PowerColor rolls out low-profile HD 5750

Written by Slobodan Simic

The HTPC beast

In order to keep HTPC users happy, PowerColor has decided to roll out a new low-profile HD 5750 that features a rather neat looking dual-slot, dual-fan cooler. The new PowerColor HD 5750 should be available in next few weeks with a price set at around US $25 more than a standard version, probably due to the special cooler.

The new HD 5750 Low Profile features 720 Stream processors, works at 700MHz for the GPU and 4600MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. The card comes with DVI, HDMI and D-Sub outputs and has support for AMD's Eyefinity. The cooler comes from Arctic Cooling and we are quite sure that it will do a good job in keeping the HD 5750 GPU temps at a decent level, although two small fans might make more noise than we would prefer.

According to our info, the card might end up on retail shelves as early as next week, depending on the region. The price should end up at US $25 more than a standard HD 5750, which means that it might retail at around US $150, or €130 in Europe.

FYI, most HTPC's can't fit in DUAL SLOT cards.
(This card is dual slot because of the chunky fan)

So I guess they canned the slim 5770 that they were working on? Bummer.

AndreiD:

er, how do you know that 'most' htpc's can't take this card? i'd bet that more than 50% can.

hsew:

bummer? this'll use less power, create less heat, and if it's anything like the standard size cards should overclock to within 5-10% of hd5770 performance. what's not to like?

Try to build an HTPC and you'll see that space is pretty limited if you're going for a small form factor.

i have built several htpc's (i'm typing this on my latest one) and all of them would've taken this card. my last one wasn't even much bigger than a xbox 360...
