    Following a recent exposé of pictures and performance figures of the Radeon HD 5750, another one covering that of the ASUS Radeon HD 5770 has surfaced. Using a test bed powered by an AMD Phenom II X4 945, 4 GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and Windows 7 64-bit, a member of the Chinese PC enthusiast portal community MyMyPC.com put an ASUS Radeon HD 5770 accelerator through 3DMark Vantage Performance preset (to yield its GPU score), 3DMark06, and FurMark (to check temperatures). It was compared to other popular graphics accelerators in (or around) the sub-$200 league, including Radeon HD 4890, GeForce GTX 260, and GeForce GTX 275. While in the 3DMark06 test the Radeon HD 5770 edges past the GeForce GTX 260, with 3DMark Vantage (GPU score), it lags behind the rest of the league, by at least around 1000 points. This gives an indication that as far as performance goes, the Radeon HD 5770 could be comparable to the Radeon HD 4870, at least in these applications.

    Looks like the 128-bit memory interface really crippled it in Vantage.

    Why is the Cpu running at 800mhz? I didn't think that cool and quiet reduced the speed that much.

    I was wonder the same thing, why is it at only 800mhz? and yes that 128 is putting a damper on that score, consider the cpu is running at 800mhz lmao

    From what I see this card isn't much better than a 4870, is this card around the same price as the 4870?

    When idling, Cool'n'Quiet drops the multiplier to 4.00x, and vCore to ~0.9V.

    HD4870 is high-end card, while this one is mid-range. Beside, it supports DX11. I wouldn't buy 4870 over this.

    Very interesting, was hoping it would be a bit faster.

    I know that, but how well will it perform in DX11 games? It may support it, but run like shit :p

    I rather it would run, than it wound't run at all, like 4870. :D

    I don't think so, it's only 15% slower than HD 4890 in Vantage (in 3Dmark 06 all are almost the same), it's a midrange card, and it's very efficient...

    If you compare the Vantage result with the TDP, you will see:

    4770 - 8714 / 108W = 80,7 3Dmarks/W
    4890 - 10327 / 190W = 54,4 3Dmarks/W

    GTX 260 9736 / 182W = 53,5 3Dmarks/W
    GTX 275 11278 / 219W = 51,5 3Dmarks/W

    The 15% difference between 5770 and 4890 in Vantage is in line with the 256 -> 128 bits reduction in mem bandwidth.

    Then, i'ts a very good card, but is midrange. If you are looking for power, you'll need the HD 5870, or wait for 5870x2.

    DX 11 hardware may be out but the software is still a bit aways. By the time DX 11 software is fully up and running there should be better cards at cheaper prices. So at this point they are pretty much the same.

    I expect the cores of these little speed demons to go over 1,1 Ghz

    These new cards have dropped the 4000 series to unbelievably low prices. $125 for base 4870 and $145(before mir gamble)for 1gig ver.

    While I like the idea of DX11, I just can't resist the lure of a 4870. The 5770 should be priced at ~$150 or it won't be able to compete with it's own line up. As pointed out, no benchmarks on DX11 games and it does not perform as well as a 4890. Bit of a gamble to buy this card imo.

    Depending on price, the 5850 could be only $100 more. That is a good chunk of cash more, but may be worth the month to save up for it. Even the 4870 is 256 bit.

    I'm waiting for the 5750...If it's at the same price point of the 4870 and with almost the same perfomance(1 or 2fps of difference in games),then it's a must buy for me.

    based on the battleforge DX11 benchmark for the HD5870 DX11 performs better than DX10 with more features, but yea this card is a gamble, still, if the HD4870 price drops to like 100 bucks I will probably buy one for sure.

    Here's a size comparo between HD 5870, HD 5850, and HD 5770 (no, Jared didn't make this one :D):

    This is a pretty nice card. The 5750/5770 will be ideal mid-range video cards once the drivers mature a bit. And, with battleforge showing frame rate improvements DX11 titles shouldn't pose an issue. However, it still a wait and see approach. In all the 5700 series is living up to the performance expected of it assuming it will be affordable.

    Everyone that keeps comparing the nV cards to the ATi cards keeps talking about the low bus width. It's been low forever guys, several generations of cards in fact.
    Don't you think that the engineers that came up with the GPU of this complexity would figure out the bus width they need by now?:shadedshu
    If it's limiting did you ever figure that maybe it's supposed to do so by their planning?
    *rant complete*
    Sorry everyone, but I had to release that after hearing this age old argument that has all but made my eyes and ears bleed.:mad:

    Lol, I saw that same sentence exactly somewhere else in TPU. Gonna find it and add them to my sig, lol!:p

    Very surprised to see it running so hot in Furmark.


    From what I have seen so far it looks like the HD5770 scales exceptionally well when over clocking the CPU.

    Vantage score and 3dMark06 score aren't bad at all for stock speeds. With some over clocking this card should be able to out perform HD4890.

    What a shame the benchmarking doesnt include a 4770 for comparison. And also, why "only" 3dmark06 and vantage, esp. the 3dmark06 which is probably CPU constrained in this instance. Want to see some real world FPS figures to compare.

    Let's hope w1z gets a card soon, and does a proper review

    I'm very familiar with HD4770 and from everything I am seeing the HD5770 is at least 1.6x better which is right on with the info that ATI is putting out.
    HD5770 is a much better card than HD4770.

    Actually 4870 512mb cards have been $125 for quiet a while now and I have seen a few get MIR's now and then, and the 1gb were about $150 for quiet a while also.

    There's no need for a bigger bus then 128bit on this card since the GDDR5 will compensate that. Its even cheaper to produce a card with just 128bits wide bus. Saying it needs more is kinda stupid. This is not an high-end card. The score looks defenitly good.
