Benchmark Results: H.A.W.X.
The Radeon HD 5970 underperforms two Radeon HD 5850s in CrossFire by an imperceptible, yet measurable margin in all three tested resolutions. Fortunately, H.A.W.X. remains playable all the way through 2560x1600. Let’s see what happens when you crank up anti-aliasing, though.
The same thing happens, it seems. The 5970 is a bit slower, but even with 8x MSAA turned on, the card is still fast enough for fluid frame rates at 2560x1600. Meanwhile, the GeForce GTX 295’s 1.8GB frame buffer isn’t large enough to support such a high resolution with AA enabled, and the SLI’d GeForce GTX 285s only hit 36 frames per second.

today's a great day for graphics , as the bar's been raised again !Reply
bawhaha i was waiting for thisReply
5970 picture of it in size comparison is priceless to me it's freaking huge card.
But really how are they going to get 2 chips for 5970 when they can't even get 1 for 5870 :)
Wonder if this would get the same framerates as a 5870 in a AMD 965 system ?Reply
In your face Gt240 =PReply
I'm getting more concerned with Nvidia these days. They keep playing with these low-end cards and haven't made anything all that great in almost a year. Hopefully Fermi doesn't turn into Itanic II.Reply
Sweet, another amazing card to drool at, too bad I can't afford it. Thanks for including CF'ed 5870's, that's what I wanted to compare it to the most. The release seems to coincide with the driver update. Everybody make sure to update your drivers to 9.11 :)Reply
Also, because 9.11 is out, you can also try out Adobe's Flash 10.1 prelease to try out GPU-accelerated flash
Wooww...4.3 billion transistors, low idle power, it's pricey but this baby has lots of potential :)Reply
I think ATI driven NVIDIA into a corner this time, i love the competition :)
Sweet but can't see spending 600 on a card...Reply
commodore64i love the competitionThere is no competition yet >_< prices are way up there!!!Reply
I'll wait for a price drop since there are 0 DX 11 games out currently. Hope this forces further drops in the 4870s.
