Review: Have Vapor-X - Will run great












As soon as we noticed the Vapor-X sign on Sapphire’s HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB card, we instantly new that this card will be a fierce competitor. We’ve seen Vapor-X technology quite a few times, and it enables for cooler and more stable GPU operations with minimum added costs. This graphics card is strong enough to provide decent gaming at 1920x1200, so if you’re looking for an affordable DirectX 11 gaming card, you’ll definitely want to include Sapphire’s HD 5770 1GB Vapor-X card in your list of candidates.

Apart from silent and efficient cooling, we managed to overclock the GPU and memory and score up to 7% better performance in gaming. Although HD 5770 cards are currently perhaps a tad pricier than they should be, Sapphire HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB will set you back about €155 and you can find it here, This might seem a bit too pricey, but the free Dirt 2 game makes the deal much lighter.

We were pretty happy with this card which managed to outmuscle reference cards out of the box, mostly thanks to a slight factory overclock. The card ran stable both overclocked and not, it kept “its cool” throughout our testing and was running very quiet – something we really like in graphics cards. All in all, if you’re looking for a fast, reliable, cool and quiet DirectX 11-capable card to play the latest titles, then look no further than Sapphire’s HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB card.
