While the PowerColor AX5770 1GBD5-PPGV2 performed well enough to play in almost all of our game titles (you might need to lower the settings a little on the DX11 titles), it only just kept up with its competition, the GTS450. We have seen the AX5770...

PowerColor's HD 5770 PCS++ is an excellent addition to the HD 5770 market. It is the only HD 5770 that comes with a Volterra voltage regulator which allows dynamic software voltage control. While this might not be of great importance for most normal...

Therefore, the dilemma comes down to the price: the 10€ you have to add for PowerColor’s PCS+ will be swiftly mourned away by the quiet, fast and very well-cooled graphics card and the free game you will receive. Those on the hunt for extravagant...

PowerColor Radeon HD 5770 PCS+ 1024MB is a similarly good product which is also overclocked. Unfortunately, it's also badly packed. They should secure cards better to avoid transportation...

We quite like the Radeon HD 5770 as a GPU for anyone who cant stretch to 200 for the it offers plenty of performance for 120. PowerColor has tweaked the reference design to deliver more performance, but some of the other...

So overall the PowerColor HD Radeon 5770 PCS+ certainly is a nice performing card. If you can find it priced not to steeply then you'll gain a lot of fun and performance from it and yeah, it comes stacked with features alright. The custom cooler is...

PowerColor give us a higher factory overclock and following a BIOS update near silent operation which makes this card even more desirable than the standard card from other manufacturers. Sapphire offer...

The PowerColor HD 5770 PCS+ is a good all-around video card. It's the kind of video card that you can expect to get the job done, when it comes to gaming. As far as this reviewer is concerned, the current high-end starts at the HD 5770. If you want...

Overall, the PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB of memory performed very strong - not quite always at the level of a Radeon HD 4890, but on occasion matching or even beating the Vapor-X from Sapphire. Performing around the level of a GTX260, but...

Die Grafikkarte Powercolor Radeon HD 5770 PCS+ zeigte die bisher beste Multimedia- und Spiele-Leistung. Der Test prüft, ob auch Lieferumfang und Umweltaspekte auf ähnlich hohem Niveau liegen. Besonderheit: Die Grafikkarte Powercolor Radeon HD...

Die andere ventilator had PowerColor echter beter niet kunnen kiezen. Met 50 dB was de Club 3D al niet bijster stil, maar Power Color maakt ’t met 62,1 dB wel érg bont. Tot overmaat van ramp blijkt de kaart dan ook nog eens relatief warm te worden....

PowerColor legte das Augenmerk der HD5770 PCS+ Grafikkarte auf die Lautstrke bei gleichzeitiger Steigerung der Gesamtperformance. Whrend letzteres eher nebenschlich ausfllt, kann die Lautstrke vollends berzeugen. Sie...

Mit der PowerColor Radeon HD 5770 PCS+ hatten wir die erste Radeon HD 5770 im Testlabor, die einen anderen Weg als das Referenzdesign einschlgt. Nicht nur die Taktraten und das PCB wurden modifiziert, auch ein anderer Khler kommt zum...

Alles in allem betrachtet erfllte die PowerColor PCS+ HD5770 unsere Erwartungen nicht. Ein eigenes Design kann durchaus Vorteile mit sich bringen. Die Vorteile lagen bei PowerColor ganz offensichtlich aber in der Kosteneinsparung.Das zieht sich...
