Sapphire HD 5770 1GB Vapor-X tested

by on26 January 2010


The front of the box shows an icy desert which certainly does well to hint at Vapor-X technology. Of course, a little bit of marketing never hurt anyone so the box highlights the fact that it comes with a free Dirt 2 game.


Of course, the box also lists other specs such as 1GB of GDDR5, HDMI and DisplayPort outs, ATI Eyefinity multi-monitor support, DirectX 11, ATI Stream technology, PCI Express 2.0, CrossfireX support, etc.


Vapor-X HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E DUAL DVI-I/HDMI/DP, which is the card’s full name, comes in sturdy packaging made of recycled paper. The package holds the card, Dirt 2 coupon, driver CD, installation guide, DVI-to-VGA adapter, Molex-to-6 pin cable adapter and a CrossFire connector.
