Filling the final void in its HD 5800 series of graphics cards, AMD has today released the HD 5830 to market. This card is priced a good bit lower than the HD 5850 at under $250 but promises significantly better performance than the HD 5770, the next model beneath it. Certainly it has its place in the market providing AMD get the price vs. performance ratio right.

To help answer that, there's a horde of reviews now floating about on the web, including our own on the ATI reference model which looks at it in stock and overclocked form as well as comparing it to the two models above and beneath it in AMD's lineup, the HD 5850 and HD 5770 to see how well it nestles into this position.

I'm sure after looking over the results many of you will be keen to get your hands on one when factoring in the good drop in price vs. the 5850. The potential problem with this is stock. Word is that the supply is short and distributers just aren't getting the quantities they want. Time will tell how badly this will affect the success of the model depending on whether or not AMD can get enough cards shipped out.

Stay tuned for more articles from Shane on the model in the coming days, including one where we Crossfire two of them to see how well they play ball together.
