Benchmarks 1

Results Analysis

Wow! As you can see from the results above, the HIS HD5870 totally destroys the MSI N285GTX 2G, our previous fastest single GPU. The results are even more astonishing when you consider that the Nvidia card should theoretically have the advantage in Futuremarks PhysX friendly Vantage benchmark. As you can see though this is not the case with the HD5870 easily out pacing the GTS285.

Let's see if this transfers over to our real world gaming benchmarks.

Holy hell. That's one mega GPU. My only concern is that DX10 GPUs aren't vital because of the whole X360 port laziness of devs.

So DX11? Really? Give it a year and I might invest.Quote

Looks like the gtx285 is still the smart money at the moment, considering price/performance-you-really-need. Just have to wait for the price drops

Small grammatical error in the conclusion:

The Mediocre

- The price is expensive for a single core GPU

Should be 'price is high' / 'card is expensive' Quote

Awesome review w3bbo but I was looking forward to an actual comparison against the 4890/70 just for good measure. Quote
