    Without making too much noise, PowerColor introduced a pair of new cost-effective ATI Radeon HD 5800 series graphics cards, the PowerColor HD 5830 V2 (AX5830 1GBD5-DHV2), and PowerColor HD 5850 (AX5850 1GBD5- DH). The two are based on a new common PCB design that's shorter (10.4"), and uses a cost-effective component layout. The cooler also keeps up, it is more compact, and has a simpler heat pipe-based design. Both cards stick to the AMD reference clock speeds: 725/1000 MHz (core/memory) for the HD 5850, and 800/1000 MHz (core/memory) for the HD 5830. As far as connectivity goes, the HD 5830 V2 lacks one DVI. While PowerColor did not give out pricing details of these two cards, one can expect these to be priced on the lower side, with much more flexibility for the company to lower the prices further down in the future.

    What's with these cards?T hey still having some kind of innovation to those cards... BTW, I like the red color scheme off the 5850, but the green colored 5830 is a bit out of place...

    Its good for the average person tho that won't O/C. I hope that they can get the 5830 down to under $200 here in Canada, as I may buy 1 then....

    Yea, for the ppl that won't OC too much (to up volt), this is cheaper and probably cools better. Might be a good choice if you can find one priced low enough.

    That green on the 5830 though :wtf:

    The people who this is marketed to thing "OC" means "original content" vs. "overclock".

    I would love to see a review of either of these, if the price is right they could be very good cards but i would never want to buy one before taking a look at the naked card (one thing i love about the reviews here i get to see the actual card and the cooler properley unlike most sites) as i would like to see if they have cut costs by cutting down on components.

    I'm kind of curious if the bios could be flashed for a higher voltage, if it is possible i'm sure powercolor would proberley not be to happy with you flashing a review sample so i geuss that will be left to an overclocker on a budget that would hopefully post their results somewhere on the net.
