Powercolor took a stand with their recent products to “Go Green” towards helping the environment while producing fast quality products that will grab end users and inspire envy in others. This year they had several of their products on display, including their Radeon HD 5770, which follows the energy saving Go Green features by adding silent cooling and reducing power consumption. The HD 5770 consumes only 75 watts of power, which it draws completely from the PCI Express slot and has no need for any external power. Even with the lower power draw the card’s clock speeds are not touched or down-clocked, so you get the full performance of the card with less power waste.
In addition to the HD 5770 Powercolor was showing off some of their other graphics cards including their HD 5850, HD 5870 and their massive liquid cooled HD 5970 LCS.
What Mushkin had to offer this year was a move into the thumb drive and SSD market with its Mulholland Drive USB thumb drives and IO series Solid State Drives that support read speeds of 250MB/sec and write speeds of 180MB/sec. Also they have a new Blackline memory kit for P55 based systems with 7-8-7 timings at 1600MHz. Expect to see reviews on all three of these products in the near future.
