Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 2GB Overclocked

Manufacturer: SapphireTech

High Quality AA and AF


Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now.


Resident Evil 5




Cranking up the AA and AF under RE5, we again see the HD 5970 perform very well when overclocked.


Far Cry 2






While the HD 5970 in its stock form manages to get over 30 FPS in the minimum department, it really does manage to only scrape past it. The same card overclocked gives us a lot more breathing room with the minimum moving over 40 FPS.


World In Conflict






While our non AA WIC tests didn't show anything too exciting, you can see when the card is placed under a lot of pressure we begin to see the overclock work here. More importantly, the card manages to break the 30 FPS minimum which is something the HD 5870 CF setup wasn't able to achieve.
