Expert Review

8 October 2010
  • Excerpt: A good-looking, tweakable high-end gaming card, the EAH5870 offers some nice features over a standard HD 5870 board. Just brace yourself for major fan noise if you push it to its limits.
  • Pros: Easy overclocking features, Understated good looks, Deluxe packaging and bundled DirectX 11 game
  • Cons: Still can't match Nvidia GTX 480 in most tests, Beefed-up fan is incredibly loud at maximum speed

ASUS EAH5870 V2 STALKER Edition Video Card Review

30 August 2010
  • Summary: ASUS is back making another play for your hard-earned upgrade money. This time, ASUS have brought out the EAH5870 V2 STALKER Edition, a Radeon HD 5870 with an improved cooling device. Does a bundled game and improved cooling device make up for its $100 price premium?

ASUS EAH5870 V2 STALKER Edition Graphics Card

OverClock Intelligence Agency
11 August 2010
  • Summary: Although nearly a year old already, the Radeon HD5870 is still ATI's top performing single-GPU card, at least until the 5890 comes out. In the meantime, manufacturers have been redesigning cards with upgraded coolers and better power handling capability, trying to stay competitive with nVidia's...

[Review] ASUS EAH5870 V2 1GB

9 July 2010
  • Conclusion: We did not have a decibel meter handy at the time of testing. However, you really don’t need one because there is a definite point where you will start to notice the fan. We have found this line to be at just about the 55% mark.

ASUS Radeon EAH5870 V2 Video Card

Benchmark Reviews
18 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The ASUS EAH5870 V2 easily met or improved on the basic performance levels set by the reference cards. The availability of software voltage control allowed an easy 18% increase in clock rates, with no loss of stability or extreme temperatures.

  • Cons: SmartDoctor software inferior to ASUS iTracker2, No software voltage control for memory, Fan noise very unpleasant at 100%, Brush fibers left on card after cleaning process, Extreme Design features not listed in published materials

Asus EAH5870 (Asus 5870v2) Voltage Tweak

24 May 2010
  • Conclusion: We like the Asus HD5870 for a few reasons. The oversized fan keeps it up to 17% cooler at stock speeds and we all know the cooler electronics run at the longer they live. We like the MSRP at $429 because we’ve seen factory overclocked cards at $499 that are nice but at a $61 dollar savings this card...

ASUS EAH5870 Video Card Review

25 October 2009
  • Summary: Today we look at ASUS’s brand new, voltage tweakable and highly overclockable EAH5870 based on AMD’s new ATI Radeon HD 5870. With the ability to increase the core voltage we cannot wait to see how high it will go, but first we must see how it compares to its rivals in some of the latest and most...

ASUS EAH5870 CrossFire

23 September 2009
  • Summary: Radeon HD 5870 is without doubt, the most exiting thing that happened to consumer graphics in H2 2009, so far. While as a single graphics card, it lived up to its target of coarsely matching the performance level of a dual-GPU accelerator from the previous generation, in a pair it offers the kind of...
  • Pros: Blistering performance at high resolutions, Support for DirectX 11, DirectX 10.1, Some things just look better in pairs™, Low idle power consumptions of each card makes overall idle power draw comfortable, Excusably quiet in idle, GDDR5 memory, Support for software based voltage control, Support ...
  • Cons: Not meant for resolutions lower than 1080p, Requires a CrossFire supportive motherboard with two PCI-Express slots, At its high price, it loses competiveness, In a pair, HD 5870 heats up the case pretty bad, DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while, No support for CUDA / PhysX

Asus EAH5870 Matrix Platinum: 2GB rekordman v testu

19 September 2014
  • Summary: Pokud šlo Asusu o výhru v souboji nad jedním ze dvou nejvíce nenáviděných rivalů, MSI, tak se mu to povedlo. Matrix Platinum je lepším Radeonem HD 5870 než Lightning. Jestliže Lighning stojí přes 11 000 Kč, pak Matrix Platinum ještě asi o 1000 Kč více.
  • Pros: + možnosti nastavení taktů, profilů, napětí, časování a sledování všemožných hodnot v iTracker 2, + účinný chladič (nízké teploty, teplý vzduch ven ze skříně, vcelku tichý v desktopu, …), + délka 27 cm; vzhled a podsvícené logo potěší u prosklených bočnic a PC mimo skříň, + 2 GB videopaměti se př...
  • Cons: – vysoká cena, (ne)dostupnost, – v zátěži dost hlučná karta, – využití druhého gigabajtu paměti je pořád vzácné, – jen standardní paměti (a jejich slabé přetaktování), – méně komfortní odečty napětí než u Lightningu
