Needs a better GPU Cooler.
Priced too high for the performance; needs more space than a 5850.
Performance is too low for the price, Yields to Radeon HD 4890 and GeForce GTX 275 in some cases, Extremely limited RBE subsystem, Relatively high power consumption, No PhysX acceleration support.
Only 1120 Stream Processors, Only 16 ROPs, same as HD 5770, No software voltage control, can limit OC abilities, Stock fan settings make GPU too hot, Stock GPU clock is nearly maxed out, Requires more power than stock HD 5850

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...60

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...89

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,...80

There is no denying the fact that the XFX HD 5830 is an interesting product that is marketed towards mass market acceptance. It doesnt carry the price of the higher end HD 5850 and its performance does surpass that of the HD 5770 which is exactly...-
