Medford, Oregon —September 25, 2009, — Smooth Creations a
nationally known system builder that builds custom painted high performance
gaming computers; are proud to announce the Radeon HD 5870 1GB XOC Havoc.

memory and are designed with 1600 stream processors. The HD 5800 Series
allowing upgradeability to four boards. The HD 5870 models boast a memory speed
of 1.4 GHz and a core clock speed of 950 MHz while the HD 5850 GPUs have a
memory speed of 1100 MHz and a core clock speed of 825 MHz.
Uncompromising HD video is delivered via ATI Avivo(TM)
display technology. The latest Blu-ray(TM) movies play smoothly beyond 1080p
with a dedicated hardware video decoder that leaves the CPU unbound to do other

“The Smooth Creations Radeon HD 5870 1GB XOC Havoc was
clocked to kick some ass. We didn’t just want a fast card out in the market, we
wanted the fastest card that could kick the living daylights and bust some
performance records. And that’s exactly what our engineers accomplished,” said
Mario Gastelum, director of product development and engineering at Smooth
Smooth Creations “Unlocked” Radeon HD 5870 1GB XOC
graphics card comes with graphics
processing unit clocked at 950MHz and 1024MB of GDDR5 memory operating at
5200MHz, up from
on reference design ATI
Radeon HD 5870 graphics adapter. The firmware of the board was modified and the
board can be overclocked even further. We also recalibrated settings in the
bios that will allow the
HD 5870 1GB XOC
Havoc to adjust GPU and memory speeds to 3D operations or 2D mundane tasks like
using Microsoft word or excel whereas over clocking isn’t needed.
“Typically the catalyst control center controls over
clocking capabilities, but those capabilities and thresholds are limited by
fixed and conservative clock speeds on the bios”. We unlocked that bios and
released its true potential”, Mario Gastelum.
“The firmware was custom designed to enable end users to go
beyond the normal over clocked speeds and allow them to push their cards for
higher performance via the Catalyst Control Center. The GPU’s custom firmware
has been unlocked to push cards to GPU settings of up to 950MHz and memory of
up 1400MHz,” said Mr. Gastelum.
The Smooth Creations Radeon HD 5870 XOC Havoc comes with a
custom liquid-based cooling system options from Danger Den, which ensures that
extreme overclocking of the product does not affect its lifespan and stability
