ATI Radeon HD 5770 Crossfire vs. GeForce GTX 470 and Radeon HD 5850
15 June 2010
Summary: Little has changed since the first time we took a look at Radeon HD 5770 Crossfire performance some 8 months ago now. Pricing has remained unchanged, as AMD has seen no reason to drop the $160 US price tag of the Radeon HD 5770, keeping the cost of a Crossfire configuration at a little over $300 US. Furthermore the performance of Crossfire is still just as strong in today’s more modern games when compared to those used for the first round of testing.
Summary: The Radeon HD 5770 performance when working in Crossfire mode was impressive to say the least. Although we are not normally advocates of multi-GPU technology, in this instance it does make sense. The Radeon HD 5770 configuration was able match or beat a single Radeon HD 5870 in almost every game, and costing around 16% less, that is pretty good value.
Summary: Within three weeks AMD has made available their next generation DX11 capable video cards from $109 to $379, before Microsoft’s DirectX 11 is even released inside Windows! Windows 7 will officially launch this month and AMD already has its next-gen GPU technology supporting Window’s latest DirectX API.
Conclusion: Perhaps we were expecting too much, but the Radeon HD 5770 was a little underwhelming in our books. Where performance is concerned, we expected it to be positioned in between the Radeon HD 4890 and HD 4870, but our tests have shown that it was mostly a smidge lower than the HD 4870 1GB editions; which puts it closer to the 512MB edition of the Radeon HD 4870. The Radeon HD 5770 was also no match for NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 275 and GTX 260+.

Conclusion: The results revealed a few interesting observations. Where outright performance is concerned, two Radeon HD 5770 cards in CrossFireX could certainly stand up to a single Radeon HD 4870 X2 and even the mighty Radeon HD 5870. This gives us consumers something to think about because a single HD 5770 costs only US$159, whereas the flagship HD 5870 costs a whopping US$379.
Conclusion: Man nehme einen Grafikchip mit einer guten Energieeffizienz, packt ihn auf ein schwarzes PCB, schenkt dem ganzen dann noch 1024 MB Grafikspeicher und was kommt dabei heraus? - natürlich die ATI HD 5770. Die neue Mittelklasse Grafikarte aus dem Hause ATI/AMD brauch sich nicht zu verstecken, denn auch in aktuellen Games zeigt sie keine Schwächen und kommt zum Teil spielerisch leicht an die GTX 260 oder die HD 4890 heran.
