Figuring out what to add in our graphs today was easy. We've added the newly released HD 5450 which isn't really a gamers card, but more so an office one. On the other side we've got the HD 5670 which is what we consider an entry level gamers card offering playable game play at 1680 x 1050 when in game settings are low.


So the question we're asking today is, does the HD 5570 lean more towards the gaming orientated HD 5670 or more towards the office aimed HD 5450? - Our initial thoughts are the HD 5450 due to the decision to use GDDR3 and also looking at the low profile nature of the card.


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.




Straight away we can see that looks are deceiving. Even though the model is low profile and carries with it GDDR3 memory, it's clearly a lot closer to the HD 5670 than the HD 5450.
