Few benchmarks 5770 vs 5850

Just a note, I play @ the full res of my monitor 1920x1080p and never once did the 5770 hiccup on CODWaW. On another note I got the Sapphire and it did NOT come with DiRT2 and I was told by Sapphire customer service that only newegg carriers the model that has DiRT2 in the box. However that card is $20 more then what I got mine for. Another note, the 5850 is an XFX...

I think you should put the min FPs in the graphs too, like xBit do.
It would be a nice add 'cause it can show if the game is playable or not.

I like these quick results you attached :toast: It really rocks to see that on stock hd5850 isn't that much of better chip for dx9/dx10 based gaming than hd5770. And even in that Heaven quasi dx11 demo hd5850 only scores about 25% better than it little sis hd5770.

Only new bad thing is this fud TSMC faces 40nm yield issues once again. It'll really delay competition to came up with G300 chip, and prices go down. But i cant really figure out does TSMC always lie when they firs had 30% yield than 65% in August so they now end up with 40%. I believe it's just for sake that GPU card manufacturers could rise up prices cause it's pretty upturn-downturn economy and they didn't expect so huge demand for high-end graphic chips from crazy gamers :D And there's opportunity to make even bigger profits. Especially if we see how ATI put the hefty price tag on HD5870.

Yes I read that article about the yeild issues. Who knows though if ATI even ordered enough to begin with with the global economy the way it is. A lot of large retail companies here in the US are not stocking as much as not to get stuck and have to discount... Simple macro economics to keep supply low and demand high. Check this article out, http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/16183/1/ so with that said did they plan it? Who knows, some could say yes others no way...

Thanks for the compliment on my benches. Not as in depth as W1zz's thats for sure, but I wanted to see real world performance on my machines. Another note, I own a inexpensive watt, amp meter and on the HTPC where the 5770 resides specs are as follows:

Intel Quad 8400
Foxcon x48 black opps mobo
4GBDDR3
Asus sata DVD-RW
ATI HDTV tuner
Sapphire HD5770
Hitachi 160GB HD

300 Watt odd size PSU (mentioned in previous posts) so cannot just replace it but thought about gutting it and putting in larger internals



Running benchs on that rig 3Dmark 06 yielded approx 15k and the max watt peak was 200 with an avg pull of 190 during peak scenes. I think the 300watt is just fine in this rig... :toast:

Yep but somehow i believe they had a looot of 1440SP only working chips on that huge die and with leaky process, and when demand for underpriced HD5850 ($260) let them get rid of huge stock to fill the budget then they returned to advertised price of $299 (well it's still some 20 bucks under). Thy probably had some of 60%-25% in favor of 1440Sp's HD5850 so when they saw huge demand for it and that they'd need to cut down non selling fully working chips to fulfill increasingly shorting pile of HD5850 chips they raised prices. I believe that with starting prices stock came up pretty close 25%-20% numbers with HD5870 doesnt selling as they wished, and after that they need some time to rebin rest of 15% chips to use it in some HD5830 offering while fully functional chips are needed for niche HD5970 debute this month.

btw. It's nice for gaming rig that Q8400. It would be nice to see how it scales beside x4 620 (2.6G) which is 55% of it's price and it's nice to have VT by your side. oth there was some pretty immoral combo deals when i5 came out (end of Sept) with Asus X48 (non ROG/deluxe but E) and Q9550 board for $280. Here only Q9550 cost that much (while it was available) and X48 board cost more than when it was showcased two years ago (~$250) so thats why AMD is mostly better deal over here.

AMD dont have the time to be economic if they have yield issues, maybe by the time the issues are sorted and their cards are widespread on the shelves NVidia's offerings will be out, then with competition AMD will sell less cards anyways.

Just played COD MW2 for 3 hours at the highest settings my Samsung 52" 1920x1080, with the beta drivers I might add, and the card ran FLAWLESS. So quiet and cool. This thing is so worth the money in my book... :toast:

Great review! Really thorough and complete.

I just ordered the 5770. Can't wait to test it and overclock the hell out of it, it's going to be fun to see the difference from my 1900xt, it's starting to be quite outdated ^^ but the main problem is the lack of drivers now. So it going to be refreshing!

But the best part is the price i got. Here in sweden it costs 1599kr (230$) but i got a demo copy for 1040kr (150$) so it's a really good deal!

thats really worrying to be honest, openCL is the next big thing.
unless you know exactly what double precision is, how it works and why you need it you do not need it and it's useless for you

its worrying exactly because i dont know if i'll need it or not. going backwards is never a good thing.

it's proly for factory testing of the card make sure the right volts and clocks are being used before it's sent out for sale

I bought this card today for 140 €. I think i made the right decision.
One of the factors that made me buy this card was this review xD

your only just finding this out now

GPU Cap Capture.JPG

the thing I'm more pissed about is the fact that just like ATI's OpenGL we're stuck with only 256MB of usable texture cache
