Sapphire Radeon HD 5570 1GB CrossFire Video Card Review

It has only been five days since ATI released the ATI Radeon HD 5450 video card, but they are back at it today with the announcement of the Radeon HD 5570 video card. This card was designed to be an energy efficient, low-profile DirectX 11 card for small form factor PCs. It also happens to pack a pretty mean punch as it has a Compute Performance rating of 520 GFlops for a price tag of just $79.

The ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card that was launched last week brought full DirectX 11 support, ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and ATI Stream technology support for ~$49. That is a hard combination to beat for the price, but the Radeon HD 5450 graphics card wasn’t that great in gaming and some have said that it is too weak in compute performance. The ATI Radeon HD 5570 that was introduced today has four times the compute performance on paper and we were able to see nearly a two times difference in actual games. Not a bad increase for just an extra $30, but gamers will be hard pressed to go with anything less than a Radeon HD 5670 as it does much better across the board when it comes to gaming…
