HD 5670 1GB CrossFireX pitted against GTX 460

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: GTX 460 does not always win


Today we will use two HD 5670 1GB in CrossFire to hound a single GTX 460 768MB. We found this comparison could be interesting because at the moment you can get one GTX 460 768MB for the price of two HD 5670 1GB cards. Before we go further to the results page please note that not each HD 5670 is CrossFire ready. The card you want use for doubling the performance must have a CrossFire bridge on the PCB, and most of them out there do not have it. We got lucky as the cards we got from XFX and Sapphire have the aforementioned bridge.

Using HD 5670 cards without the CrossFire bridge you will result in the following message:

5670_no_crossfire_support

If the setup is done right than you will be advised to enable CrossFire for enhanced performance.

i know the main point is to see how well 5670 in CF pit against 460 but i personally think that many 5670 users not going to CF their card either. 5670 targeted at mainstream market so most people who going to buy this card may use more mainstream mobo as well, i mean mobo with only 1 PCI- E slot. :-)

Quoting renz496:

Most modern motherboards have at least 2 suitable PCI-E slots and support CrossfireX (e.g. Intel boards), so that is probably not so much of a problem.

The real problem is that for the same price as 2x 5670 you can get a 460 or a 5830. Because the 5670 is a mainstream card it is aimed at people who don't want to spend that much, making this whole comparison somewhat incomplete and pointless.

Any chance of a HD5750 Crossfire vs. GTX 460 1GB showdown? There is probably a much greater market of HD5750 owners who bought with the intention of later adding another than the same for HD5670s.

Fudzilla is just trying to show with apples-oranges comparison how "great" a buy 460GTX is. Why not compare HD5850 to GT240 SLI? Just as pointless. That particular EVGA model might even be their superclocked model. There is no specs.

@spede
Perhaps the article has been updated since you posted but there are specs on page 2.

Although I doubt many HD5670 users have the intention of using another in Crossfire (more likely to be in HTPCs or OEM systems), price wise this is quite a fair comparison. I doubt we will see their prices drop until Nvidia releases GF106 and GF108 based cards.

Huh, all the re d roosters are whining again.
I thought the 5670 CF did pretty well for being a $100 card.
Heck, since I can't stand the crazed lying red rooster ati raging, penny pinching, crybaby whiners, I was rather miffed they put a crap $100 card against the $200 460, it's insulting.
But I'm a fair guy and tell the truth, and the truth is the $100 card did pretty well, even though it's from the crap company that loses money while their raging tardfans scream they can lower prices, and therefore destroy nvidia.

5670 is similar to the 8800GT, so it would be 8800GT SLI against 5850.

You are at -6 and counting, don´t be a fool, the only company that´s going to loose all the papers is [censored]ing nvidia, launghching tissue like vga ala 465, 470, 480,... tring to save his butt.
