HIS HD5770 1 GB Graphics Card
 

 

Conclusion


PROS 
  • Price
  • Overclockability
  • DX11, so it should be a decent purchase with the future in mind
  • Decent performance
  • Thermal properties


  • CONS 
  • Value (the older generation cards offer similar performance, with a lower price)
  • Availability?
  • Award
    Silver Award!


    Well is this a product which everybody just has to get? Not really. While it does post some nice scores in our benchmarks, they are not as blistering fast as we could have hoped. Sure, as the mid-range card, you really cannot expect it to beat every last generation card out there, especially when some of them cost many times as much as this one.

    All in all this is one of those products, which sits in a fairly tough spot. On the other hand you can buy the HD5770 and be prepared for the future with DX11 (which I hope gives more than DX10), or you can buy an HD4890 or something equivalent for a smaller price, but the same performance in most cases.

    Nonetheless I think that especially if you're considering to upgrade your computer right now, this is one of the graphics cards to think about. It has decent power consumption paired with nice performance.

    • I do like the technical side, but I think the card itself looks horrible :D And to be picky, the ATI CCC is also not good, also still having a grudge against ATI for the Linux driver support and cutting elderly products out of the already limited support list.

    • Heh... Well looks are always something you can argue about. In my oppinion this is a great way to go, as the shiny plastic cards just don't rock my boat.
      I personally think that CCC has functioned decently for some time now. On the otherhand, I rarely have to touch the whole suite.
