    yeah i guess the bw does add up and work better for an xfire setup than a single gpu... still dissapointing though... if bw is really such a big limit then why did they stay at 256bit and didnt go at least 384?

    get a grip with dx10.1 with dx11, and nvidia isnt even contending.
    wth are you talking about? are you y_eye? your sentences sound really weird just like the stuff he puts together
    so cause its new its better?
    and cause it supports dx11 its better?

    in dow2 the 5870 is 5-10fps slower than the 295

    That is important for reason as, microstuttering using sli/crossfire, stuttering in intensive fights, racegames etc...
    right, one gpu is better than 2 but if that 1 gpu costs more than 2 other gpus you do start thinking how bad the micro stuttering really is...

    that review your linking to is comparing a dx11 patched game vs the dx10 version... fair enough... but i doubt we will even see a handful of games with dx11 support anytime soon...

    so 5850 keeps a notable higher min fps compared to a 4890?
    its a shame tpu doesnt show min fps... ill read some more reviews...

    The cards are nicely performing, but I hope them drivers mature fast and games, software is adapted rapidly, so we can see some real gains of these GPU's...

    Only thing I see is pre order...where did you order yours Jamesrt2004 ?
    I bought mine at overclockers.co.uk for about € 333 including shipment.
    Not that cheap as in the USA, but better as Belgium online shops.

    I expected more from this card. I hope its just early unoptimized drivers because theoretically this card should be as fast if not slightly faster then HD 4890 CF.

    nvidia will fist have to make the GT300 and for their sake, as well as ours, they better make something better than the bloated GT200. I don't think nvidia can survive another GT200 scenario, not with the HD5xxx in production, HD4xxx was way easier to compete with.

    GT300 might be faster than the HD5xxx but at what price? I mean die size and yield, heat output and power consumption, performance per transistor or mm2.

    Also nvidia will have to make quite the leap, if they want to make GT300 a definite winer they will have to make it MORE than 2x as fast as prev gen, something the industry has yet to see. It is a very hard task IMO, and there might very well be another can of whoopass for nvidia. Hope they manage to stay competitive thou, for competitions sake.

    Very well done AMD, congrats. Time to buy some AMD stock maybe?


    This ^^

    ATi must've worked their cross-talk, because the HD5800 (Crossfire) series scales better, on almost all occasions. Wonder how well the x2 line is going to scale, seeing that their cross bars run at higher freq.

    What I think is the remarkable story is the Radeon HD5850.. @ $249 !!

    Not much for many of us, given.. but, clearly a $199 card by Xmass. Thus setting the bar for basic-mainstream DX11 enthusiasts, etc.


    ATM, the HD5870 makes everything else moot, period!

    I didn't follow the whole thread, maybe it has been posted before, anyway:

    Here's the HD 5870 review done by the German hardware magazine PC Games Hardware, this is the English version of the review. Check it out!

    Okay, it has been posted already... Sorry. -.-

    yeah not that impressed, what was the max i saw 10fps better than the GTX285 and that was only 1 game, all others were about equal with some being less.

    not worth the money to ME, but if you have a 4700 or 4800 or even a 4900 series card then you might see the increase. but for 285 owners... nope, nothing special about the ati card..... for now.

    ATM, the HD5870 makes everything else moot, period!
    boy if you call the MEAGER performance increase that i saw in those reviews a lead and a moot point then i have a bridge i'd like to sell you.

    but i agree give them time they will work on the drivers and hopefully get some more blood from this turnip.

    ok, i just read the hwcanucks review...
    hes using vista 64 sp1 instead of vista 32bit sp2 that tpu uses... and hes at 4g while tpu is at 3.8g for their i7 setups...
    im a bit confused how far their numbers are from each other, so i assume 32bit vs 64bit makes quite a diference?
    canucks has the 4870 and 295 performing worse than single gpu cards in quite some scenarios, and has the 4870x2 beating the 295 while on tpu the 295 is clearly ahead in almost every bench...

    another weird thing, canucks has a 5870 beat a 4870x2 in quite some situations as well...
    very weird... ill never understand how reviews can end up with numbers that are that far from each other using the same hw...
    dont get me wrong, im not saying any numbers are fake, it must be diferent windows and driver config...

    just finished the canucks review... i dont see the 5870 having constantly higher min fps than other cards... but in 2 or 3 scenarios yes...
    no major improvement though imo...

    it seems to make a huge diference what review you read!
    definately check out several reviews!!!
    hwcanucks draws a much more positive picture than tpu for example!

    Very disappointing. Why pay $400 for a 5870 when a $250 4870x2 performs the same? Better yet, just get 2x 4870 for $100 each.

    Sure for the rich gamers/benchers price is not an issue, but those are the minority.

    Dude.. the 5870 ownz the 285, it would be a great upgrade..! Even if they are the same price..!




    And yes, the HD5870 makes everything else moot. It's a single GPu chip debuting @ $349... Which means this will be a mainstream $319 card by the Holidays. We also know there will be a HD5890 and the enevitable new x2 series..!

    Lestat, do you not recognize the damage two HD5850's will do to anything nVidia relases, once these cards are $199?, for $399(HD5840 x2) you'll have 2,880 shaders...!

    What (under $400) will Nvidia have that can compete with that?

    Buy the 4870x2 and be outdated isn't something I'd like to repeat... I went the 3870x2 route when the 4870 was released and for me it was a poor decision. If you're gonna spend the money for an enthusiast part; get the new part IMHO.

    Now that I bought the 5870, I am free to CF them once the prices drop for a really nice performance gain. The prices never really drop below $300 for the x2 where the single card will dip to the $200s. So in the long run that would be only $580ish for two 5870s vs at least $600 for two 4870X2s. It's a wash

    power draw is BLAGGH on the 48XX



    @ le stat... the 5870 beat the 285 in all benches I saw by quite a margin... lol

    10 fps better?






    May buy new eyes or stop cherrypicking reviews!

    the tpu numbers are off compared to everything else i saw so far...
    i liked the xbitlabs one best so far, they test a lot of games in a lot of res, they use aa and af in a very smart way where it makes sense, and they show min and max fps and all details in how they tested...

    for xbitlabs the 5870 is give or take the same as a 4870x2 in performance, sometimes slightly ahead sometimes slightly behind.
    its clearly slower than the 295, but not by a huge margin...
    the one thing that looks odd on xbit is that the 295 DESTROYS both the 4870x2 and 5870 in hawx... it looks like they tested in 10.0 and not 10.1 and even then its really weird...

    after reading the hwcanucks and xbitlabs review i have a much more positive picture of the 5870...
    looks like its about the same as a 4870x2 but its one gpu and not two, which is a plus, and it has some improvements over the 4800 series...
    but the price is still not right... how can it cost 50$ more than a 4870x2? which performs about the same or even better in some sitations?
    and the very poor overclocking results on 5870 cards really suck too, only 5% according to tpu, thats a joke... even a super hot 4870x2 ocs better...

    Anand review rocks, as aways. Loved the idle power, stability in the card and overcurrent protection. For sure il try to sell my 4850 and buy a 5k series

    I'm wondering where Lestat got those scores as well.

    So what's the verdict: one 5870 or two 5850 as best price / perf?
