Vantage and Unigine

HIS HD5830  Review

3D Mark Vantage

We wanted to test the 5830 Turbo against the next model up, and the one below, to see how it compares.

In 3D Mark Performance test it keeps up well with the HD5850. If we consider the Overclocked version to be a 5840 (not really but go with it) then the results are almost linear. Excepting the 5770 which is lagging well behind in the graph but still putting up a good fight considering the gulf in price between the two.

As always though the Performance test doesn't really show the true performance, because even a toaster could get a good score. It's once the resolution is increased and anti-aliasing is added that we get a truer reflection.

In the High benchmark you really can see what your little extra money buys with a HD5850, stock clocked remember, but the HD5830 puts on a good showing. Our small 35MHz overclock still gains us 200 points which isn't bad at all. 

Unigine

Zero Anti-Aliasing

Unigine is one of our newer benchmarks and really takes advantage of every last DX11 feature to provide a sumptuous selection of eye candy. Although we've got the resolution up to the max the lack of anti-aliasing allows the HIS 5830 Turbo to give us a good result of 40FPS average. Not shabby at all.

8x Anti-Aliasing

Anti-Aliasing has always sorted the men out from the boys, and it's no different here with 8xAA providing a 10FPS frame drop.

200 to spend on a gpu, but you want it cool and quiet? This maybe just the card for you.

seems like a reasonable card that scales well to the price compared to the 5850, what resolutions were the tests run at,

from the uniengine test im asuming 1920x1200?

I agree 100% with OC3D here. The 5850 would be a better buy.

Too expensive still.

If it was between to 5770 and 5850 it would be a great buy.
