Gigabyte GV-567OC-1GI Radeon HD 5670 Videocard Review

Gigabyte GV-567OC-1GI Radeon HD 5670 Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Gigabyte GV-567OC-1GI is equipped with a large and fairly quiet aluminum heatsink, with a fan and plastic shroud on top. The additional height of the heatsink means the GV-567OC-1GI videocard will occupy two expansion slots instead of just one.

Overclocking a Radeon HD 5670

Overclocking Results:
Stock Overclocked
GPU Speed: 785 MHz 850 MHz
Memory Speed: 1000 MHz 1050 MHz
If you're new to Overclocking and not sure what to do, check out these two excellent Guides for some pointers:
Overclocking the CPU and Memory
Overclocking the Videocard

Gigabyte's GV-R567OC-1GI videocard ships with its ATI Radeon HD 5670 GPU pre-overclocked by a small 10MHz, up from 775MHz to 785MHz. The 1024MB of onboard GDDR5 memory runs at 1000MHz.

As always, PCSTATS overclocked the videocard through ATI's Catalyst Control Center using ATI Overdrive. The fan was set to run at 100% from the start and PCSTATS started with the GPU first, pausing to test the results with a quick 3D benchmark before continuing. We take note of any stability problems or artifacts, then list the maximum stable and artifact-free overclocked speed the videocard achieves.

We'll be using ASUS' P5E3 Premium Intel X48 motherboard for these overclocking tests, along with a nice set of Patriot DDR3-1866 low latency memory modules.

Given the ease in which most value-oriented ATI Radeon videocards overclock, we cut to the chase and pushed the memory and GPU clock speeds up as far as they could go. The Radeon HD 5670 handled 850MHz GPU / 1050MHz memory as if it was nothing, 3DMark06 passed without any artifacts or instability. While it doesn't make for a very exciting overclocking section, it's nice to know that economical videocards can easily be overclocked for an additional edge... no matter how small.

Prelude to Benchmarks

The details of how the Gigabyte GV-R567OC-1GI videocard was configured for benchmarking; the specific hardware, software drivers, operating system and benchmark versions are indicated below. All benchmarks for the videocard were run in Windows 7 Ultimate, the reference video cards were tested in both Windows XP and Vista for the DX10 benchmarks.

PCSTATS is in the process of making the transition to a Windows 7 and Intel CPU test platform, so keep this in mind as you scan the benchmark results. In the second column are the general specs this videocard is compared against.

Benchmark results are organized by GPU manufacturer first (AMD/ATI or nVidia), then by GPU generation, and then by GPU class (high end, mainstream, value). This approach provides a clearer view of how performance can differ from generation to generation, and class to previous generation. The product being tested is marked with the red colour bar.
