ATI Radeon HD 5830 Review: Filling The GapHere we are, barely two weeks removed from the launch of the ATI Radeon HD 5570, and we find ourselves in the now familiar position of announcing yet another Radeon HD 5000 series card. With the breakneck pace (relatively speaking) of Radeon HD 5000 series releases over the past 5 or 6 months, it would be easy to dismiss today's launch of the Radeon HD 5830 as a move by AMD to simply use more marginal Cypress GPUs, thus increasing effective yields, while at the same time sticking it to NVIDIA yet again. But a quick look at the company's 5000-series product stack reveals the other major reason...

WOW ATI has like the own product category with these 5000 cards, this is mainly the top performers, there are as many or more under these, not to mention the 5970. I wonder if there will be a 5990 with two 5870 gpu's and 2 gigs of ram as well as the 6 display capabilities to close out the product line lol.

What they need to do is get over themselves and lower all of the prices on all of the cards right away. They do have an advantage and they're milking it for all it's worth right now,...........at the consumer's expense.

I hope to see NVIDIA get the lead out of their asses and release their new line of cards so the ATI guys are FORCED to lower prices to survive.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I don't know realneil, and I don't mean they should not lower prices as I do. However; with all the activity going on lately at AMD/ATI, I think before long we will see the next release of cards from them. I don't know if as the MSI release shows the next stage in the 5000 series cards with customized releases. Or ATI releasing the next version of there GPU (which in the last couple of year's seems to always happen in early/mid fall), but Nvidia has been making noise lately.

When Intel started announcing there new 6 core ramping up to an 8 core CPU, ATI made pre-releases in announcement form there 8-12 core CPU's. Also regarding GPU development specifically, GPU development runs 3 years prior to release generally. However they just started talking about there new board and co-processing technology, as far as AMD/ATI goes this has happened every 1 or 2 years as of late, and is directly followed on the second release of this type or shortly there after, with a GPU.

dear HH,

it would be much appreciated if you could do some crossfire benching...

 

for example, i bought a 5770 because the 5850 was unavailable, out of stock, and over priced.

 

so now would it be better to get another 5770 and crossfire it?

or should i get a 5830 and crossfire it with my 5770?

 

or just sell the 5770 and get a 5850...?

 

these are the hard hitting questions we need answers to! =]

 

thanks for the good work as always!

Looks like a winner, just wonder what designs we will see as OEM's are allowed to create their own PCB and fan design? I still think the 5870 is the way to go though IMO.

The mobile 5830 is the card that will be going into the HP Envy laptops. I was pretty surprised by the power profile, this card is par with 5850. For its performance though, the $239 price point seems a little high, especially when the 5770 can be had for much less (I've seen them for ~$140-145).

Agreed. I remember the 5850 was supposed to be $280, instead it sells for over $300. The GTX 480 will correct the prices somewhat, but that's if Nvidia has a smooth launch. Until then, the world belongs to ATI.
