After careful consideration and much regret 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 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 ATI Radeon HD 5000 series product offering is almost complete with products positioned at the super high end, down to the mid-range and budget space.  All of these cards support DirectX 11 and do so with a varied amount of performance capacity.  In this review we are going to look at the new Radeon HD 5770 from Gigabyte. The Radeon HD 5770 is the middle ground on the gaming performance spectrum designed to be cheaper than the HD 5870 and slightly more powerful than the HD 5670.
