After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The Radeon HD 5770 is a favorite card among ATI fans and others for its great performance to price ratio. Being able to handle high game settings at 1080p helps to unlock visual quality in games that is normally reserved for much more expensive products. Combine that with lower power consumption and you have a great card for upgrading an OEM system or a strong base for a scalable multi GPU gaming rig.
The only sour spot with Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Flex was the lack or any real overclocking potential. For the fabled Radeon HD 5770 has been known for great overclocking and to not be able to hit at the very least a 950 core speed is frowned upon by enthusiasts. Still, as with everything overclocked "your mileage may vary", and for us it did.
