The Radeon HD 5670 scored 3303pts at 1920x1200, making it just 5% faster than the GeForce 9800 GT and 18% slower than the Radeon HD 4770. Already we find these results a little troubling, as the Radeon HD 5670 really needs to beat the GeForce 9800 GT quite convincingly to be a valid contender. It was also slower than the older Radeon HD 4770, which certainly are not the kind of results we were hoping for.
