Last week AMD established of a match of the 1st DirectX 11 graphics cards, the ATI Radeon HD 5870 and Radeon HD 5850! We spelt up a fully survey on the Radeon HD 5870 graphics card at that time, but the Radeon HD 5850 was not precisely shipping yet.
It comes along that AMD has commenced volume shipping of the Radeon HD 5870 and that the 1st shipments of the Radeon HD 5850 have eventually constructed it from the factory to retailers approximately the world. But it does cost more than what most consumers are leaving to expenditure.
The Radeon HD 5850 appears very like to the Radeon HD 5870 as both cards utilize essentially the same core logic.Not a bad cost conceiving the Radeon HD 5850 has a compute power placing of 2.09 TFLOPS, a frame buffer of one GB and defends up to 3 monitors at a resolution of 2560 x 1600!Other than that you will have a Radeon HD 5800 series graphics card that has only eighteen SIMD engines (two fewer than the Radeon HD 5870) that function at let down clock frequencies.
The 1440 stream CPU on the Radeon HD 5850 function at a core clock frequency of 725MHz. The one GB of GDDR5 storage is operating at 1000MHz rather than 1200MHz, so the storage bandwidth is let down.certainly the card is without powerful, but that means it will have let down load temperatures as well as thirty-seven Watts lower power consumption at load.
Afterwards some the Radeon HD 5850 and the Radeon HD 5870 have the same numbers of transistors and are based off the same GPU core architecture the idle board ability and temperatures should stay the same.
