ASUS EAH5870 V2 Review

Synthetic Benchmarks



3D Mark Vantage

You can't mention benchmarks without mentioning the program that has spent over a decade as the king of graphical benchmarks, 3D Mark.

At stock both the reference card and the EAH5870 V2 are close, although the Asus edges ahead. The big thing though is how well it responds to the overclock. Just shy of 21000. Impressive stuff.

Moving onto the more realistic High test these results are repeated, with the overclock striding into the lead and the reference card keep up with the Asus, despite scoring lower on the GPU.




Eye candy like no other, Unigine really sorts the men out from the boys. Both with anti-aliasing and without the EAH5870 V2 performs very well, giving smooth performance throughout the test.

Once overclocked we gain about 6 or 7FPS which is not inconsiderable at all given the detail being pushed around here.

That fan looks a good bit bigger than the reference fan. Is it quiet? I might be looking to get two of those.Quote

Its a bloody good card tbh, voltage tweak, better cooler, still ref PCB for watercooling, great performer. And all for the same price as a normal 5870..... Tis a no brainer.Quote
