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