PowerColor PCS HD5750 1GB GDDR5 Premium Edition
Package and Accessories
This card’s packaging is far from original, too. The box is vertically oriented and embellished with a picture of a warrior in gaudy armor.
There is little information on the box. Besides the type and amount of graphics memory, the I/O connectors are indicated, but wrongly. The text “Dual DVI” implies two DVI ports, but the card has one port of each type: DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. There is also a sticker reading “Professional Cooling System”. We will see shortly what is so professional about it. The product is accompanied with the following accessories:
- DVI-I → D-Sub adapter;
- Brief installation manual;
- CD disk with drivers;
- Coupon for free Colin McRae: Dirt 2 download.
The accessories seem to be scantier than those of the ASUS EAH5770/2DIS/1GD5, but the owner of a PowerColor PCS HD5750 1GB GDDR5 Premium Edition can download a full version of the racing sim Colin McRae: Dirt 2 for free. The game supports DirectX 11 and can vividly demonstrate the unique capabilities of the ATI Radeon HD 5x00 series. PowerColor should be praised for including a popular game with a graphics card costing less than $150.
