I am loving the competition from far and wide. That brings a lot of new features at much competitive prices. Competition insures that customers are always going to get the best deal. refinance mortgage

The faster memory gives the 5870 overall memory bandwidth of 153GB/s and thats good :)

I think both ATI and nVidia are equally good, nVidia is curently developing the Pshyxs and ATI is working ont the infinity eye, multi monitor system. If there were some way to use both nVdia and ATI imaagine the result and the future of games. Jerico at web hosting reviews.

I dunno how much they cost in the beginning, but I was able to grab an XFX 5870 for around $370 plus tax in a sale last month at Newegg.

I've been out of the video card market for several years but am looking to buy again sometime in the near future. Has this card dropped dramatically in price since this review was written?

I think my ATI 4870 Graphics Card is good enough and still the fastest. Don't upgrade if you have an ATI 4800 series card, wait for 2014 or something and get a new computer then, with a good new processor and video card. I don't think anyone would ever get the 5870 since there will be a better model in the future.

1337-n00b

Yes, I typed right.  I am an <em>ati</em>, not an <em>amd</em> fanboy.

Ever since the 4870 x2.  It rocked.

So, nVidia, take your power-hungry desktop cards that require 1000-watt PSUs and only run on older tech, with massive, monolithic design, and shove 'em where the sun don't shine.

:-P

My vews will only change if they can get out something as cheap and efficient and fast as a Radeon.

And do it before the Radeon gets even better.

ATI to nVidia:  you are STILL obsolete.

 

it's pronounced ELEET NEWBEE.

and it means talks like a n00b, knows like a 1337.

As opposed to a 1amma, who thinks like n00b, talks like 1337; better a 1337-n00b than a 1amma.

Oh I'm so pumped for this! By the time Diablo 3 comes out this should be in the discount bin for $45 and all mine, all mine! Muhahaha! Smokeless Cigarettes

I hope the 5870 available at Newegg.ca stays available. The last one was probably delisted due to both TSMC's awful yields and the cretins that decide to run a quad-Crossfire setup with a crazy-limited card.

so what is the real difference between the brands of the 5870 card? diamond sapphire asus xfx .....

Similar to the differences between various Cola brands.

5870s are becoming more and more available at newegg, they have been there for much of this past week.

Below is my 3DMark Vantage score.

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dmv=1151992     <-Verified by Futuremark.

Thats the Intel 965@3850Mhz and count them 2 8800GTX ACS3's SLI and they are almost 3 years old !

Almost match this cards score.

Yes my two 3 year old card against 1 almight powerful ATI card.

Sorry, I'll have to pass on this one !!!!!!

And yes I beat the AMD Phenom II 940 X4 overslocked to 6.1Ghz CPU score with an

Intel 965@3.2 by 10k.......

EVGA send me your GeForce GTX 285 Classified 01G-P3-1190-TR available at zipzoomfly.com for $389.

And I'll beat that ATI 3DMark Vantage score.

3DMark Vantage scores are a joke.  NOT real world, never have been, never will be. I can show you countless articles, reviews, benchmarks showing negligible 3DMark score differences in machines that, in real world (i.e. actually playing a game, real in game benchmarks) comparisons don't even come close to each other.   If you're just looking for numbers on paper, by all means, read 3DMark Scores as the gospel truth.  But if you want to know how your system performs in reality, throw those scores out the window.  I guarantee you, your dual 8800GTXs won't hold a candle in 32-64 player full detail multiplayer gaming as the 5870 will. Not...even...close.

You can't do reviews on cards that don't exist. And as i've proven by searching the internet, clearly this card does not exist, it's just a hoax that ATI came up with for publicity. DUH MaxPC how could you not see through this one. Just to sell the lie they made a single card and sent it to you, how could you be so blind.

avatar

JohnP

     Is there really a new card out there by ATI? I think that I have a better shot at photographing a UFO than I do buying one of these cards in the next 6 months. One sick company to "release" a card and never put any in stock anywhere. What is this, a Wii or something?

avatar

altair31

How could you be so dumb as to think MPC would review something that doesn't exist!  Also, how could it not exist, since it's in my gaming rig!  Sorry, I probably went overboard there, since likely you are some fanboy.  As for be, I just want pure power.

