ATi Radeon HD 5750 5770 brings Gaming on Budget

ATI/AMD had recently produced some High-end Radeon HD 4890 1Ghz Radeon GPUs that knock Nvidia out of the top line. But no one really cared about users with limited budget.

Thanks to ATi, they have this new lineup coming for budget gaming enthusiasts. The latest HD 5750 and HD 5770 offer Direct X 11 graphics under $150.

Launched on October 13th, these graphics cards really mean business, ladies and gentlemen. I’ve rarely seen so many connectivity options (DVI, HDMI, Display Port are, of course, present) in one card and I have to admit that for the first time in some years, NVIDIA seems to really have some competition. The card features 720 stream processors, as well as a core that’s clocked at 700 MHz.

The HD 5770 is powered by the compact 180 mm Juniper die, which means reasonable power consumption as well as an efficient, cool and inexpensive product. The exact specifications are still up in the air. Perhaps today’s benchmarks will give us an idea. According to GPU-Z, the HD 5770 sample tested is running at 850 MHz core, and 1200 MHz fast GDDR5 memory to a 128-bit interface for a memory bandwidth of 77 GB/s.

Overall, looks like the 5770 GPU is on par with the 4870 and the 5750 is just above the Radeon 4850. Very impressive for mid-range cards that also supports Dx11 out of the box.

Tech Specs

  • Engine clock speed: 850 MHz (5750), 1200Mhz (5770)
  • RAM: 1 GB, GDDR5
  • Processing power (single precision): 1.36 TeraFLOPS
  • Memory clock speed: 1.2 GHz
  • Memory data rate: 4.8 Gbps
  • Memory bandwidth: 76.8 GB/sec
  • Maximum board power: 108 Watts
  • Idle board power: 18 Watts

Only doubt that I have is DX11 really necessary?

Here is a benchmark from GPUCafe showing FPS for various games 1920×1080. The Result: 5770 is on average 17% faster than the 5750.
