AMD Radeon HD 5870 2gb beats HD 5970 in Crysis
We take a look at the Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 TOXIC 2GB just before GTX 480 launches. Let's see how much it beats up on all current competition and conjecture whether it stands a good chance against you-know-what....
The results are not a mistake. A 2GB frame-buffer enables the Radeon HD 5870 GPU to breathe when really taxed. Indeed, it's faster than a Radeon HD 5970 - a card that has to share its frame-buffer between the GPUs.
A near-30 per cent performance increase over a generic HD 5870 is down to more than just clock-speed, clearly.

nice chart, worthless setting to play at, none of these cards offer playable FPS at this setting.
playable setting gives us this:
don't bother with 2gb version
AMD did choose the sweet spot on memory, as does NVIDIA. All those aftermarket cards with more memory are pure marketing, reference design ftw.

I think this card will be perfect for Eyefinity setups. I am looking to build a 3x1 eyefinity (5760x1200)this summer and this card is definitely on my list. But for single monitors yeah it's kinda pointless vs the 1gb cards.
