AMD seems to have finally decided on a launch date for its highly expected ATI Radeon HD 5830 graphics card – Thursday, February 25. The new card will form part of the company’s 58xx series cards, all of which have been created exclusively for supporting DirectX 11. The ATI Radeon HD 5830 card has been in the pipeline for several months and expectations have built-up over its release.

Over the last month or two, AMD has been highly active in its graphics card release, especially in the DirectX 11 segment. It released cards for both the enthusiast and entry-level markets and also announced new-technology chips for its soon-to-be-released six-core CPUs. Now it is ready to launch yet another DirectX 11 ready graphics card for the gamers’ market.

AMD has plans of releasing the new cards directly through its OEM partners instead of handling the launch on its own. So hardware partners would be free to release their own custom versions once AMD officially hands the GPUs over to them. The new cards are based on AMD’s Cyprus GPU technology and are clocked at 800MHz core speeds with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

In terms of memory, the HD 5830 would work at 4000MHz speed on a 256-bit interface. The reference cards will have 1,120 stream processors and 56 texture units, with hardware manufacturers having the option to modify both. As with other cards of the 58xx series, the HD 5830 would also fully support DirectX 11 graphics, CrossFireX and Eyefinity.

Partners that have already signed-up for the new card include Gigabyte, Sapphire, PowerColor, HIS, and XFX. Pricing for the new card is however, yet to be revealed.

Need more details on the parts. The GPU loop doesnt look up to much though, you should have bought kustom kit as the zalman stuff is pants for what it costs :(

I love the looks but you rly shouldn't have gone with Zalman
Edit: What's up with the GPU loop? Doesn't really seem to work:p

I had already a costum watercooling for the CPU..Pump from Swiftech , radiator - HW Labs Black ICE Radiator GT Stealth 240 , reservoir - EK Water Blocks Multioption , Temps were fine but I've meet a guy that have a Zalman Reserator XT and the temps that he had were 8º/10º lowers than i've bought the Zalman Reserator XT and i sold the pieces that I had of the costum watercooling.I'm really happy off that,I never regreat what I've done.In general the temps of a exterieur Watercooling kit are lower than a inside costum Watercooling..
For the GPU WC Loop I've bought the Thermaltake Bigwater 760i only for the 285 GTX's SLI,it's a independent Loop..

See it for yourselfs what Zalman Reserator XT is capable

Nice to know you got good temps, everyone else was just abit worried about your possible inexperience. Don't let them put you down, as long as your happy thats all that matters, they should be more positive.
I think in a perfect world we would all have external watercooling taking the heat out of our systems, but visually its not for everyone. So the people goning the internal watercooling route know what compromises they are having to accept inorder for there system to look the way they want.

I personally prefer internal watercooling, but that Zalman kit looks very smart and as you have discovered it performs very well indeed!

Spot on!
