Low Profile 5700 GPUs and Video Card Stands
PowerColor was also showing off their Radeon HD5770/HD5750 Low Profile Edition video card that is aimed at HTPC users or those that want a video card for a slim case. The HD5770/HD5750 single slot solution can maximize your PC’s performance with limited space, enabling the best gaming experience ever in a slim system. The dual fan design ensures that the card is kept nice and cool, but it will be interesting to hear how loud those fans get when the card is under a work load.
The PowerColor Radeon HD5770/HD5750 Low Profile Edition video card might be low-profile, but it is also chunky as it is a dual slot card. The flash didn't work out too well on the picture above, but the PowerColor card features HDMI and DVI ports on the rear bracket.
PowerColor also tossed one of these our way and we had no clue what the heck it was. This is a video card stand that you can place under your card to help support the weight of it. This is a great idea for those that have heavy water cooling blocks on their video cards as all that weight is hanging there supported by just a screw or two and of course the PCIe x16 slot itself.
With this stand you can place it under the video card at the bottom of your case and raise up the little jack inside it until the GPU stand is supporting the bulk of the weight. A very simple product that works and retails for under $10 once it launches. The only negative that we see to a product like this is that it might not stay put when transporting the case.
