POWERCOLOR 5770 DRIVER

When graphics cards produce a lot of heat, usually that heat needs to be transported away from the hot core as fast as possible. The 6-pin power connector header to the left. Is CrossFire a decent upgrade path? Next to that we have energy saving functions disabled for this motherboard and processor to ensure consistent benchmark results. Not every Radeon HD is made equally thanks to ATI’s decision not to produce a stock card, but XFX is confident its offering has the edge thanks to a very competitive price tag and custom cooling. We strive to not only record real-world performance you will actually see, but also present the results in a manner that is easy to digest.

We strive to not only record real-world performance you will actually see, but also present the results 57700 a manner that is easy to digest. The human hearing system has different sensitivities at different frequencies.

Powercolor HD 5770 Vortex FurMark-ed

Frequencies below 1kHz and above 6kHz are attenuated, where as frequencies between 1kHz and 6kHz are amplified by the A weighting. As you can see we get respectable temperatures returned — but it’s not very different from reference cooler.

The 6-pin power connector header to the left. Are two HDs as fast as an HD ? We take a look to see if it’s performance stacks up to its price tag. Or is CrossFire still miss-firing?

What would happen if your PSU can’t cope with the load?:. The card however remains steady and we measure roughly dBA which is a low noise level but audible alright. DirectX 11 performance first look: BFG Tech has made the surprise announcement that it is to leave the graphics card market completely.

PowerColor HD PCS+ Review | TechPowerUp

The noise levels coming from the card are fine really, in idle you will not hear the card powercilor we powercolr 39 dbA, which is below the threshold of noise from the PC itself. I’d say on average we are using roughly 50 to Watts more than a standard PC due to higher CPU clock settings, water-cooling, additional cold cathode lights etc. Here’s what we get returned:. The IDLE wattage is very okay, the card is clocking down massively, resulting in an all time low power consumption for our test PC.

Written by Clive Webster. We’ve benchmarked furiously to find out!

PowerColor Radeon HD PCS+ review – Introduction

Once the card is installed and seated into the PC we now connect the 6-pin power connector to the graphics card. A specific circuit is added to the sound level meter to correct its reading in regard to this concept. We have a device constantly monitoring the power draw from the PC.

I’m doing a little try out today with noise monitoring, so basically the test we do is extremely subjective. Is the HD a better choice now? In other words, the 57770 noise levels in dB will not reflect the actual human perception of the loudness of the noise.

The methodology is powerccolor This dark spawn from PowerColor is a mainstream graphics card series that will allow you Often you’ll see massive active fan solutions that can indeed get rid of the heat, yet all the fans these days make the PC a noisy son of a gun.

powercokor The letter A is added to indicate the correction that was made in the measurement. Well, there is always noise in the background, from the streets, from the HD, PSU fan etc etc, so this is by a mile or two not a precise measurement.

Next to that we have energy saving functions disabled for this motherboard and processor to ensure consistent benchmark results. That’s why we measure the dBA level.

Noise Levels coming from the graphics card When graphics cards produce a lot of heat, usually that heat needs to be transported away from the powercplor core as fast as possible.

This means that the perception of noise is not at all equal at every frequency. When the card is clocked down and idling at MHz we see a temperature of roughly 40 degrees C F. What exactly does DirectX 11 bring to the table?
