Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Visiontek HD 5870 - Visiontek HD 5870
Mon, January 11 2010 | 9:00AM | PermaLink Feedback?
At Bjorn3D over the years we've seen ATI and Nvidia trade places several times when it comes to the performance crown for single core GPU's. For a while now Nvidia has been ahead in raw GPU power and ATI has been a little behind in raw power, but ahead in DirectX (DX 10.1). With the introduction of the 5870 it appears the crown has changed hands once again and ATI's 5870 in now the most powerful single core GPU around. Having the advantage in not only power but featuring DirectX 11 as well the 5870 has turned a lot of heads. Visiontek was kind enough to send us a HD 5870 reference model to test and we have to tell you it's looking very very good. It's a polished product with full functionality and so far we haven't seen anything that doesn't work 100%. Often early product features have minor flaws you have to work around but in this case the 5870 is a highly polished release. Sporting a new sleek cowling design which strays away from the normal red plastic cowling we've become used to the Visiontek 5870 is a sleek gaming monster you'll have to see to believe.
