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.

4800x900? Are you serious?Reply
Otherwise, great review. Just curious, are you going to make Flash 10.1 playback a benchmark? I'm just interested.
Oh yes, could you add the hierarchy chart and show where the HD 5670 fits in?Reply
I wish there was a Radeon 4850 in the comparison chart for.... Comparison....Reply
If it weren't for the 4770, this would be priced decently, at the same price it kills the 240. If they were to lower the price to $80 for the 5670, the 240 would get the dumb buy of the year award. IMO $90 would be about right, $80 is definatly too cheap.Reply
Here it will have to compete against the similarly-performing $80 GeForce 9600 GT
... wrong. it won crysis, was close in far cry2 and Hawx. It was slaughtered in the rest of the games by the 5670.

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.
I think the points made here about the pricing could be made about the entire 5xxx series. At no point in the entire line is there a GOOD value. Everything can be beaten in price/ performance by previous generation cards or combination of cards...even the 5870 loses badly to two 4890s for less money. The only thing they have going for them is DX11 and eyefinity, which for most gamers are rather questionable "value" adds because of the huge hit DX11 gives framerates and the 3 monitors needed for eyefinity. All these cards need to come down in price before they become smart price/performance buys.Reply

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!
Cleeve"Slaughtered". +1 for hyperbole!What would you call 12-20% faster across the board?Reply
oh, right, "similar" noting like the pot calling the kettle black huh.
4850 and 4770 will be out soon and prices for what units are left will probably rise in price. There's probably room for price cuts for 5670 at aReply
