HIS Radeon HD 5800 Series Graphics Cards Listed

American retailer ZipZoomFly.com has listed one of its first ATI Radeon HD 5800 series products, these ones from HIS. Both the HIS HD 5870 1 GB (H587F1GDG), and HIS HD 5850 1 GB (H585F1GDG) stick to AMD's reference board design, and sport a unique "sword" sticker theme compared to the manga characters used by another popular AMD partner.

Both accelerators are DirectX 11 compliant, and support ATI Eyefinity technology to connect to three display heads with 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. Connectivity options include two DVI-D, DisplayPort, and HDMI with 7.1 channel audio. While the HD 5870 has 1600 stream processors, clock speeds of 850/1200 MHz (core/memory), the HD 5850 has 1440 stream processors, with speeds of 725/1000 MHz (core/memory). Going by ZipZoomFly's pricing, the HIS HD 5870 1 GB is priced at US $399, while the HIS HD 5850 1 GB stands at $299.

Sweet, cant wait to get one. It's funny both those items are listed as out of stock, they must have wanted to be first out of the gates with one up.

HIS FTW :rockout: Love the look of the cards. I'll probably go HIS again like I did with my 3850 and 4850.

I'm still waiting to have to Crossfire them!

I have two HIS 4890 I've been using since June 2009, the 850 core clock speed models, with rebates (that I did get) paid less than $150.00 each. From the day I installed them, they were OC to 950/1100/40% fan and have never broke 61degrees Celsius, producing very impressive frame rates at 1910x1080p with high settings , using Futuremark Vantage, Crysis, Far Cry 2, etc. I think the best benchmark I have came the day I sold my evga GTX 295 because of 4890!
My name is bcp, and I am a Nvidia-holic, but I'm in recovery thanks to the ATI 12 step program!

This is probably a dumb question.

Why are the PCI-E connectors on the two different?

I'm tired of CGI rendered product shots. Show us the real thing!

Being able to drive 3 monitors is a great thing! Main display and two sidebars... and USEABLE in gaming!

Please tell me you are kidding...

(I suggest you copy/paste the image into irfanview and zoom, look carefully at the PCIe socket, also look at the render error on the 5870 where the holding screw is floating midair and is reflecting on the PCB surface... and also the sticker that magically crosses the crevasse, as Bjorn_Of_Iceland noted... and the blank serial number stickers...and the lack of any reflections from inside the cooler exit grill...the pure matte black case being identical to the balck sticker on the fan... the 100% uniform (perfect from infinity) lighting reflection on where the casing bends 90°, the HIS sticker merging at the fan end onto the plastic case with zero thickness or shadow... yada yada the list goes on).

It's a picture. Even if it's a CGI render, the real thing is not going to look any different. Nitpicking ftl.

It's gonna be a struggle resisting the charm of these cards until nVidia brings out the big guns... not that I want one, but the prices are TOO HIGH now. Grrr goddam stupid nVidia not being ready when they should have been.

nV could still be competitive (in the mid-upper) with existing GTX260+ if they could get a die shrink and power down.

You dont always have to have the fastest card to be competitive, but you need to have SOMETHING that the non-extreme enthusiast wants... ie. cool, quiet, low power, feature set, but still high performance.

The 4770 was an extremely interesting card for just these reasons and very popular.

If nV could pull the GTX260+ at 4770 or lower power, then they would have a winning product for the mid-market, which, after all, is where the sales volumes are.

I'm looking forward to w1z's review tomorrow to see just how powerful and efficient these new ATI cards are... and if nV has a hope in hell of keeping up.

Same here, and knowing me the cooler will get taken off sooner or later too lol. Warranty's more important than a silly assed sticker which you bear see most of the time.
