Today ATI releases thus the Radeon series 5600. Actually Radeon HD 5650 and 5670 today in specific -- we'll be looking at a couple of these cards. These cards offer a wide variety in functionality but even in the new budget products ATI put in enough transistors to allow you to play modern games well -- if you give them the right circumstances that is. The card we'll be testing today is lined up directly against NVIDIA's GeForce GT 240 products, with the Radeon HD 5670 being slightly faster, DX11 compatible and sure .. ATI threw in Eyefinity as well. We'll test it in-depth and look at Crossfire performance as well.
In this review we'll look at the Radeon HD 5750, ATI's most budget DX11 card available at this time. For the money this is a great performer with some really lovely features as well. We will test the Radeon HD 5750 in single and a CrossfireX (Multi-GPU) setup. It's a product that performance wise positions itself close to the Radeon HD 4850 and GeForce GTS 250 yet now with superior features at an attractive price.
Today we'll test and review the Radeon HD 5850; we'll check both the single GPU performance but also will check it out in CrossfireX multi-GPU mode. This card promises to go neck-to-neck with the 349 USD GeForce GTX 285 in terms of performance. The Radeon HD 5850 however comes with full DirectX 11 compatibility, Eyefinity and some sheer brutal rendering performance in both gaming and compute features. It's everything the Radeon HD 5870 really is, just a slight step slower but more affordable.
