ATI Radeon HD 5870 Review

Quote:
Following a successful run with the codenamed R700 family of GPUs, which was originally released back in June 2008 as the Radeon HD 4000 series, AMD is launching the highly anticipated R800. Debuting to no one's surprise as the ATI Radeon HD 5000, the new series is said deliver around 2x more performance than previous generation Radeon cards, and brings DirectX 11 support to desktops for the first time.

For something theoretically doubling the processing power of a HD4890 I'm not totally impressed with the results.

According to Toms Hardware graphs, its beaten by the 4870 x2
3x monitor support according to initial tests seems a bit iffy. I'm sure driver sets in the future will iron out issues as always, but on a whole I'm a little disappointed with the 5870.

IMO for the first time (since I'm looking to upgrade to just 1 card)
This looks very promising. I'll just have to get used to the ATI drivers since I have always heard nothing but problems with them yet lately since AMD took over things are getting better. Awsome card.

Only the new ATI UI (since 9.7) is a complete disaster.

It more like a puzzle game, than an UI.

I hope they fire the moron who came up with it.

Thanks for the read, looks like a good card but still wasn't convinced at the end whether it is as good as they say, maybe time will prove me wrong.
