AMDís Radeon HD 5770 & 5750: DirectX 11 for the Mainstream Crowd
When we were looking at the Radeon HD 5800 series cards, writing a conclusion was rather easy for us. We didnít need to talk about intangibles like Eyefinity or DirectX 11, because the 5800 series brought better performance at better prices for existing games. This made recommending the 5800 series a straightforward thing to do.
But we donít have that luxury with the Radeon HD 5700 series. The value of the 5770 in particular is clearly not going to be in its performance. Compared to AMDís 4870, it loses well more than it wins, and if we throw out Far Cry 2, itís around 10% slower overall. It also spends most of its time losing to NVIDIAís GTX 260, which unfortunately the 4870 didnít have so much trouble with. AMD clearly has put themselves in to a hole with memory bandwidth, and the 5770 doesnít have enough of it to reach the performance it needs to be at.
If you value solely performance in todayís games, we canít recommend the 5770. Either the 4870 1GB or the GTX 260 would be the better buy.
