Having a look at the card, you really get that cheaper feel to the series due to the smaller fan and single slot design. Most of the PCB is visible and we know for a fact that the little fan here is going to cause more noise than we prefer because of the nature of the design.
When we looked at the Sapphire HD 5670 we were impressed with the cooling option they opted for. Today we might get a chance to see how that setup compares to the stock one here. And while it being single slot which is going to be handy for some, the noise may be an issue. We'll find out exact numbers soon enough.
Like the Sapphire version, we again have no extra power requirements for the model. What's missing, though, is a CrossFire connector. While the technology is still supported, adding the physical CrossFire connector costs more money so it's a way for companies to save a few dollars which in turn means you save a few dollars. Just make sure you keep an eye out for the one you buy since if you're thinking about some budget CrossFire action, you may prefer the connectors.
Connectivity doesn't hold any surprises with a Dual-Link DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI port all being seen and giving us the ability to run EyeFinity. The big thing to remember here compared to the Sapphire one we looked at is while both only use a single slot for connectivity, the Sapphire does require two slots in your case due to the bigger fan.
Since the Sapphire one we looked at followed the reference clocks and the reference one is of course going to follow those same clocks, you won't find any real surprises here with the core coming in at the same 775MHz.
The GDDR5 also comes in at the same 4000MHz QDR clock, although in this case we only have 512MB on hand versus the 1GB that we saw on the Sapphire version.
