GIGABYTE today launched the latest in-house designed GIGABYTE
GV-R577SL-1GD, featuring GIGABYTE?s own Ultra Durable VGA
Technology and silent-cell cooling design.
GIGABYTE?s GV-R577SL-1GD is built on the ATI RadeonTM HD 5770
Series GPU ─ which utilizes the latest 826 million transistors
on 40nm fabrication process and GDDR5 memory. GIGABYTE
GV-R577SL-1GD is equipped with Microsoft DirectX 11, ATI
Eyefinity Technology, ATI Stream technology, ATI CrossFireX
multi-GPU support, UVD 2 and PowerPlay.
The GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD features GIGABYTE?s own Ultra
Durable VGA Technology, which can provide overclocking
capability, lower GPU temperature, and power efficiency.
GIGABYTE?s technology Ultra Durable VGA features 2 oz copper
PCB board, Samsung and Hynix memory, Japanese solid capacitor,
Ferrite /Metal Core Chokes, and Low RDS (on) MOSFET. According
to the company, compared with traditional graphics
accelerators, Ultra Durable VGA graphics accelerators can lower
GPU temperature by 5%~10%, decrease power switching loss by
10%~30%, and increase overclocking capability by 10%~30%.
In order to satisfy the individual needs of home
theater enthusiasts alike, the passively cooled GV-R577SL-1GD
features GIGABYTE?s Silent-cell cooling design with 4
High-performance heat pipes and 2 additional fins to increase
surface area for better cooling and heat dissipation.
GV-R577SL-1GD is comprised of 4 heat pipes which are connected
to the ultra-huge copper base plate. By adopting ultra-huge
pure copper base with 4 heat pipes, heat can spreads
effectively from hot areas. In addition, GV-R577SL-1GD enhances
the overall cooling capability by utilizing the precision
process to deliver zero-interval combination between heat pipes
and fins. Furthermore, 2 additional fins increase 52.87%
surface area to dissipate the GPU temperature.
The GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD features ATI's latest 2nd Generation
TeraScale graphics engine, boasting the power of more than 2
teraFLOPS with 800stream processors respectively. With 1GB
GDDR5 memory, the GV-R577SL-1GD provides twice the data per pin
of GDDR3 memory at the same clock speeds. Utilizing ATI
Eyefinity Technology, every gamer can run up to 3 displays from
a single graphics board and expand the field of view across all
displays. Furthermore, benefited from ATI Stream Technology,
end-user can easily unleash the parallel processing power of
GPU for physics, artificial intelligence, stream computing and
ray tracing calculations, and tackle demanding tasks like video
transcoding with incredible speed. In addition, the GIGABYTE
GV-R577SL-1GD fully supports Microsoft DirectX 11 for 3D gaming
In order to provide the best digital audio/video
interconnection between a computer and display monitor or
home-theater system, the GIGABYTE GV-R577SL-1GD is capable of
outputting DispalyPort signals. The DisplayPort interface can
support higher resolutions, richer color depth, and increase
refresh rate performance, delivering 10.8Gbps of bandwidth over
previous generations of connectivity options such as DVI, LVDS
and VGA. With added DisplayPort connectivity on the
GV-R577SL-1GD, PC gamers are able to play all the latest games
on their large-screen home theater displays. Furthermore, the
GIGABYTE GV-R5770 Series are equipped with ATI PowerPlay
technology, maximizing performance per watt by delivering the
highest level of high performance when needed and conserving
power when the demand on the GPU is low.
