it's 9.7 actually. what kept me from giving a 10? it's not the best price/perf wise, the fan could be quieter, it could be available in masses and the shaders unlockable. neither of these is impossible or unrealistic.

Where would it have to be on this chart for you to consider it one of the best price/perf wise?



As good as a 4770, at least?

I think that'd be around $180 or so -- the perfect sweet spot for a 5850.

They won't go near that price until ATI can flush out their 4000 series stock. They would have to seriously discount their 4850's and 4870's for example. Great for consumers, but not realistic profitwise for the company.

Nice review W1zz,As always.
Can't wait till a card arrive with a non-reference cooler and a single 6 pin connector. And Ihope there will be a price cut on this thing :D

Great review: awesome!


I assume you only have 1 5850 @ your disposal, @ the moment, unfortunately :(

I would really like to know crossfire performance as well as temps. If @ all possible, i also would like to know if 2 5850s next to each other and 2 5850s as separated as possible in the motherboard have different temps and, if so, how much.

Is there a crossfire review for 5850s planned? If so, any chance you could also include trifire or even quadfire?

W1zzard is there any advantage besides Dx11 to owning this card over a 280 gtx /285 gtx if you already have one. I'm talking over clocked.

mostly just slightly more performance, cooler temps, more overclocking headroom, eyefinity, better AF, faster 8xAA, and it costs less (but you already have the 285). If you could get $300 for your gtx285 on ebay or something, then you could upgrade and save money.

Ive noticed that no one is reviewing these cards with 8xAA i wonder if theres a reson for this,
The first actual revew of the 5870 i read was benching at 8xAA and it was absolutley smashing other cards

thanks wizzard, the review of the 5850's is just what i've been waiting for and the card overclocks as i expected and hoped and with having the same memory chip as its bigger brother makes it even better and i've just ordered 3 on the strength of your review, shame the extra shaders can't be unlocked, but i think with leaving the rops the same as the 5870 when overclocked i think the difference in 3d scores will be negligible apart from at a very high resolution, but i think overclocked with 3 of these babies it won't make much difference,

whens the brilliant gputool going to be publically available

thanks wizz

I agree with the power consumption, it is kick ass on that. Love the overclocks too. I wish they would unlock their shaders, this really seems to be one area in which Nvidia excels and AMD could learn to use it.

:confused: NVIDIA excels at unlocking shaders? Teach me how to turn my GTX 260 into a GTX 275.

Thats exactly what I was thinking, and Like I thought, IMO its well worth getting these over 5870's, as the memory is the same and should clock to ~1250mhz, and the core with extra volts will do 1ghz, have seen this in a few places now..... I want so bad!

I believe he meant unlock the power of their shaders, as in having 1600 getting beat by 512...(or 800 getting beat by 240 if you want a comparision that is guaranteed)

Of course, he also might have meant unlock the shader clock from the core clock...

I don't think he meant unlock in the way you are using the term unlock.

let me get that for you .. after my döner kebab

how can you eat that?:laugh: i had a severe döner intoxication a few years ago, and since then, cant eat any turkish spices anymore. i want to puke instantly:D

i believe in ati architecture, you have to clock the shaders and the rops equally, the high amount of shaders is needed to operate useable at low clocks

Wow that is expensive, where do you live?
Here it's at 225€, which is pretty nice, but I'll wait until it drops to 177€ which should happen in a reasonable timeframe.
