awesome review wizz. An amazing card, but it costs more than 3 times as much as i paid for my 4890.
It's nostalgic seeing ATI firmly on top again. They havent had a foothold like this since the 9700/9800 era.
Overall a pretty good card, goes to show driver work has been done as she has posted scores above double a single 5870, cant wait for those 9.12's
and It can play crysis!, I bet that was nice to see W1z, ~75 fps @ 1920x1200 with AA, we can finally play the game
any chance you can revisit 5870 CF with these drivers? the performance should be above and beyond this card even.
DAMN good work ATi, things are coming along nicely.
Amazing - about the same idle watts as a 4850...but my 5870 is more than enuf for me even at stock...
that is a sexy review, thanks wizz, im most likely gonna purchase one then apply a WB too it once they release one and oc the crap outta the thing, itll be sexy and overpowered. lol
I thought it would OC more. Oh well, still extremely impressive and well beyond my expectations.
Finally a good reason to spend my deployment money...THANKS ATI!
Nice to see that it is a winner in just about every test, and really pulls its weight at higher resolutions. Crysis 2560*1600 4xAA = 46.7FPS.
Also nice to see that it can stay in the mid 80s temperature wise. Wonder if that can be noticeably lowered with a higher fan speed.
I hail from a cold place. It was 7F last night.
This plus a waterblock for me would be awsome.
Now is there any way to get a GTA4 screenshot at max settings? And mebey a benchmark........
the crysis bench..
Moar? Sure: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/Radeon_HD_5970_CrossFire/
we need another breathtaking games to kill the GPU
I will answer it once and for all. "Does it play Crysis"....."Yes Motherf---ker. It will stomp a mud-hole in Crysis and walk it dry."
This is the new beast and that is one huge card. Floored by performance, and really price isn't that bad. About what I expect the GT300 to come in (mebbe more along their dual gpu price) I can wait for prices to come down in a year. Awesome review!
wow, it's really monster card, i can't say anymore.
i really want to buy it, even if i must sell my soul to the devil
Sold, I will call Lu about that offer and his people will call your people.....and kill them....you may want to look for new people while you are dicussing this deal.
It smashed crysis to pieces!
Even playable at super high res.
so when i can get this card from Lu
do you think i can get air conditioning in hell, it's really hot in there
how about a direct comparison between the HIS and this one, see if clocks, or quality are different as of performance numbers.
304w load doesn't make it any cooler either...
Damn. That is awesome. Need to start saving.
Can´t wait to get my hands on one of those.....
Did i say one ? i want 10
kickass review m8´s
welp I just Poped one in my pants reading this..I have been waiting for this card to come out for awhile now. I want!
