same exact cooler as on this card
from first page:
where do they get the fugly looking coolers from ? , they need to get better designers for these coolers if you ask me
Im really liking all the Black PCBs...
No it IS NOT the exact same cooler.
People look at the fins under the top of the cooler. Completely different.
Actually that cooler reminds me of the control from this game: http://www.hasbro.com/common/images/products/006001f72e1_Main400.jpg which is the Ouija board game

Looks just like a HD4770.
If this is supposed to perform a tad better than the 9800 GTX+/GTS 250/HD 4850, the 5770 is supposed to be about as good as the Radeon HD 4870/GTX 260 and the 5850 is ahead of the GTX 285 doesn't that sort of leave a noticable gap in terms of price/performance (everything between the GTX 275 to the GTX 280/Radeon HD 4890)? I'm sure they could probably fill that void with another SKU down the line though but still, ATI usually likes to cover all their bases in terms of placement it seems rather odd they'd leave this 'gap' unfilled?
make way for the 5770
To maintain current price-to-performance ratios, this thing needs to sit in at under $150. That or they'll have to forcibly discontinue the HD4K series, 'cause a 4770/4850 is still a damn good buy in this market.
It scores a few hundred points more in 3dMark 06 than a 4850. Not bad at all for such a small card.
