Elite Bastards: XFX Radeon HD 5770 XXX 1GB & Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB
Now that AMD's mainstream Radeon HD 5700 series parts have been available in the market for a couple of months or so, we're starting to see more boards deviate from the company's reference design in an attempt to offer something different to potential buyers. Elite Bastards take a look at two such boards with very different agendas, from the heavily overclocked XFX Radeon HD 5770 XXX through to the vapour chamber, custom cooled Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X.
While XFX have kept their eyes firmly on clock speeds and performance, Sapphire's Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X board sees only a token 10MHz core clock speed increase in this discipline to mark it out from the pack. Instead, the real highlight of this particular part is the presence of Sapphire's custom-built vapour chamber cooling solution, as you can see below.
