Test System Setup

Processor(s): Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.8GHz (190MHz x 20)
Cooling: Noctua NH-U12P (Supplied by Noctua)
Motherboard(s): GIGABYTE EX58-UD5 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)
Memory: 3 X 2GB Kingston Hyper X PC3-16000 2000MHz DDR CL9 (Supplied by Kingston)
Hard Disk(s): Western Digital 640GB SATA 2.0 HDD (Supplied by Western Digital)
Operating System: Windows 7
Drivers: ATI Catalyst Redwood Beta, Catalyst 9.12

Since the card carries with it the same clocks as the Sapphire HD 5670 we looked at along with the same amount of memory, we thought it was time to throw this card along with the new MSI one we have here together to see what kind of performance we can get out of a budget CrossFire setup.

Not only will we have a look at how much extra performance a second card adds, but we'll also see what the difference between the CrossFire setup when compared to a single HD 5750 and HD 5770.

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.


Compared to the single card solution, we can see a great performance boost straight away with the CrossFire setup sitting only behind the HD 5770 which sits two models above this one.
