Sapphire Radeon 5770 Vapor-X
Lately we’ve looked at several of the new DX11-capable 5000 series graphics cards from AMD (and more on the way), from the budget gamer-oriented 5750, to the powerhouse 5870, to the behemoth dual-GPU 5970, and today we’ll be looking at another, the 5770. But not just any 5770, this one is a Sapphire Vapor-X model, another one in their famed lineup known for running cool and quiet. Gotta love that.
The Sapphire Radeon 5770 Vapor-X is a very interesting card, as it’s not as handicapped as its lesser 5750 sibling nor as expensive (or powerful) as its larger 5870 sibling, residing somewhere in the middle, in a more affordable market segment, for gamers who don’t want to scrape the bottom of the performance barrel but don’t have the budget to buy one of the larger Thoroughbreds. It sports Sapphire’s renowned Vapor-X cooler, and from what we’ve seen so far with this technology, it is outstanding. We expect more of the same today, so let’s take a closer look at what the 5770 Vapor-X brings to the game.
