Aug 26, 2010

Gigabyte has revealed a new HD5770 Silent Cell graphics card. Although the card has reference clocks the card has custom design with a new cooler and is built with "Gigabyte's Ultra Durable VGA Technology."

The Silent Cell version of the HD5770 has a massive aluminium heatsink that passively cools the card. Heat is transferred from the GPU through 4 6mm heatpipes to the aluminium fins which cover the whole card and extend slightly over the sides. Other than the unique cooler, the card has stock clocks 850/1200 (Core/Memory) with a 128bit wide bit interface and 1GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory. Pricing has not been revealed yet.
