Product Description

Product Description

The XFX HD5870 offers the most advanced gaming experience todate. With the latest in GPU technology and full compatible with the upcoming DirectX 11 to ensure you are not missing out on anything.

From the Manufacturer

XFX offers you the ultimate reality check with the new XFX Radeon™ HD 5870 graphics cards. Bringing three new dimensions to gaming reality, these graphics cards challenge the limits that have restrained your gaming. Until now. First, ATI Eyefinity Technology literally broadens your horizons by enabling you to spread out across three displays at resolutions of up to 1080p. Use this “wrap-around” in-picture experience to become fully immersed in your gaming—or productively immerse in your work.1 Second, ATI Stream Technology gives your system a significant boost by offloading tasks usually sent to your CPU to your GPU. The result is a more balanced gaming platform that can handle the demands of today’s fully immersive games.2 Third, both the XFX Radeon HD 5870 offer full Microsoft® DirectX®11 support so that you can push your settings to the max and still game at the highest resolutions. And, sure-to-make-you-blink 3D effects are generated through HDR Texture Compression, DirectCompute and Tessellation.

Technology Features

Microsoft DirectX®11
DirectX® 11 is a key feature of Windows® 7 and is important for two key reasons: it helps consumers experience better performing games and faster computing.

ATI Eyefinity technology with DisplayPort connectivity, enables a single GPU to support up to six independent display outputs simultaneously. Boost everyday productivity, or intensify gaming with ultra-immersive playing environments.

ATI Stream Technology is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that enable AMD graphics processors (GPU), working in concert with the system’s central processor (CPU), to accelerate many applications beyond just graphics.

PCI Express 2.0
solutions double the bandwidth of the existing PCI Express bus delivers faster graphics and enhanced system performance. Additionally, it supports Advanced Power Management features, leading the industry to optimize overall system energy efficiency.

Bonus Game Included!
FOR A LIMITED TIME get your FREE DiRT2 download coupon included in specially marked packages (game available for download December 11, 2009).3 Take the wheel in this first DirectX 11 racing game and experience some of the most realistic graphics ever.

Tessellation is a technique used for many years in the creation of CG film and television effects to add detail to 3D images and it’s now available to PC developers for real time rendering via DirectX 11. Tessellation is truly critical for more realistic environments and characters:

  • Create dynamic water surfaces – look more realistic than ever before
  • Create dynamic clothing on characters – more accurate interaction with environments including wind and movement
  • Create more detailed crowds – high levels of detail no longer need to be limited to characters in the front rows

Multi-threading support built into DirectX 11 enables rendering tasks assigned to the CPU to be efficiently spread across AMD’s multiple cores, enabling a better balance of performance between the CPU and GPU.

  • The CPU can effectively feed the graphics processors more data reducing a performance bottleneck

Compute Shaders
Compute Shaders are programs that are executed on the graphics processor. With DirectX 11 and DirectCompute, developers are able to use the massive parallel processing power of modern GPUs to accelerate a much wider range of applications that were previously only executable on CPUs.

  • Optimized post-processing effects – apply advanced lighting techniques to enhance the mood in a scene
  • High quality shadow filtering – no more hard edges on a shadow, see shadows the way you would in real life
  • Depth of field – use the power of the GPU to have more realistic transitions of focal points - imagine looking through a gun sight or a camera lens
  • High definition ambient occlusion – incredibly realistic lighting and shadow combinations

My previous card was the XLR8 Nvidia 9800 GT 1024mb ddr3. it would play crysis on very high spec with no anti-aliasing about 15-20 fps on my 40" tv. I can now play it on very high spec with 8x anti aliasing and maintain 30-40 fps. However, if you start a game without AAx8 on then switch it on, it will drop fps to about 10-15 for about a minute while it catches up, it's best to just start with AA already on. if you have a monitor that shows resolutions up to 1600p i couldn't tell you if this card can hit those resolutions with the same performance, but 1080p works like a charm. it comes with the ati catalist program that allows you to overclock it. all this performace is without overclocking.

