Power consumption figures? I think they would be useful to know,
since previously Xbit Labs published a review for 6770. Comparing those numbers to these 3 cards would be good. And what about the differences in the decoder in the 5770 and 6770? Nonetheless good review although a bit incomplete. Cheers

overall a thorough review but it would be nice to see some power consumption figures.

I'd like to see how much heat these pour into your case. I know it's a "silent" review, DUH! But what's the coolest running card ? and at what temps ?

They have the temps with furmark at stock and overclocked for each card, asus was the coolest with powercolor close behind.

Temperature and heat are 2 different things though.. you need to know power consumption to know how much heat is being put into the case.

I have an HD5570 card now - and that is more than enough GPU power for everything I do with my desktop. I'm willing to spend a little $$ to upgrade my GPU just for things like folding, so it would be nice to see benchmarks for how well various video cards assist with those kind of tasks.

Interesting. At default the 5770 is EXACTLY on pair with the 6770. ATI rebrand?? )

Nice review. I'm wondering how they would stack up against a PowerColor SCS3 AX6850. One thing another reviewer tried was to put a quiet fan on it. The results were good. I'm thinking a 500 rpm Gentle Typhoon AP-11 would work wonders on that card. I'd like to see its performance stacked up against one of the cards in the present review.

This review is a total waste of time without power consumption compared to the older 5770 card
