XFX Radeon HD 5670 1GB Review

Multimedia & Gaming Performance

3DMark06

As Futuremarks previous gaming benchmark application, it is getting a little old but remains to be a reliable means of testing a graphics card's capability.

3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is Futuremarks flagship gaming oriented benchmark at present and is considered to be a demanding one at that. Our tests were carried out under the "Performance" prefix.

Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead is a very popular hit and as such was a game that we wanted to throw at our Core i3 530's Integrated GPU. Let's see how well it performs.

 

Crysis Warhead

Crysis Warhead is without a doubt one hard nut to crack, especially at higher resolutions and a dash of Anti Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering. Given its level of GPU dependency, this will be an interesting place to put our XFX Radeon HD 5670 through its paces.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X

Flight Simulator X remains to be a terribly demanding game for it's age. Known for being very demanding on the CPU but also requiring a level of GPU power in the process, we thought it'd be interesting to see how it faired. 

DiRT2

DiRT2 is a very recent race driving game, known for it's Direct X 11 support. Once again, this is a very GPU dependant game and as such will really push the Radeon HD 5670 to it's limits.

A mixed bag of results but generally, but promising regardless. Given it's low stream processor count, it still performs admirably well and it has also shown that games such as Flight Simulator X do not necessarily need a high end graphics card. DiRT2 felt rather choppy however given the resolution that had been applied, it was to be expected. For modern hits, a faster graphics card is necessary.

Just wandering - how does the Microsoft Flight Simulator X FPS graph have a higher AverageFPS than Maximum FPS??

This is usually caused by reviewers who are a tad blind...

This has now been fixed. Good spot

I got my 4670 for $45USD and I needed to replace an extremely outdated x1300 on a low budget. And I made a typo and typed 5750 when I meant 5770.
