Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2010-08-03

The RADEON HD 5670 from AMD represents a very nice addition to the 5xxx series, features DirectX11 support and does not need an extra power connector to function. The card was aimed from the beginning against the GT 240 from Nvidia, let us find out if it stands a chance!

  • With the help of the GPU-Z 0.4.4 utility, we can extract lots of information regarding the video card clocks,memory type, pixel and texture fill rate and so on:

    I have used the Everest Ultimate Edition utility to find out the ATI PowerPlay pre-defined clocks and some more information regarding the GPU Code name, Part Number or BIOS Version:

    With the same utility, we can find in-depth information regarding the GPGPU capabilities:

    To find out the IDLE and maximum temperatures, I have used the Furmark utility, with the Stability Test in “Xtreme Burning mode” and let it run for about 15 minutes. To record the temperatures, the GPU-Z utility was used, thanks to its Sensors monitoring tab. The recorded room temperature at the time of testing was 28.7 degrees Celsius:

    In IDLE mode, the card remains very silent, but after 15 minutes with the GPU at 100% load, the cooling system starts to be heard, but all within acceptable levels.
