XFX is getting set to release two new single slot ATI HD 5770 video cards. The cards are the HD-577X-ZMF3 and the HD-577X-Z5F3 which both feature a black PCB and black heatsink so each one looks pretty snazy. Both cards launch with the stock clocks of 850MHz on the core and 4800MHz on the memory. Each one has the usual 1GB GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit interface but the real selling point is the single slot nature. This enables the card to fit in much tighter spaces, like say a small form factor case, while still providing exceptional gaming performance. The difference between the cards is that the ZMF3 has two DVI ports and one mini DisplayPort while the Z5F3 has five mini DisplayPorts making it ideal for a large Eyefinity setup.

Both cards are expected to ship during the middle of August around the $200 price point.

Now that's some great innovation!

I'm surprised they haven't done this earlier, since the 9800GT was a single slot and the 5770 doesn't use as much power as that.

Did neone notice that the cooler is the other way around?

@ Joel Yeah, I cam only think of a few reasons why they might do that. 1. With it being a single slot, they loose a lot of head room for a heat sink and maybe didn't want to but the heat sink against the display ports. 2. More probably in my opinion, is due to the loss of rear case air intake. It is less than ideal to have hot air from the case being pulled onto the card. But, even worse would behaving the fan on the rear portion of the card, pulling air in, and discarding that air out the side. Then, the card would e blowing hot air on what ever happens to be below it. Anyone else have any ideas?
