PHYSICAL DETAILS: HIS HD 5570/5500 Silence 512MB

The 512MB versions of the HD 5570 and 5500 Silence are physically identical except for connectivity. The 5550 has HDMI, DVI, and VGA, while the 5570 swaps VGA for a DisplayPort.

The 5550/5570 512MB ship in minimal packaging.

The cards have 16.7 cm (6.6") long PCBs and a large fanless cooler covering most of the surface.

The passive heatsink is a two slot solution shaped like a bat with wings outstretched to each side. The fins are ridged to increase the total surface area, but cutting up the wide fins into smaller ones would've helped further.

The cooler is held on with 4 screws that can be removed from the other side. The mounting holes form a 43 mm square, typical for 5400/5500 series cards.
