HD 5970 is a big, long graphics card that draws a hefty amount of power and chucks out a significant amount of heat when it is working hard. The 40nm fabrication process has allowed ATi to cram in a massive number of Unified Shaders and the result is...

I can say that all of them copy the reference design. I mentioned repeatedly that newest, very expensive solutions are always made at the same factory by order of the GPU manufacturer (i.e. AMD or NVIDIA), while partners only purchase ready cards and...

The ATI Radeon HD 5970 is a monstrous card in every way, and Sapphire has given its sample a little nudge further. You could theoretically get more performance from two 5870s, but the Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 is a fantastic, if gargantuan, single-card...

Spending more than £500 on a graphics card is a serious decision. When you consider that we thought the HD 5870 was over the top, it will come as no surprise that we classify the HD 5970 as a frivolous toy. But, darn it, what a toy. ®...

To say the least the Sapphire 5970 is a monster. Not only is the card ridiculously long, but also extremely powerful. If you plan on trying to fit this into a mid tower case you can pretty much forget that unless you have a removable HDD cage. Even...

Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 OC is currently the fastest gaming card you can find. Let us recap –Radeon 5970 is a dual-GPU card with two Cypres GPUs, which Sapphire overclocked by 10MHz from the reference 725MHz. The card packs 2GB of GDDR5 memory,...

Given the already superb performance levels of the Radeon HD 5870, the introduction of a dual-GPU solution on a single card featuring two Cypress cores was always going to take the overall graphics performance crown, and that's exactly what the...

Those in the market for the Radeon HD5970 will want a very fast CPU and AT LEAST a 1920x1080 monitor. Even better, grab a nice 30" or three - Eyefinity is a nice addition and, with cheaper 1920x1080 monitors hitting under $200, you could have a...

There really is not a whole lot to say other than there is a new king in town. The Sapphire HD 5970 OC delivers performance far superior to what is currently available in every test run. This is the fastest video card out right here, right now....

Sapphire's name generally gives confidence to an end user as their support and reputation are well known to be one of the best in the industry. They have not failed to deliver again, however we hope...

Quite simply, the Sapphire HD 5970 OC is the fastest graphics card on the planet, offering shock-inducing performance that cannot be touched by any single or dual-GPU card out there. And with the ability to tweak the voltages to overclock this card...

Having a single Radeon HD 5970 graphics card is, in the nicest possible sense, overkill for most people. Our review of the twin-GPU goliath highlights that users need to run sky-high resolutions and image-quality settings to get the most out of the...

There is simply no denying that the HD 5970 is a ridiculously fast card with heaps of performance and loads of potential. It can finally be said that ATI has wrested the ultra high end single card performance crown away from NVIDIA and has done so...

AMD/ATI RadeonHD 5000 serisini büyük oranda inceledik ama bir tane kart kalmıştı: Radeon HD 5970. Aslına bakarsanız o kartı da ilk çıktığı zamanlarda elde etmiştik ama referans...

Schnellste Grafikkarte auf dem Markt AMDs HD 5970 ist derzeit die schnellste Gaming-Grafikkarte auf dem Markt und ein innovatives Stück Hardware. Besonders in Crysis und den Benchmark-Programmen 3DMark und Heaven ist das Leistungspotential deutlich...

In Sachen Leistung geht die Radeon HD 5970 OC-Edition von Sapphire keine Kompromisse ein und scheitert in unserem Testfeld lediglich an einer 3-Way-SLI Konfiguration, bestehend aus drei GeForce GTX 275 Grafikkarten! Auch Nvidias aktuelles...

International Review By Radeon3D on -

Mit Hemlock, den meisten eher bekannt als HD 5970, beweist AMD/ATI eindrucksvoll, dass auch zwei derartig leistungsstarke Chips, wie ein Paar aus zwei RV870, auf einer Grafikkartenplatine kombiniert werden können. Wir legten selbst Hand an und...
