Review: Superb performance for HTPCs











We received the Sapphire HD 5570 1GB DDR3 PCI-E VGA/DVI-I/DP, SKU: 11167-04-40R in a large box that Sapphire uses for HD 5000 series, only this time with another picture. The front shows flagship features like ATI Eyefinity multi-display support, DisplayPort and DVI, DirectX 11 support, ATI Stream, PCI-E 2.0, CrossFireX, LP bracket, 1024MB of DDR3 memory and SimHD plug-in for ArcSoft.

The back of the box is pretty uninteresting; you’ll find some specs listed.

Within the box is another box that keeps the card from potential damage in transport. All the paper used is recyclable.

As is usual with cheaper cards, the card doesn’t come with a free game, but Sapphire conveniently included two low profile I/O panels that can be used instead of the standard panel. The reason is that the original panel might not fit into your HTCP case, and it shows that Sapphire thought it out pretty well. The additional panel with an opening for a VGA connector can be mounted in the free slot next to the card. The VGA connector is connected with a cable so routing it to the next slot is not a problem.
