XFX Radeon HD 5770 Single Slot Tested with 5 Latest Games and 3D Blu-Ray

Conclusion

When it comes to the hardware and design aspects of the 5770 there are, at this stage in the product life cycle, few surprises. Everyone should know what they are getting but XFX have still tried to mix things up a little, giving us a compact version of the card. When manufacturers go smaller with their cooling it can often lead to noisy, high pitched fans or high temperatures but neither is an issue with the XFX single slot card. It idles at 55°C, never rises above 79°C when gaming and even at full load is one of the quietest components in our system.

In terms of performance, the whole point of this article, we were very pleased to see that the XFX 5770 Single Slot was able to provide perfect framerates in the latest games. Whether it was racing round Monaco in the rain or fighting our way round the jungle in Call of Duty Black Ops the 5770 provided perfectly smooth gameplay at 1920×1080 with maximum detail levels.

In terms of value, we have a card which retails for around £100/$135 with a decent warranty, excellent support service and from some retailers free software.

Summary
For serious gamers who cannot afford the more expensive 6800 series the XFX 5770 provides the ideal solution for gaming at resolutions up to 1920×1080.
