Up on the review block is another offering from the likes of AXLE 3D over in Hong Kong, the AXLE Radeon HD 5670 1GB which is expected to retail in the $120 market competing with GeForce GTS 250’s as well as GT 240’s from NVIDIA. Read on to see how this card compares to its competition in the latest titles and benchmarks from DirectX 9, 10 and 11 as well as OpenGL!
This will be an in-depth review comparing the midrange-budget cards from both NVIDIA and ATI on as many API’s as each game provides (OpenGL, DirectX 9.0c, DirectX 10, DirectX 11 when applicable), the ATI cards support all technologies whereas the NVIDIA cards support all but DirectX 11. The goal for testing is to give the readers a good idea of performance in the latest games in DirectX 11 as well as a broad understanding of each cards performance in DirectX 9 and 10. The games and benchmarks tested should give an accurate read on which architecture is better at each DirectX level to help make the decision of which graphics card you specifically need for the games you intend to play.
