XFX Radeon HD 5830 Video Card Review

The XFX Radeon HD 5830 video card features 1120 stream processors, 1GB of GDDR5 memory, a custom GPU cooler and a price tag of under $240. If you are looking to spend under $250 on a DirectX 11 graphics card that fully supports ATI Eyefinity then you'll need to take a look at this one and see how it performs to other video cards like a couple different NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465's for starters.

The XFX Radeon HD 5830 has an overall length of 10.25 inches, so this isn't a little card by any means. In order to keep the XFX Radeon HD 5830's temperatures in check, XFX uses a custom cooling solution that features a 70mm fan. The heat sink assembly has a pair of heat pipes with ~120 fins soldered in place. The fan is a 70x70x15mm fan that is rated for .43 Amps and a maximum speed of 4000RPM. For a small fan it move a decent amount of air, at maximum speed it will push 35.5CFM through the fins of the heatsink. The heat sink itself has a copper base and the pair of copper heatpipes that run through the base have been soldered into place...

wow surprised how small the difference is between it and the 5750, doesn't look to be a whole lot better than the 5770 and nowhere near 57xx crossfire

You mean the 5770. Yea the 5770 is a better buy imo. Much cheaper while taking a not-so-big performance hit. This week, there was two seperate deals where the 5830 could be bought for $190 and $180 after rebate.

Great view Dan.

The whole time I thought it was a 5770... ](*,)

You don't read reviews from other sites? The 5770 is pretty much 10% to 20% slower than the 5830. That's why the 5830 can be had for so cheap occasionally. No one sane would buy a 5830.

nope. not unless im buying something specific, but i usually google "(part) legitreviews" anyway. mostly i just dont trust most other sites..at all, and don't get me started on magazines
(that and a lot of sites have terrible layouts/colors so i cant even stand reading them)

just noticed, the 5830 only has 16 ROP engines which is the same as the 5670, 5750 & 5770 lol wonder why they have to be 4/8/16/32
