Windows 7: Closing the gap: Radeon HD 5830 due January 25th.

Radeon HD 5830 Specifications and Priced Revealed:

Quote:
The card is based on AMD's Cypress LE core, used in HD 5850 cards, but it features fewer shaders, 1280 instead of 1440 on the HD 5850. It also has 60 texture units compared to 72 on the HD 5850. All in all it doesn't sound like AMD crippled it too much and we can assume it will still pack quite a punch. The GPU clock is apparently set at 750MHz, which is 25MHz faster than the reference HD 5850. The higher clock comes as a surprise, but bear in mind that these are unofficial specs and we're taking them with a grain of salt.
Quote:
According to an early EU listing, the card should cost around 215, but once again this is an unofficial figure. We guess it could easily drop below the 200 psychological barrier, but even if it doesn't it still sounds like a very tempting deal. An average HD 5850 will set you back around 250, so the 215 price tag sounds quite reasonable.
200 = ~$270.

Again, grain of salt.

Even with overclocking to identical clock speeds it will not be the same. Most likely it will have less SPUs, texture units and ROPs. Most likely it will not have 256-bit GDDR5 as well. Maybe 128-bit GDDR5 or 256-bit GDDR3.

When I saw that rumor about the specs and pricing for the 5830, I had to cringe. If they were to release it at $270, what would be the point of buying a 5830? You can get a 5850 for that price in a good sale. So I relegate this to the rumor bin till something more official pops up.

~$270 is unbelievable high for a supposed Radeon HD 5830.

I think It'll cost somewhere around the mid $200s.

I've always been an Nvidia guy but I'll have to admit ATI is really coming into their own in the graphic's market. I also will be interested in seeing some benchmarking on these cards. Fabe

Radeon HD 5830 Specifications and Priced Revealed - Could launch in March - Softpedia

As you can expect, the Radeon HD 5830 will deliver the performance that will place it between 5850 and the 5770, as it's based on the Cypress LE core. The card will reportedly sport 1280 shaders, 60 texture units and a core speed of 750MHz for the GPU. Featured with 1GB of GDDR5 memory, clocked at 1000MHz, the difference between the 5830 and the 5850 shouldn't be that significant, in terms of performance. When you put the two side by side, the 5850 is featured with 1440 shaders and 72 texture units, while the GPU is set at 725MHz.

this would work in CFX with the 5970 im assuming, this could be a great addition to an already fast rig.....for pennies

the 5830 core wold drop to 735mhz instead of 750mhz.

but the RAM on the 5970 would have to drop from 1010hz to 1000mhz.

these slight changes will make no difference as i'll then have 4,480 SP's churning through GFX calculations...

if nothing else, you gotta love ATI's pricing on mid to low range cards.

An early listing of the card, according to Fudzilla, indicates that the GPU will be available for €215, but that will certainly change once the card gets its official debut. That could be around March, with the cards expected to ship later this month.
Woohoo!

ATI has really been flooding the mid-low range market lately but i have to wonder if having so many cards avaible in the same series set won't cause confusion and hurt them. i have enjoyed that they are getting back into the high end market as well but i would like to see some more work put into the crossfire platform.

Is that 1GB GDDR5 128-bit or 256-bit? It doesn't say and that makes a major difference.
