The appearance of the Radeon HD 5830 is on this occasion something unusual, since, as rarely happens, AMD will release its delivery partners to manufacture the cards from Cypress LE, younger brother of Cypress XT present in For example, the Radeon HD 5870, for this is that when we started this analysis we face that AMD will not make the HD 5830, so technically they do not have this card, but if you need to do to comply with an NDA (Non- disclosure agreement) must have engineering samples to the press, as we are in this case us. Particularity this time, ATI (AMD) has decided to allow its partners to let them use their own reference design from the outset, certainly due to the good experience of different design of Cypress. A little more freedom this time allows them to stand a little easier than the simple reference design.
Apart from that, here are some experiment we did of this card, the opinions are very mixed or even disappointing for some. Indeed, for the sake of money seems to be the common conclusion in relation to the positioning performance of the card in the range announced at € 229 retail price, it's likely that buyers will turn to any alternative graph, except this one, we would like to sell stocks of 4890 that we do not take it otherwise. In the dance of the benchmarks, the HD 5770 works on the feet of the HD 5830.
Not all the color is so ant, AMD in a move that favors us who work against time to comply with the NDA, he used a Radeon HD 5870 PCB and on the total amount of LE Cypress, with its own firmware change support that configuration. As such, this card will show you today will not exist as such in the market because it is hybrid, but all in all performance is identical to the version with the partners because the heart and the memories are the same, only changes support circuitry.
Something else that might change from card to card Is the display configuration. Though we suspect mOST will stick with the standard layout. When ATI 5xx0 series introduced the first card, the HD 5870, it debuted also eyefinitiy new ITS technology, which let's you run up to three monitors phrasal (and event six On Some special cards). To notorially tHEY also introduced a standard choice of oven display connections; Two DVI, one HDMI and a DisplayPort. Any combination of the DisplayPort and Two of the Other connections lets you run up to 1,920 x 1.200 Three pixel resolution monitors for 3D surround gaming. All furnace connections allow output also of digital audio.
To boost the performance of this card, ATI Has the specified chip "should run at 800MHz or over, WHICH IS Actually Higher Than the 5850. The result is it has quite high power figures with consummation stated idle power of 25W and a maximum thermal design power (TDP) of 175W. This compared to respective figures of 27W and 151W for the HD 5850 and 18W and 108W for the HD 5770. Also the card it means clustering Requires Two auxiliary PCI-E power connectors to keep it Supplied with Enough juice. However, power figures thesis Did not quite hold up in Our testing. While the HD 5830 was quite Certainly Consumed bit more power Than the HD 5770, it Remained Comfortably below the HD 5850.
Then looking at game performance, Except For Call Of Duty 4, the HD 5830 we'd have Performs Pretty Much expect - it lies half way Almost desired exactly Between the HD 5770 and HD 5850, with a slight leaning Towards the train. However, in Call of Duty 4, it Seems to really struggle and has only just pips Some settings the HD 5770. Perhaps of more concern is that consistently the HD 5830 falls behind the HD 4890, which was available for around the price when it came out almost desired exactly a year ago. So, if you invested all you're getting for spending around the saami money again is support for DirectX 11 games and lower power consummation, and Frankly Neither of contention are big enough to make it worthwhile.
AMD continues to move steadily with their Radeon HD 5000 and today is the turn of the Radeon HD 5830 card, which many hope that whoever attempts to bury all current mid-range GTX cards to win more market shares and also that near users with deep pockets voluptuous-the-art graphics cards.