avatar

Hitachi

I was just making fun of the fact that this card is impossible to find in stock. Which is keeping me from buying one.

avatar

Taz0

And a pretty obvious joke at that. Now who's the fanboy, altair?

avatar

Xylogeist

Just tested this against my GTX 295.... Holy hell... The 295 lost... looks like over 70% of your are wrong :) ATI now reigns the land... until the 300 series of Nvidia comes out XD

avatar

sybert

ATI has been owning Nvidia so bad lately. When they release a new GPU it crushes the Nvidia side.

 

And then ATI got owned by their own manufacturing. 

avatar

gendoikari1

All right, fess up. Who has the sole 5870 ever made? Sure, it might kick ass and have DX11 to boot, but it won't do much if there is just one card in existence. AMD's manufacturing progress=fail.

avatar

JohnP

 Notice that there is NO STOCK on Newegg, Amazon, and Zipzoomfly? Lot of good to have a great card if you DON"T MAKE THEM! Is AMD/ATI nuts? What are they waiting for, NVidia to catch up? Idiots. Never announce a new card unless you can deliver. Otherwise, you get folks forgetting about all the good publicity this card has gotten.

UPDATE: Well, One card in stock at ZipzoomFly (11-5-09). 20% over MSRP but 1st card I have seen...ANOTHER UPDATE must of had all of one card in stock! Gone in 10 minutes..

Looks like it's beating the #$%^ out of the GTX295 to me.... Guess what happens to the 295 when the X2 version of this card comes out? 

avatar

rrtzmd

...that graph doesn't show a 295 -- it only goes up to the 285.

avatar

Evolyptic

"Nvidia Geforce GTX 295" is on the list. It is the forth one from the top.

This is a carefully worded biased article. This guy is so AMD biased he just happend not to mention the NVIDIA GTX-295. Oh, ooops! we were talking single GPU models. Oh, so sorry. So, how is it king if it can't knock down the castle door? The dual GPU model is still secret hush, hush rumor. Well, it might be if, ah, well, um, NVIDIA hasn't said anything ya know. Could be their not worried? Come on dude. It is not king till it rules the land. Truth is, it's another AMD attempt to catch up. As usual. If, could, should, are words. They don't make the card top the numbers.

avatar

Evolyptic

The guy above you posted a nice graph that shows how the 285 SLI beats the 295 on crysis & this card beats both; Thus, I think your the one being biased & Fanboyish.

Well said Evolptic.

Onyx2291

Well yes, but still, it can keep up on a decent pace at a fraction of the cost. Once the 5970 comes out then it will be a true battle, equal on both sides for classification purposes.

 nVidia does market the 295 as the fastest dual gpu doesn't it?

They are sold out throughout the state of WA.  I found one at *$%#? (Oh, I don't want you to get there before me, I'll uncensor that when I have it in my hot lil hands)

It'll be 400 for the card, and 20 for gas to get there and back.  I'll take it though.

The 5870 seems like an awesome card from a performance and power consumption standpoint.  However, this thing looks like the Red October and, from what I've heard, is almost as large.  Is this thing going to fit in most cases?  My current case is struggling to accomodate a 9.5" card!

avatar

shaolin95

It is the fastest SINGLE card. It gets beaten by the GTX 295 and even the 4870x2 very often.

Of course if you prefer single GPU and do not care for the game changing experience that is 3D Vision then this is your card.

Oh wow 3D! what is this 1980? I personally dont give a shit about 3D anything, games, movies, popup books..who cares? I'll take my games the way the good Lord intended it. flat. regular. enjoyable.

avatar

DRAGONWEEZEL

Dude... chill.  Flat isn't going anywhere in the next 5 years.  Everyone just bought shiny new plasma and Lcd tv's / monitors.

 

Though I still use an old SGI 3.2 MP monitor.

I went to 3dGameMan.com and they reviewed the 5870, 5850, and 5750 when you only got the 5870. I believe that this is the fastest card but I want to tell high-end gamers (They will need it) and Wii lovers (To suck their money) to buy this.
