Gigabyte GV-R587SO-1GD Radeon HD 5870 Videocard Review

Gigabyte GV-R587SO-1GD Radeon HD 5870 Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Gigabyte's GVR587SO-1GD videocard increases the Radeon HD 5870's core clockspeed to 950MHz, the effective frequency of its GDDR5 memory to 5GHz. This beauty of a videocard uses a custom dual-fan heatsink design for better cooling and takes advantage of Gigabyte's Ultra Durable VGA+ manufacturing techniques.

Videocard Benchmarks: FEAR

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

It's unlikely that you'll be buying a $500 videocard just to play 2006's FEAR, but it is a good way of comparing just how far we've come in raw 3D rendering power. At 1600x1200 the GVR587SO-1GD is about 30% faster than lat year's Radeon HD 4890, and only a few points off of the dual-GPU Radeon HD 4870 X2.

It's also worth noting that the Geforce GTX 480 is the faster card in this DX9-era test.
