seeing all these do over 1400 on memory. But nothing a little voltage bump don't fix, haven't just tweaked more yet.
Stock HD5770 has this famous Vapor-X heatsink too, but it is under the Batman shroud and can't be seen.
What PowerColor HD 5770 PCS++ brings is a Digital VRM + Voltera PWM.
Can we solder a PWM fan connector to this board?
$5 over its little brother, if you're referring to PCS+.
Well I wouldn't spend that much for only 25mhz more on the mem maybe on the core but you can easily overclock it to that. then spend that $5 on something you need
Yeah, but it runs 10C hotter and is more noisy idle than Vapor-X on load!
And that's why this model is also more expensive than the previous model, prefectly just.
(Now if they could only make 5850s like it, but cheaper )