WARNING: it does take two slots on the back of your computer. it only takes one pci express slot, but the card is so thick that it has 2 metal brackets instead of just one, where you connect your monitors. also it is 11 inches long. make sure it will fit before buying.

Insanely fast, overclocking "out-of-the-box" is ok, goes to 900/1250.
After applying ASUS Bios and using MSI Afterburner, can get the GPU all the way to 1100-1200Mhz stable (can go to 1400 but good luck trying it), however no luck with the memory going over 1250.

- Fastest video card on the market, can run anything with full details on my 24" at 1920x1200
- Can use an MCW-60 to watercool it (uses standard Ati holes/plate) and go to even higher clocks with low noise ;)
- Looks great on the case, a big card with a nice design on it (other brands place a girl/axe/other stuff on the side of the card that IMO looks ugly)
- Ati has the only DX11 cards on the market right now
- Display Port finally!
- Eyefinity with 3 monitors

- A bit more overclockability from the memory will be nice.
- Over 1000Mhz the standard hsf can become noisy
- Eyefinity with 3 monitors (a con since it makes me think to buy 2 more monitors... lol!)

I am an avid Nvidia fan. I have been using Nvidia cards even when I did not realise it, back with the 3DFX "Voodoo cards" which was bought by Nvidia. I was wanting to turn my system into a dedicated Gaming machine for about a year now. But was waiting to see the next installment of the Intel CPU's and the new Cards from Nvidia.

Well after seeing the release of the GTX 470 and GTX 480 I was not completly impressed with the cards, as I and many thought it was going to be better. After hours and hours of thought I decided to go with the ATI HD 5870's in crossfire. This was a hard decision to make since I was an Nvidia boy.

But since I already had a high end PC which I built, plus since after reading review after review and seeing that my setup was onpare with some of the Core I7 PC's and added to that, the fact that my Gaming motherboard only supported dual ATI cards, I went with ATI and I am very happy indeed.

For someone who never used ATI cards because of the driver issues and incompatibility in games and programs. I have not experianced any glitches thats others claim after only a few weeks or days of owning their cards. So knock on wood, So far, so extreamly good !!!!

This is the best investment I've made in a while. For about 2 months I was researching in forums and looking the reviews of numerous sites and after evaluating all the information available the HD5870 was my pick (Btw I've always been a Nvidia fan)... Why?... Compared with the GTX 480 it use less power (130w difference under load is a lot) and the real improvement on FPS with the GTX 480 is about 10 to 15 and in some games is equal so in terms of money vs performance is not a great buy. At this moment Nvidia fans (like I was) reading this may say that FPS difference is higher and I say that is true but when playing with a lame AA 4x... Real gamers use AA at least at 8X and AF at 16X an that's when you see the 10 to 15 FPS difference (that includes DX9, DX10 and DX11 games)... The other issue is the heat problem... If you have to wait 2 minutes after turning the pc off to touch the GTX 480 for me that's not a good sales point... Don't get me wrong, the HD 5870 gets hot too but the temp is lower and lower temps makes me happy... That is if you are air cooling your card... I'm using a koolance waterblock to cool it and the hottest it gets is about 42C compared with my older EVGA GTX 280 with the EVGA waterblock the temp was 60C... Now comparing the HD 5870 with the HD 5970... The only issue is that a HD 5970 is very hard to find...
I have 2 HD 5870 in Xfire and all I can say is WOW!... Using the latest driver (10.4 is the current) and profiles I get smooth as silk FPS...
Some of the games used to test the HD 5870 were: Company of Heroes ToV, Wings of Prey, Crysis, Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Dirt 1 and 2, Grid, GTA IV, GTA EFLC, NFS Shift, Flight Simulator X Accel., Borderlands, Street Fighter IV, Strike Fighters 2 Israel and DCS Black Shark...
