More details on Powercolor's HD 5770 Vortex

Twistable fan

Since yesterday's piece on Powercolor's upcoming HD 5770 Vortex graphics card, we managed to score some additional info regarding the fan. Or to be precise, we managed to clarify some things regarding its performance.

The cooler on the card is actually a dual-slot design and will feature the same cooling performance as the PCS+ version, except for the fact that you can actually twist the fan and make it rise a bit in order to blow air over greater surface.

When pulled out to take "almost three slots" the Vortex should be better than the PCS+ cooler, including noise and performance.

The new Powercolor HD 5770 Vortex is scheduled to launch pretty soon, probably in next week or two, and then we will know for sure how good it is.
