With word really beginning to get around that the new GT 300 based NVIDIA cards aren't going to be seen this year, it really gives AMD a chance to cement its HD 5000 series cards into the market. The latest HD 5000 series card to make its way into our labs is the HD 5850 and comes from HIS.
We've already had a look at the model before and we've been pretty happy with what ATI has done with the card. Today we'll be seeing what HIS have done to the bundle and card to see if there's anything that stands out from other models.
While we're looking at moving our video card reviews over to Windows 7, the HIS HD 5850 is still part of our older line up which revolves around testing in Vista. Before we have a look at the benchmark results, though, we'll check out the package that HIS has put together before taking a quick look at the card itself.
