    Most sites have published their full reviews of the ATI Radeon HD 5750 and 5770 graphics cards this morning.

    Looks like there's a nice sweetspot for these cards, CF performance looks especially appealing. See the list below.

    seriously wtf. 5770 msrp is 159 usd yet I have seen it here in the UK for 145 quid!

    When these are 90-100 quid they will be an awesome CF buy, otherwise I will just get a 5850.

    They need to be around £110 tops, once they hit that they will be awesome CF buys.

    Taking they are around the same speed as the 4870 1GB which you can pick up for £100 now.

    At 110 a pair costs more than a 5850.

    Problem is that it's not faster in all cases. IMO buying 2 gpus that barely outperform a single one when costing the same if not a bit more is a bad idea.

    *edit* actually looking at all the benchmarks it's a good bit faster than the 5850 overall so the extra 20 quid would be worth it. Certainly not at current prices though :(

    Just looking at the Anand review 2 x 5770's @ 1920x out perform (by a large margin) or match a single 5850 in every single game.

    They are effectively a DX11 4870X2, and we have seen that the X2 still matches/beats the 5870 in the majority of stuff.

    At £110 a pop i'd snap up a couple personally.


    Agree. At almost £130 they are too expensive, that'd be £260 for a pair and at that price you might as well just punt the extra for a 5870 and have a single card solution.

    I'm going to be getting a 5770 for my HTPC.

    With just 18watts Idle, and capable of gaming almost as well as my 4870 it's a surefire winner. Add to this the inclusion of a protected audio pathway and my HTPC will be given the upgrade it's been screaming for.

    :-D

    The 5770s scale really nice in crossfire, for under £300 they're beating the 5870 in a few cases (and the GTX 295!)

    They are good cards that are being made less ipressive due to the very low prices existing for current gen cards (4870 and GTX 260).

    Good thing is that 48xx is going away now and ATi can, if they need, cut the prices as the 67xx GPU is a lot smaller.

    Basically, deatures is what is supposed to drive sales of these along with low power and noise. There are rumours of a passive 57xx series as well.

    That's exacly what I have one of these lined up for. Currently running a 4770 but the audio bitstreaming will be a welcome upgrade when the apps are available to support it. Might wait to see if the price drops a little bit first though.

    For this price there is no point in buying this card the 260 is better and cheaper.

    Likewise gvers, at the moment the prices are a bit steep. I don't think this will take long to drop however.

    I hope a passive card is released, that would be the icing on the cake!

    Depends on your point of view, I guess. The 57xx supports DirectX 11 and has (I believe) lower power consumption. Sounds good to me!

    I reckon the proces will drop by a good margin as soon as the manufacturers have the chance to produce non-reference versions with less expensive coolers and fewer video out connections. Right now these things are way over-engineered for a mid-range product.
