AMD's next step in their Radeon HD 5000 release strategy is the Radeon HD 5770 which is based on the new 40 nm Juniper core. It features 800 shaders and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit bus. Essentially this makes the card perform like a HD 4870 but adds new features like DirectX 11, ATI Eyefinity and reduced power consumption.

This leaves a pretty noticeable gap in the price/performance scale though between the $160 5770 (essentially a 4870 in terms of performance) and the $260-280ish 5850 of about $100, and now there seems to be an even greater gap in terms of performance between the two and nothing really unseating the 4890 as the epitomic $200 video card.

Its a very nice card, with low power consumption and cool temperatures (which seems will be one of the signatures of the 5000 series) but its not as good as some of the early hype would have had us believe. I was waiting to see the benches for this card to decide if I should get a a 5770 and a 5850, and now I think I'll go for the 5850. I do think though, with some time and newer drivers that we'll see the 5750 and 5770 fair better for themselves.

I was just about to point that out. AMD is missing a ~$200 part. Maybe they have plans of price cuts that will bring the 5850 down to just above $200. Or maybe they could release a Cypress part with 1280 (or 1120) shaders?

Too bad this doesn't OC very well. I was hoping the 5750 would be able to hit a huge OC so it would make up for the reduced specs. (4830-esque)

AMD has definately done a good job of lowering power consumption and improving performance per watt ratio on this gen of cards. But again, like Semi-Lobster said, I guess I was expecting a little more. I thought the 5770 would be a step over the 4890 and the 5750 would be about a 4870 or just above it. Because right now you could almost call the 5750 a 5670 (or 5690) or something.

early drivers and bioses usually don't hit big overclocks, maybe it'll get better with newer revisions, isn't that the way it usually is with gfx cards?

Great review! :toast:

That GDDR5 ram is fast.

I might get 2 of these later on when the price comes down. Dirt 2 is cherry on top for this card . :rockout:

i like this card. It's like a DX11 version of the 4870 for around the same price.

I didnt think AMD was/is missing a $200 part...... I was under the impression the 4890 would continue in production for at least 6 months.... perhaps I misunderstood :confused:

Isn't the entire 48xx lineup get eol'ed once all 58xx (except Hemlock) are launched?


Edit:

There's a typo in the overclocking section. I the review it says that on GDDR5, for every MHz real clock you increase effective clock by 5 MHz, where it should say 4 MHz.

mmm not a best buy as 5850...good card but nothing more, it has an insufficient bandwidth that limits too much this card...i hope at least in a future revision with gddr5 at 6 o 7 ghz

The article I read that announced the imminent release of the 5XXX series a few weeks ago did say that the 4 series would go EOL but specifically said that the 4890 would be the last card in the series to cease production which in reality was likely to be some 6 months after the 5 series launch.

AMD/ATI has thier act together. Damn fine offering that accomplishes many things.. next gen, mid pricing, supasses previous gen performance, etc.

Looks to be another superb product cycle :toast:

i've some problem with the forum..if 'm not wrong W1zzard asked to me something,but now i can't see his post :wtf:

We talked about bandwidth...
The 5770 is bandwidth limited because has the same specs the 4890 has, except bus and memory clock; the 4890 has a memory bandwidth of 124,8 GB/s, 5770 76,8...too little, in fact as you can see also in this review: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3658&p=12 performance are often worse than 4870...

I would not expect prices to drop too much before x-mas. Around x-mas we might see some sale styling pricing (10-15% price drop). I am guessing that ATI is waiting to get the next big batch of cypress chips back from TSMC. If they get a lot more full chips (5870 grade) then they can afford to drop prices (5850 down to closer to the $200 mark). If they are starting to collect a lot of 1280, 1200, or 1120 shader cypress chips then they might release that as a 5830. I think it is a waiting game now to see how many cypress chips they get at each binning level.

edit: we should each just make a decision based on the current market. I am happy with the 4890 I bought . It is still at the correct price/performance point even with the 5xxx series right now.

yo w1zz can you change the resolution of the photos in the upcoming reviews to 1024x768? makes more sense for most people have 1280x1024 or higher screens, thanks :)

I think the 58xx series, specifically the 5850 will fill up the ~$200 range through a very abrupt price drop once Nvidia gets out their GT 300's, and the 57xx series will do the same but with a smaller drop. So they get to exert their dominance while there are no DIRECT competing DirectX 11 compatible cards, and then go to a competitive price-point for their cards once competition gets more...direct. Or they might release a 5830 and still just drop prices for the 5850, 5870, 5870X2 in a smaller scale.

many laptops are still 1024x768. Also all the netbooks and UMPC devices have small screens too. Having a hi-res click link is probably better. The nasty part of the internet aiming at the least common denominator.
