Radeon HD 5870 Launched!

While catching up with news from the digital world, I found out that the Radeon HD 5870 is finally launched! Oh what joy it is to see the reviews and benchmark on this one with me being an ATi fanboy and all. 🙂

On many of the benchmarks its performance surpasses the current king of the crop, the GTX 285. The raw power comes with a low electric consumption, much lower than the HD 4890. What’s very interesting is that it can drive up to 6 monitors on some special cards, this feature is definitely handy for me at work. It is priced quite high at $399, but that is to be expected with a new king of the hill, hehe.

You can read the reviews in my favorite sites, here or here, and also here and here for the CrossFire configuration and share the joy with me.
