Performance-wise this reference design HD 5770 certainly holds its own against the much beefier GeForce GTX 260-216. With the factory overclocked GTX 260 just beating the stock HD 5770 in most tests, there is no doubt the HD 5770 can likely take out a reference GTX 260-216 across the board.

View this thread in our forums! on the last page redirects to the forums instead of this thread.

On the closer look page, the GDDR5 are designed to run at 5Ghz effective since GDDR5 is quadpumped.

Overall great review! The 5770 and 5750 crossfire is pretty interesting. Never knew you could crossfire like that.

Thanks for including the lonely old GTX 260. I've wondered how these newer "mid range" cards compared to my grandpa GTX 260. Now I know that I'd be wasting money on nothing short of a HD 5850/GTX 470.
