Are ATI's 5700 and 5800 series compatible with P35 chipset?

Are ATI's new 5700 and 5800 series compatible with P35 chipset? e.g. Abit IP35 Pro with BIOS nr 18?

budget is really low, so I hope don't have to change mobo.

Any thoughts appreciated a lot, cheers

  1. As far as I know, if that's PCI-E, then it's ok.
  2. Yes it is
  3. Here is the board:
    http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=IP35+Pro&fMTYPE=LGA775
    It has a PCI-E 16x slot(Actually 2 PCI-E 16x slots which will perform in 16x4x speed in CrossFire mode)and since PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible then you can use either 5700 or 5800 series on it
  4. cheers.. exactly what I thought^^, its just that right know I m having so much crashing issues with present 8800GT and HD4850 so got to get confirm on this.

    OR does it make sense anyway if p35 doesn't support DirectX 11 ?

    If that was the case, then we would need to buy a new motherboard every time a new DX version comes out. :pt1cable: The P35 is still good enough.

    Well If the Graphic card supports DX 11(Such as HD 57xx/58xx series)i don't think the chipset will have any problems with it :)
  7. PCI-E version is confusing also - HD 57xx/58xx series are PCI-E 2.1
    I couldn't find direct statement says 2.1 being compatible with 1.0 but 2.1 has actually the same link as 2.0 hence should be backward compatible with this mobo's PCI-E 1.0a.
    from Wikipedia: "Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v 2.0 will be able to work with the other being v 1.1 or v 1.0."
  8. Yes its compatible,and here is a guy using a 5870 with a P35 board as-well :
    http://www.tech-pc.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&p=777952
    "The 5870 works fine on a P35 as that's what I'm running."
  9. nice thanks!

    and got to follow HeX's advice "just knock your FSB up to 400MHz, keep your ram in sync at 1:1 (for 800MHz PC6400), then crank up the vcore until its stable." I hope it works on my E8400 so no bottleneck here
  10. Knock your FPS to 400 and keeping ram sync @ 1:1 is when you want to OC your CPU,its not related for the compatibility :) and your E8400 would be fine,you can OC it though because its a solid overclocker :)
  11. njaaahh , sry people but it's probably not me who is running P35 with HD5800. I bought HD4770 at the end of the day.
    After many days and nights of testing, I m pretty sure something is wrong with my Zalman PSU at very peak power. HD4770 requires only a half of power than my present card (8800GT) so I ll give it a chance, cost only 80eur I think should be fine with all present games @ 1440x900.
    Will build new system next christmas when there will be a lot of DX11 games and so more choice of DX11 cards.

    solved, thanks.
