At least, the amd 5830 reference design is capable of soft gpu/mem vmod. As its the same as 5870, except for the core..

5830:

5870:

If in some weeks, the price is at -150€, it would be a worth buy.

The techspot review pretty much mirrors W1z's results, putting the HD5830 behind the GTX275 and GTX285 in almost all the tests, it only outperformed them in a very few tests.

The Bit-tech review didn't really have a big enough sample to tell an overall performance, IMO.

now if one could use software to disable sp's and texture units to get us back to the same count as a 5770, we could truly see whether that 256-bit memory bus helps it at all, and if indeed the 5770's are memory starved, from what it looks like already, hell no they aren't.

ATI has Fermi too :-D

The 5830 aka ATI Fermi is the real picture of the ATI 5830 compering to ATI Evergreen lineup of video cards.The 5830, is on pair with 5850 just in terms of power usage - heat on load, same PCB, connectivity and cooling.5830 is 3% - 8% faster than 5770, the best deal at the moment its 5770 and 4890.

5830 is overpriced, hot, buggy and slow it terms of price - performance compared to ATI 5770, 4890 and Nvidia 260.If you need DirectX 9,10 and 10.1 best choice is 4890. For the fans of DirectX 11 best choice is 5770 or 5850.The 5830 is not filling the gap between 5770 and 4890 with current pricing, power, heat, performance and drivers, in turn it creates a Grand Canyon. :laugh:

Yeah, 5830 is a little faster than the 4890 and almost double the price. Almost. Not to mention is consumes more power than the 5870 in both 2D/3D modes. Nothing surprising, since the 5830 GPU is a defective 5850, with faulty transistor disabled.
