Powercolor shows its Vortex HD 5770 card

Powercolor has officially announced its PCS+ HD 5770 Vortex Edition graphics card. As you can remember, we already wrote about this card and its unique cooler, but today, Powercolor made it all offical. The card will feature a factory overclock but the main advantage is its special Vortex cooler that should end up to be up to 15 degrees cooler than the reference HD 5770 card.

The Powercolor PCS+ HD 5770 Vortex Edition features 800 Stream processors, works at 900MHz for the GPU and 4900MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. The card has a dual-slot design with two DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.

The key feature is its "adjustable" Vortex cooler, as it can be either pulled out in order to maximize the airflow coming to the heatsink or pushed down on it. Bear in mind that when the fan is pulled out, it takes slightly more room thus going over the dual-slot form factor.

The new PCS+ HD 5770 Vortex Edition card will be available on retail/e-tail shelves on July 28th and will be bundled with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 game.
