Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.8GHz (190MHz x 20)
Cooling: Noctua NH-U12P (Supplied by Noctua)
Motherboard(s): GIGABYTE EX58-UD5 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)
Memory: 3 X 2GB Kingston Hyper X PC3-16000 2000MHz DDR CL9 (Supplied by Kingston)
Hard Disk(s): Western Digital 640GB SATA 2.0 HDD (Supplied by Western Digital)
Operating System: Windows 7
Drivers: ATI Catalyst Redwood Beta, Catalyst 9.12

 


We'll be checking out the HD 5670 against the two models above it, the HD 5750 and HD 5770 to see just how far this model sits behind. As for the resolutions we'll be using, since the card is a mid range model we've dropped 2560 x 1600 and will only use 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. For the same reason, we'll also not be testing the card with AA and AF on.

 

Let's get started!

3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.

 

3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.

This picture gives us a good idea of how the model sits when compared to the two HD 5700 series cards. We'll have to see what this means in real world games soon, however.
