ATI Radeon HD 5830 Video Card Review

Ever since the introduction of the ATI Radeon HD5770, PC gamers and enthusiasts have been looking at the wide gap between the HD5770 and the HD5850 and knew that it would only be a matter of time before ATI plugged the hole in their product line. ATI is taking a slightly different approach with the Radeon HD5830 video card; selling only the ASIC chips to their Add-In-Board (AIB) partners. In this article Benchmark Reviews is going to demonstrate a prototype ATI Radeon HD 5830 video card, and our benchmark tests are going to put an end to the rumors about the specifications and graphical performance of this highly anticipated GPU.


The Radeon HD 5830 is not a 'reference card' as we know it, because that concept is not being used this time around. We have to wait for the AIB partners to start shipping their own board designs to see what will actually be available in the marketplace. No more slapping a label on a complete card that you buy from ATI's captive supplier... For now though, we have a quick and easy way to assess the performance of the ATI Radeon HD5830 chip, lovingly wrapped in an HD5870 package. Yes, a 5870 package; I'll explain later why this is necessary.

Please follow along as we give you a sneak preview of things to come from some of ATI's AIB Partners.

About the company: ATIati_premium_graphics_logo_200.png

Over the course of AMD's four decades in business, silicon and software have become the steel and plastic of the worldwide digital economy. Technology companies have become global pacesetters, making technical advances at a prodigious rate - always driving the industry to deliver more and more, faster and faster.

However, "technology for technology's sake" is not the way we do business at AMD. Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation that's truly useful for customers - putting the real needs of people ahead of technical one-upmanship. AMD founder Jerry Sanders has always maintained that "customers should come first, at every stage of a company's activities." We believe our company history bears that out.

Ok, enough of the smoothing over and red rooster fantasizing. After carefully reviewing the review, the overpriced and unavailable 5830 "keeps with" the GTX260, NOT THE GTX285.
Oh gawd, the fanboyism from reviewers (excusable to a degree because of card tester givie me one for free review reverso rate pressure) let alone the pock marked apocalypse of the raging reds is almost unbearable.
Ok, now back to the red ragers fanboy fantasies that crank the red rooster cards a full card tier or two above where they actually are when comparing them to Nvidia. Carry on red raging ravers.

Not sure which review you 'carefully read', but it wasn't this one. The GTX260 performs WAY below the 5830... and doesn't even compare in DX11 games. All you had to do is look at the results. Not sure who at NVIDIA signs your paycheck, but you're the one that's clearly biased.

Actually, the 5830 beats the GTX260 by a fair margin in the Devil May Cry 4 test, I think you might have been looking at the wrong colors. You are correct though regarding the Far Cry 2 test.

Despite reports to the contrary, from people you think would know better, the HD5830 was available from Newegg in two flavors on Launch Day. I don't know why you would use the term "unavailable" to describe this product.

# @ Silicondoc , sorry sir but YOU ARE A TOTAL FAIL OF EPIC PROPORTIONRudi 2010-06-03 04:20
Im pretty sure you the epic fail cause in crysis this card beat the GTX 260 by about 6-8 fps and compared to the GTX 260 the ATI 5830 is real bang for your buck , $300 AUD with DX11 and Eyefinty unlike the GTX 260 ,$ AUD , DX10... cant even play crysis at a decent FPS , my 9500gt plays it at 15+ FPS..4 less than the GTX 260

So tell me , whos being a fan boy? , you or the truthfull reviewer

Fan boy, you mention crysis, 4 games reviewed for both cards, and the two cards traded those 4.
YOU are the insane fanboy fool, not I.
The card competes with the 260 as I said, P E R I O D.
It doesn't compete with the 285, P E R I O D.
Six fps, or six percent, at 60-70 frames per sec, means very little without minimum numbers, and the GTX260 wins in that, especially with the 8x and 16x the reviewer kindly included.
( almost every other review site will only include 0xAA and 4xAA since the ati cards take a HUGE hit compared to the nvidia cards when AA is cranked up - same with Tesselation now).
So, I am still absolutely correct, PERIOD.
I'm sure the blathering, raging red rooster fanboy in you allowed you to only look at one game review, drool into your tinfoil hat cup (after it fell off your gyrating epileptic gourd), and screech "my 9500gt!" - oh man - WHAT A FREAKIN FAN BOY! HAHAHAHAH YER 9500GT ! HAHAHAHAHA
