Is it only me that think the heatsink looks the same as the one used for Radeon HD 4770? (Only different colour and plastic top.)

According to ATI the 5700-series isn't "Midrange" but "Enthusiast".
The 5800-series is "High End", 5600 is "Mainstream" and 5400 is "Entry Level". (The latter two to be released before Christmas.)

I think you're a little conservative in your conclusions. While the GF GTS250 obviously is a bit faster in the tested applications it's still an older design and less suited for future applications. As proven by other testers it also draws quite a bit more power.
The HD5750 also effortlessly supports up to three monitors, which will surely please some users.

I estimate that a GF GTS250 will provide enjoyable gaming graphics for about a year from now, while a HD 5750 will last a bit longer. (How much longer might depend on how fast D3D12 is implemented.)

Cheers
Olle

Seems to be.. but both are absolutelly ugly

I'm claiming the Silicium God to send us some IceQ and Vapor-X 5**0 cards.

It seems that he's listening

Hello Olle,

It is difficult to match market segments with video cards, because one manufacturer may use certain labels and the other other labels, with both meaning the same.

In the past we used to have only three classes: low-end, mid-range and high-end. But since both manufacturers are releasing 300 video cards at the same time, they have to create new labels...

We still prefer to use the traditional classification.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

I just thought i would bring this to your attention, since when does the 4850 use gddr5.
From the article "Radeon HD 5750, like Radeon HD 4850, uses GDDR5"

Obviously a typo, should read 4870.

Thanks, corrected!

Gabriel.

Default Transcoding Performance

Hello. Thanks for another great read.

It's understandable that graphics cards are mainly for gaming, delivering FPS at acceptable levels of detail. However, as technology has progressed lately, ATI and nVidia have found more uses for their GPUs. How about having cards from both manufacturers pitted for transcoding? I've seen reviews of Badaboom and AVIVO, but the articles are quite dated already. It'd be nice to see an update on this front.

Also, I think one other thing going for ATI cards is their 7.1 over HDMI capability, an advantage long held by ATI and only now being adopted by nVidia with its GT240 cards.

Thanks for the suggestion.

We never reviewed GPGPU applications such as Badaboom because their use if very restrict (I mean, how many programs using this technique are out there today? Half a dozen?). Since we are a website targeted to the average user (or at least, we try to be), we believe this kind of test is more in track with websites targeted to early adopter, which are not. However, with DirectX 11, which main new feature is GPGPU support, this technique will reach the mainstream market, it is just a matter of time. As soon as this happens, we will start also evaluating this feature.

Thanks once again for the time posting your ideas,
Gabriel Torres
