HD 5870 performance comparison tips up

Written by Fudzilla staff

Some new photos as well

The Czechs did it again. Some HD 5870 performance numbers have popped up on czechgamer.com, and it seems the new Radeon is quite a performer.

In Hawks DX10.1 it outperforms the HD 4890 by around 60 percent, just like Fudo predicted a few weeks back. Things look even worse for the GTX 285 which ends up twice as slow as the HD 5870. However, bear in mind this is a DX10.1 title, so take the numbers with a grain of salt.

In 3Dmark Vantage the HD 5870 is around 40 percent faster than the GTX 285 and around 60 percent faster than an HD 4890. The HD 5870 is around 17 percent faster than the HD 4870X2 in both tests.

The HD 5870 certainly offers a major improvement over the old RV7xx generation, but we're expecting Nvidia's so-called GT300 to offer an even bigger boost over current Nvidia cards.

You can see the benchmarks here, and a few photos of what is supposedly a stripped down 5870 here.
