XFX's reference based version of the HD 5830 overall a very good videocard capable of fast gaming while keeping costs down. The videocard performs exactly the same as all other HD 5830s tested and this is no surprise seeing it is based off ATI's...

A polished, if pricey, take on AMD's oddball GPU 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...

The 5830 is positioned well in terms of performance between the 5770 and 5850, having DirectX 10 performance almost the same as the 4890 (with the 900MHz clock on the core). Considering that the 5830 has some chip internals disabled, most of us would...

The XFX Radeon HD 5830 leaves a good overall impression. As opposed to the queer HD 5830 we discussed in our first report (it was based on the Radeon HD 5870 design), this is a full-featured product in pretty packaging. It features an original PCB and...

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...

Well now, what a performance! When I got the XFX Radeon HD5830, I expected a mild performer with mild options. Boy was I wrong! The card gives great perforamnce on stock speeds, now this would be great on its own, but this card goes one step further...

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...

Our first look at the Radeon HD 5830 was somewhat tarnished by the unrepresentative performance of the £200+ price tag. It failed to eclipse nine month old hardware like the Radeon HD 4890, and was further frustrated by prices for the HD 5850,...

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...

The interesting part of the equation is always when comparing the older design with a newer design. The HD 5830 is as it is billed to be a card that performs in between a HD 5850 and a HD 5770 card. As such it is a successful product for the target...

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. Stattdessen grinste...

Cuando hicimos las conclusiones de las ATi Radeon HD 5830 ya dijimos que era una tarjeta que no terminaba de convencernos, puesto que era poco más rápida que una HD 5770 y demasiado cercana a una HD 5850 en consumo, precio y tamaño,...

Det finns en uppsjö med speciallösningar för Radeon HD 5830 och här skall vi se närmare på en från XFX. Tanken med denna modell är att få ett prisvärt alternativ mellan HD 5850 och HD 5770. När vi...

Se a Radeon HD 5830 é mais rápida do que a GeForce GTX 275 ou não dependerá do jogo. Dos seis jogos e simulações que rodamos, a Radeon HD 5830 venceu em três (3DMark Vantage, Crysis Warhead e Unigine Tropics), empatou...

International Review By TechSweden on 70

XFX HD 5830 kunde faktiskt vara ett väldigt bra kort, om inte HD 5850 korten redan fanns. Prestandan hos HD 5830 är självklart lägre än hos storebror HD 5850, men priset ligger alldeles för nära för att motivera...

Så er ringen sluttet. Alle versioner af ATIs seneste generation af grafikkort er nu officielt på markedet. Lige fra toppen, HD5970, til lowend, HD5450, er nu i handlen. Det sidste kort i den lange række, er HD5830 som er designet til at...

Die XFX Radeon HD 5830 zeigte sich im heutigen Test als durchaus rundes und erwachsenes Produkt. Auch XFX hat ein eigenes Boardlayout gewählt und verpflanzte darauf einen Radeon-HD-5770-Referenzkühler...
