    Interesting, but the 5770 which costs about 50% more will completely obliterate it.

    do you get 50% more performance as well? :)
    Plus there are still alot of people that game @ 1280x1024 and this card will suit them perfectly.

    Saw this earlier today. Any idea if there will be a review of it up here in TPU ? I'd love to see a review here, since the reviews here are top notch.

    If the price drops on it a bit, then the HD5670 will be a relatively worthwhile buy for a HTPC to give it gaming capability. Power consumption is low and it packs quite a punch for its price. The best part is that it has support for three monitors. I might get one of those for my second rig just to get rid of the second video card I am running there for the extra monitors.

    Well, assuming that the card is about $100, and 5770 is about $150

    According to the reviews, 5670 is about the strength of a 9800GT and according to W1zzard's charts, 9800 is about 70% of 5770, so its almost a linear scaling, 5% towards 5670's favour though. I would agree that 5670 is going to be more widely adopted.

    +1 on TPU review for 5670, its will be very comprehensive.

    How does this card sit price wise in the US in relation to the 5750?

    To me it seems the 5670 is better than the 9600 GT but not by a whole lot and only beats the 9800 GT in syth benches generally.

    if it comes out at a decent price (~£60-70), which is likely considering hd57xx prices, it'll be a killer card. Considering it does beat out the 4670 fairly well (+50% in dow2 and crysis), still doesn't require pci-e power, and includes dx11. I can see it selling bucketloads, i'm assuming it handles blu rays quite well too.

    I'll definitely be looking into this card when i next build a computer for someone (unless it's a true gaming machine).

    Overall i have one thing to say: bye bye nvidia's mainstream.

    If they made a 1GB version it'd be perfect for a HTPC.

    They pulled the review out :(

    Nonetheless, this will be a great laptop chip.
    I hope it gets as many design wins as the mobility HD4650.
