The name of this card is misleading. It's in fact closer to the mid than high-end. Nevertheless though its performance levels mean it is best reserved for mid-resolution screens, it does retain certain advantages: DX11 compatibility and reduced heat...

RadeonAMD's new ATI Radeon HD 5830 is beast of a card. Straddling the line between the HD 5770 and the HD 5850, it manages to deliver most of the performance of the big brother without stomping all over the HD 5770. The full partner customized...
