Benchmark Results: 3DMark Vantage
3DMark suggests the Radeon HD 5670 will be in the same league as the GeForce 9800 GT, GeForce GT 240, and GeForce 9600 GT. But here's where our hopes for equality with ATI's Radeon HD 4770 performance come to an end.
We run 3DMark without PhysX optimizations to keep things on a level playing field, but in our experience, it favors Radeon cards a bit when this is the case. So, we suspect the new Radeon HD 5670 will have a fight on its hands when facing Nvidia's aging (but still surprisingly potent) GeForce 9800 GT.
Otherwise, great review. Just curious, are you going to make Flash 10.1 playback a benchmark? I'm just interested.
... wrong. it won crysis, was close in far cry2 and Hawx. It was slaughtered in the rest of the games by the 5670.
Shader Processors 400 640
Texture Units: 20 32
Color ROPs: 8 16
Those numbers against the 4770 show, a crippled card. Is this to leave something in the cupboard for the next generation ?
Just meh, no reason for this card to exist at all.
low price point, low power consumption, and extremely close to the 9800GT in performance. Plenty of reasons to like this card. especially for a casual Sims or Torchlight gamer.
"Slaughtered". +1 for hyperbole!
oh, right, "similar" noting like the pot calling the kettle black huh.
