Putting together these value comparisons is harder than it looks. Oh, sure, looking at our overall value graphs and making broad generalizations is a lot of fun, but it can be quite misleading. You've gotta keep the hidden variables in mind. If this...

So what conclusion can be drawn from todays testing?Firstly I'm sure a lot of you have come into todays review with a preconceived notion of exactly what card you'd like. In previous times the general consensus was to purchase the highest priced...

The card at a glance For our tests, HIS sent us their Radeon HD 5850 H585F1GDG. It's not really an original card, since it uses ATI’s stock design. It's the same size and has the same cooler and clocks as a standard Radeon HD 5850. But...

Two HD 5850s are definitely better than a single card in almost every game. To take advantage of two cards of this magnitude you almost have to turn up FSAA to 8x and AF to 16x as performance with 4x FSAA is nearly CPU limited on a Core i7 920....

Summing up today’s test session, we have to admit that the Radeon HD 5850 is going to be the only real opponent to the Radeon HD 5870 until the arrival of the next generation of graphics cards from Nvidia. In fact, it is such a dangerous opponent that...

Widely overlooked and quite often unavailable in retail at launch, the less powerful Radeon 5800 series card, the HD 5850 showed us today that it is no pushover. Despite sporting fewer stream processors and markedly lower clock speeds than the HD...

With the Radeon HD 5800s, AMD has opened the ball for the DirectX 11 generation of graphics cards, or rather Direct3D 11. On the menu, Cypress, a new GPU that offers full support for the new API, is engraved at 40 nanometres and...

After running the Radeon HD 5850 through an assortment of tests, a distinct trend emerged. Save for a few instances (namely in 3DMark Vantage and L4D), the Radeon HD 5850 performed right on par with or just ahead of the GeForce GTX 285. The Radeon HD...

“For those of you looking for the above and a repeat of the RV770/GT200 launch where prices will go into a free fall, you’re going to come away disappointed. That task will fall upon the 5850, and we’re looking forward to reviewing it...

Even before literally testing the Radeon HD 5850 we already could have written the conclusion if we wanted to do so. It's a slightly slower version yet better priced graphics card compared to the Radeon HD 5870. It's a little gem really. Price...

AMD has built a product that truly stands out from the competition with the Radeon HD 5800-series of cards. Though we have already reviewed the HD 5870, it and the new HD 5850 are really going to put NVIDIA in a bad position this coming holiday if...

Final thoughts We surmised on the Radeon HD 5870 card's credentials in last week's review, and much of that in-depth analysis is pertinent to the DX11-compliant Radeon HD 5850 1,024MB card.The two high-end boards are seemingly analogous to the...

For $259 the ATI Radeon HD 5850 smacks the competition then laughs. AMD has engineered this series smartly, doing what worked for it with the Radeon HD 4800 series. The Radeon HD 5850 uses the same GPU as the Radeon HD 5870 with some streaming...

The ATI Radeon HD 5850 is 15-25% slower than the Radeon HD 5870 graphics card, but it also is priced 32% less right off the bat. That, my friends, makes it a price versus performance winner!...

Well, there you have it. The Radeon HD 5850 manages to outshine the fastest single-GPU GeForce card overall while costing less, drawing less power, and producing less noise. We wouldn't be surprised to see Nvidia cut prices in the near future, but...
