AMD to launch Radeon HD 5830 card on February 5?

  1. AMD has had the DirectX 11 graphics market all to itself for several months now but it was only recently that the availability of its cards started to improve. With those problems sorted out, and the recent release of a sub-$100 Radeon HD 5670 model, the company has covered almost every possible segment before Nvidia is even out with their first DX11-compatible product. That's a nice position to be in. However, there's still a large void between the $150 Radeon HD 5770 and $300 Radeon HD 5850 waiting to be filled.

    Nvidia did give AMD a lot of time for them to improve "Cypress". I'm just waiting to see how fermi will affect the market.

    Instant price drop on HD 5870 with a knock-on effect down the product line....there, I said it. Bold prediction !!

    Once nVidia starts promoting the fact that the GF100 will leave the HD5xxx series for dead in Ray tracing tech and starts (if they haven't already started) pumping development resouces into RT throught the SDK's and the TWIMTBP program- along with people suddenly remembering that nVidia bought RayScale eighteen months ago http://venturebeat.com/2008/05/24/nvidia-buys-ray-tracing-firm-rayscale-for-hybrid-graphics/ the stampede could get ugly
     
  4. Here's the specs:

    That is the mobility radon chip, which is different than the desktop chip. The mobility 58xx series are actually based on the same chip the 57xx cards use.
