Club3D HD 5850 Overclocked Edition tested - 10. Conclusion

Review: Nonreference cooled, quiet and overclocked











Club3D HD 5850 Overclocked Edition is a great DirectX 11 gaming card that comes factory overclocked and strapped with very quiet cooling. Of course, we can’t forget that the card comes with a coupon for a free Dirt2 game.

The cooler uses heatpipe technology and is one of the quietest coolers we’ve heard. The core is up from reference 725MHz to 760MHz, which means better performance. This is a DirectX 11 card that comes with all the bells and whistles, including ATI Eyefinity, all popular outs and more.

Although Nvidia “launched” two Fermi-based graphics cards, the availability has been pretty lousy and thus Radeon pricing remains the same and unlikely to budge anytime soon. Club3D HD 5850 Overclocked Edition is listed at €271 but is currently available only at €290, here. You really can’t go wrong with Club3D’s HD 5850 OC Edition, although we’d advise you to wait a bit for better pricing.
