More about 5770 cheap gtx275 4890
  1. The HD 5770 is about the same as the 4870 and GTX 260 when it comes to raw processing power. But compared to them it offers DirectX 11 support, low power consumption, low operating temperatures, & quiet operation.
  2. The reason of it being cheaper than HD 4890 is that AMD wants to sell HD 5xxx series more so its a marketing reason.
    In terms of performance GTX 275 > HD 4890 > HD 5770 but HD 5770 has newer techs like DX11,eyefinity etc.
  3. yeah, but why so cheap?? this thing bring me some worries... it about 100$ of difference

    so hd 4890 have more performance? and dx11 really so important??
  5. Because it is less than 1/2 the cost of the 4890 to make and probably closer to 1/3rd the cost of the 275 to make (per chip).
  6. So what do you recommend to take, 5770 or 4890??
  7. If the HD5770 is cheaper get that. If the same price get the HD4890 it is close to 20% more powerful but does not have DX11 support like the HD5770 which matters for Win Vista and 7
  8. Yes what are the prices ?
    Also Rolli59,isn't DX11 just important for 7 ?

    Windows Vista SP2 with the Platform Update has DirectX 11. So it's important for both Vista and 7.
