Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1GB and Radeon HD 5750 1GB video card reviewThe dust may only just have settled on the launch of AMD's Cypress architecture, bringing with it full DirectX 11 support, lots of plaudits from all quarters and the disappointment of decidedly limited stock numbers - Regardless, the release of the Radeon HD 5800 series represented a fantastic opportunity for AMD's ATI graphics division to take the lead from NVIDIA in the most marked way imaginable at an important time for the industry, and this clearly isn't an opportunity that AMD are going to risk squandering.
Thus, rather than resting on their laurels, AMD have followed up the release of these high-end graphics board almost immediately, which brings us to today and the launch of the Radeon HD 5700, which aims to bring the advantages of DirectX 11 amongst other things to some lower price points, more specifically those of the likes of the Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4770. Sounds exciting, doesn't it?
Thankfully, Sapphire have shipped us samples of both boards being launched today to put through their paces, both sporting reference clock speeds, so without further ado let's see if the Radeon HD 5770 and Radeon HD 5750 can bring the same kind of impressive performance and features to the table as their big brothers.
