ATI Radeon HD 5570: Reasonable Gaming Performance For $80?

Benchmark Results: 3DMark Vantage And Far Cry 2

We begin with 3DMark, the only synthetic gaming benchmark we employ. According to this application, the new Radeon HD 5570 will perform somewhere between the GeForce 9600 GT and its predecessor, the Radeon HD 4670.

Far Cry 2 is the first game in our suite, and it seems to correspond with 3DMark Vantage fairly well. The new Radeon HD 5570 performs a little better than the 4670, but below the GeForce 9600 GT. In any case, performance is acceptable all the way up to 1920x1200.
