Resized ImageThe GV-R587SO-1GD is Gigabytes version of a highly overclocked Radeon 5870 graphics card. This furhter development has almost nothing in common with ATIs reference design. Gigabytes engineers created an almost entierly new PCB which only carries the best components available. As a result you get a card that does 950 MHz GPU clock speed default from the factory and paired up with the new cooler it is even more silent than ATIs reference card. Sounds like a recipe, doesn't it?

We'd like to thank Gigabyte for providing us with the testsample.

As with all the HD5870s this one is also being empowered by a RV870 chip (codename "Cypress"). Furthermore the GPU measures 334 square millimeters and carries an astonishing 2.15 billion transistors. Gigabytes GV-R587SO-1GD supports ATI Eyefinity which allows a user to connect three displays simultaneously.

On the following pages we will show you the strenghts and weaknesses of the Gigabyte 5870 SOC.
