Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 Video Card in CrossFire

Our first retail HD 5830 arrives and we take the time to Crossfire the model with our reference one. Not all is rosy, though!

Introduction

Having already looked at the HD 5830 in reference form, it was time to see what our retail card could do when combined with the reference model we've already looked at. Over the past few months and clearly the past few releases, we've had a look at all the models in Crossfire and have been extremely happy with the performance boost that the setups gave us.

 

The HD 5830 clearly covers a price range that wasn't present and if you agree or disagree with how the model performs to the price, hopefully today when we add two of the bad boys together everything will change.

 

Out of the box the Sapphire doesn't look like our reference card. How it really changes, however, is something we'll get into more detail on later. For now let's check out the package and see if Sapphire can wow us with the latest model from ATI.
