Depends on the price of the 4890. If the 4890 is $200+ a 5770 would be your best bet because they have dropped in price and has good performance. 5770 is a tad weaker than the 4870 but has DX11.

What is your PSU?

See if you can stretch up to an HD5830 for $240, or an HD5850 for $300.
March 11, 2010 10:41:39 PM

the 5830 is as strong as a 4890 I do believe.

Best to worse
5830 = 4890
4870= 5770 close enough


Again comes down to the price of the 4890. How much does it cost?

HD5830 using the cypress core overclocks much better though.
March 11, 2010 11:01:34 PM

4890 (200$)> 5830 (260$)> 4870 (160$) > 5770 (150$)

The only thing is, both the 5830 and the 4890 can OC like champs. But the 4890 is faster,and 60$ cheaper.

HD5830. It uses newer technology. It's only faster if you overclock, however.

You can OC the HD5830 to better results though.

Better than an OC'd HD4890...
March 12, 2010 10:15:44 PM

Realy? Prove it. Also, the 4890 is 50$ cheaper, so if you want ot comapre the 5830 to the 4890, I want to compare it to a 5850.

Reviews for HD5830 OC aren't many in number.

This article was able to get #'s at least as good as the 4890. http://www.techspot.com/article/255-battlefield-bad-com... The launch articles about the 5830 here and at Anands did not show it as well. I believe Hocp got some good #'s out of it as well. IMO, I've been watching prices, the 5830 is not a bad deal for 240.00. VS 210.00 for the ony 4890 available at newegg today. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Bottom line is (money). If you don't have the 30 or 40 extra. You get the 4890, and know you got the fastest gpu from last generation (ATI) !





These two new reviews of the 5830 compare it well to the other 5 series cards in the lineup.
Right in the middle of 5850/5770. IMO , for every reason, everyone and their mother recommends the 5770 over
the 4870, the same applies to the 5830. Which is 60 bucks cheaper than the 5850. ATI needed something in between the
5770~5850, it works for me.
March 12, 2010 10:44:00 PM

Bottom line: The 4890 is much faster at stock, and at OC they are about the same do to RV790s huge OC headroom, and those 3Million extra transistors :) . Simmilar Power,Speed, heat, 50$ price diffrence. It's youre choice....

HD4890 is EQUAL to HD5830 at stock. Neither is faster than the other, as they equal out in game variety.

Similar power? You high?
Heat? You high?
March 12, 2010 10:56:43 PM

1. The 4890 is much faster in 90% od benches at stock. I can find many more that flatter the 4890 than you cab that flatter the 5830.

2. There still is a 50$ price diffence.

3. Final question.

The price diffence bewteen the 5850 and the 5830, and the 4890 and the 5830 are both 50$. Does the 5830 offer as much of an incrase over the 4890 as the the 5850 does over the 5830?

I firmly think the awnser is a undisputable NO, In opposing to the thery of "Diminshing Retuns".

Is faster in 90% of the benches? Maybe if you care about a 1-2FPS difference; other than that, the HD5830 usually has better minimum FPS's, and tends to shien when AA/High res is applied.

Also, it's currently a new card vs an old card. When the HD5830 ages some, it'll drop down to the ~$200 regions where it's supposed to be.
March 12, 2010 11:19:43 PM

Agreed Shadow. At sub 200$, It would displace the 4850 1gb xfire (about <200$) on Bob's list of recomeneded cards. But untill that date, It will NOT have the honor of being placed on Bob's list of recomeded cards.
