Gigabyte HD 5770 listed, pictured
In all its glory, a bit blurry
Well there's really not much to say. One of our eagle-eyed readers stumbled upon Gigabyte's HD 5770 is listed in an Aussie shop. The price is AUD 262.90, which works out to almost €160.
It looks like a proper dual-slot card. It sports a good looking, massive enclosure for the heatsink and rather sizable fan, and the PCB doesn't look small, either. At the rear, it packs two DVIs, HDMI and DisplayPort, as well as an exhaust vent. It seems all HD 5700 series cards will feature DisplayPort.
Mind you, for some reason Aussies tend to pay quite a bit more for their hardware. We are expecting the HD 5770 retail prices in Europe to range from €130+ to €150, depending on the bundle.
We chose not to link the retailer to save him the misery of getting those angry phone calls from distributors or AMD people. Thanks Ollie!
