Sapphire shows its HD 5770 FleX

Written by Slobodan Simic

Eyefinity without DisplayPort

Sapphire has announced its newest HD 5000 series that offers Eyefinity feature but without all the hassle with DisplayPort monitors or adapters, the HD 5770 FleX.

The secret behind this Juniper-based card lies in its single-link DVI connector. To be precise, one of the DVI ports is single-link that can output 1920x1200 resolution while other one is a dual-link and can handle 2560x1600. This leaves you with an option to run up to four monitors at 1920x1200 or two at 2560x1600.

The rest of the specs are pretty standard for an HD 5770 card, so you are looking at a card with 800 Stream processors, GPU clock at 850MHz and 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4800MHz and paired up with a 128-bit memory interface.

Sapphire has decided to go for a dual-slot cooler with a rather thick copper heatpipe and considering that partners are rolling out single slot HD 5770 cards we are sure that this one will do a pretty good job.

Although Sapphire didn't announce the price of its HD 5770 Flex, it has appeared in e-tail/retail with a listed price set at €205,92.

I'll buy one of these cards, if eyefinity 3 monitor works.
The nazi-like detached and uncaring ATI for once in a blue moon, allowed one of it's partners to THINK ABOUT THE GAMER/ END USER, instead of their expensive not available display port crap !
Sapphire, the company with the unusual offerings that you don't always advertise and sometimes even list, unlike this case, where a COMMON SENSE approach is used, mindful of those throwing money down the debt pit of amd ati.
I WANT SOME VALUE from ati instead of promises and crappy drivers and failed CFX, and no PhysX, no Cuda, no FREE Design Garage Ray Tracing, crappy folding, GSOD's, big or stippled mouse cursors, etc etc.
THE FIRST CARD WITH A VALUE AT IT'S PRICE FOR ATI! Let's hope it DOES do eyefinity 3 way! :)

For the love of all that's fair and good, would you kindly STFU!

So I went ot a couple reviews sites, OCC and HH, for those that are in the know, and neither did the 3 monitor eyefinity tests.
I guess it's more waiting... maybe they are forbidden for now... but it seems to me it's the only thing that really matters for this new release. DUH.
It would actually make it a desirable card - especially if it isn't disastrous eyefinity crashing - I sure hope that's not why they didn't post eyefinity tests.
(overclockers club and hardware heaven noobs!)

I too was looking for some Eyefinity testing and found it on both KitGuru and Thinq. :-)

I think they did't test Eyefinity because they don't have enough monitors! :D
