I'd wait for the 5890 :D so far great revolutionary results, but still a bad price! Have to wait til Nvidia comes out with dx 11, then its shopping spree.

Yup. HD 5850 CF is roughly $500, and it snacks on MARS. If you have a 2 slot mobo that supports CFX, consider HD 5850 CF over a GTX 295.

Wait for 5890, what says 5890 will EVER come ?

They already got a bigger core than they planned.
High clock speeds.
5890 would be 32 NM perhaps :p i can see no other card that would be 5890. :p

I would not bet on a 90 card again, it was something ati used to fight GTX275, and managed to beat them to their own game ;D by a week

Hexus has speculation on the 5890 (a few days old):

Ready for a spell of Monday-morning speculation? Good, 'cause our sources tell us that AMD has a Radeon HD 5890 in the works.

We're told the card will be a single-GPU solution, and judging by the nomenclature, it should become AMD's quickest.

Speculation suggests that AMD will unleash a dual-GPU variant - the Radeon HD 5870 X2 - shortly after the launch of its 5000-series products, but a time frame for the Radeon HD 5890 remains unknown. Conjecturing somewhat, the card is likely to feature a faster-clocked RV800 GPU and we presume it'll slot in between the Radeon HD 5870 and Radeon HD 5870 X2.

The news should come as no surprise considering that AMD previously usurped its Radeon HD 4870 with the faster-clocked 4890. Nonetheless, a potential Radeon HD 5890 is something to bear in mind for those planning on getting their hands on AMD's soon-to-be-fastest single-GPU solution, the Radeon HD 5870

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
How the frick are otehr sites running GTA4 at 50 draw distance and maxxed settigns on 1GB cards? At max settigns I can't go over 40 as it just limits me, and shows 1099MB vmem use at that setting.


Are they full of shit, or just special enough to remove texture load and other memory hogs with their minds?

thanks for the review wizzard, with the 5850's do you think at some point the disabled shaders can be re enabled like they did on the old ati 850 cards and does gputool work with the 5800 series cards yet
thanks

Question about performance percentages.

"To create this graph we took all performance results of the five resolutions we tested, threw them together and calculated the relative performance of each card, compared to our review sample. In a sixth graph we also combined all tests in all resolutions to calculate the total relative performance of the review sample."

My question is: Do you work out the percentage performance of each card at each resolution for each game first and then average the percentages? Or do you add up all the FPS and divide by the number of tests?

The reason I ask is that if the latter is so, the data will be unfairly bias towards lower resolutions and games with higher frame rates. The former would be better as it would normalise each resolution and each game before averaging.

yes we normalize each test before adding them up

By the look of the charts,the 5850 is the card to get.It performs on par with the gtx285 and it's cheaper (U$299 vs U$339,i think).
