Conclusion: The XFX Radeon HD 5830 easily equaled the performance levels set by the engineering prototype we received from ATI. That's important, because each of the AIB partners was on their own during the development process. There's a lot of diversity in the 5830 product mix, something we don't often see.
Pros: Robust, modern power supply design, Unmatched feature set, 1250 MHz Samsung GDDR5 memory, Full 256-bit memory architecture, 1.79 TeraFLOPS of double-precision computing, Free Aliens vs. Predators game, Double-Lifetime warranty, HDMI, (2) DVI-I, and DisplayPort interfaces, Easy to overclock with A...
Cons: Only 1120 Stream Processors, Only 16 ROPs, same as HD 5770, No software voltage control, can limit OC abilities, Stock fan settings make GPU too hot, Stock GPU clock is nearly maxed out, Requires more power than stock HD 5850
Excerpt: You have to give AMD credit for trying to make lemonade out of lemons. The Radeon HD 5830 is the odd duck of AMD’s 5000-series GPUs. The card itself is as long as the high-end HD 5870, and consumes more power at idle than the Radeon HD 5850.
Pros: Good performance; XFX warranty; interesting cooler design.
Cons: Priced too high for the performance; needs more space than a 5850.
Summary: By launching their Radeon HD 5830 Advanced Micro Devices closed the empty spot between Radeon HD 5850 and Radeon HD 5770. Today we are going to talk about one of the mass production solutions based on this GPU. It will be represented by XFX Radeon HD 5830.
Pros: Wide range of supported FSAA modes;, Best Edge-detect CFAA in the industry;, Best anisotropic filtering in the industry;, Supports up to three monitors;, DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0 and DirectCompute 11 support;, Fully-fledged hardware HD video decoding;, High-quality HD video post-processing wi...
Cons: Performance is too low for the price;, Yields to Radeon HD 4890 and GeForce GTX 275 in some cases;, Extremely limited RBE sub-system;, Relatively high power consumption;, No PhysX acceleration support.
Summary: Whether Radeon HD 5830 is faster than GeForce GTX 275 or not depends on the game. From the six games and simulations we ran, Radeon HD 5830 was the winner in three (3DMark Vantage, Crysis Warhead and Unigine Tropics), tied in one (Fallout 3) and lost in two (Call of Duty 4 at 1920x1200 resolution...
Conclusion: There is no denying the fact that the XFX HD 5830 is an interesting product that is marketed towards mass market acceptance. It doesn’t carry the price of the higher end HD 5850 and its performance does surpass that of the HD 5770 which is exactly what ATI set out to accomplish.
Conclusion: Después de una larga sesión de pruebas, la XFX Radeon HD 5830 demostró un desempeño solido para el sector de mercado al que va dirigido, sus resultados fueron superiores a la 5770 pero no por mucho.
Summary: Als die XFX Radeon HD 5830 bei uns in der Redaktion ankam, warfen wir sofort einen Blick in das Innere der Verpackung, denn eigentlich erwarteten wir die zum Start des kleinsten RV870-Chips angekündigte verkürzte Version.
