HIS HD5830  Review

Crysis Warhead

Warhead gives us our first surprise result. Not so much that the HD5770 lags behind, which is to be expected at this price, but that the 5830 using the 10.3 drivers gets such a performance boost from them that it can keep up with the HD5850 and, when overclocked, just sneak ahead. Impressive stuff from the HIS.

NFS Shift

Hmmmm. Not sure what went on here. I was using the 10.3s which give a fair performance boost when compared to the 10.2s the 5850 was tested with. But still, this is such a spanking by the HD5830 that I'm not sure what to make of it.

Dirt 2

With Dirt2 normal service is resumed and the HD5850 returns to the lead. The main thing to note is that the 5770 puts up a much better showing, but we still find the HD5830 gives playable, if not stellar, results.

Metro 2033

Another of the recent additions to the OC3D test suite is Metro 2033. It is very much the Crysis of the current generation providing excellent visuals and average gameplay. In a nice bit of synchronicity the results mirror those of Crysis with the HIS 5830 Turbo giving a good fist of it and running the 5850 close.

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

Too expensive still.

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