    I think it is urgent to wait for new drivers ! Catalyst 9.10 ? 9.11 ? or 10.0 ?! Quick !!

    ^ It looks like ATI finally fixed their idle power consumption problem: two Radeon HD 5870 cards in CrossFire use less at idle than a single Radeon HD 4870 card. That's a total of 4.30 billion transistors using less power than 956 million transistors; no small feat I'm guessing.
    Apple MacBook Pro (2009 Model)
    - 15.4" LED-Backlit Glossy LCD Display (1440x900 Resolution)
    - Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (2.53GHz, 3MB Shared L2 Cache)
    - NVIDIA GeForce 9400M GPU (256MB Shared Memory)
    - 4GB (2GB x 2) DDR3-1066 Memory
    - 250GB Hard Disk Drive (5400 RPM)
    - Mac OS X "Snow Leopard" (v10.6.7)

    Hmmm... Seems like new drivers are needed. Power consumption is indeed improved significantly, partly thanks to 40nm manufacturing.

    haha @ fanboys going wild already. it was totally predictable that the hd5870 wasnt gonna be that much faster than the previous generation. it only has a ~25% memory performance improvement, which is a seriously bottleneck for the much increased shader/pixel/texel performance. no going around the fact that memory speed is just as important as core speed

    i congratulate AMD however on a good product with amazing idle power consumption. i might consider buying one - with saphire's vapor-x cooling solution

    LOL, Are you serious thinking a chip doubling every aspect, every unit, in a extreme parallel data flow concept is not that much faster (aka, 2x?)? There is a problem with drivers, clearly.

    AMD is crazy releasing this card without polished drivers.

    well, a single GPU being able to match or surpass 4870x2 alone is a very convincing point for me to get this card. but still decided to wait until I see NV new cards, so for the moment LL sticking to my pathetic 4770.

    if HD4770 is pathetic
    then moi HD4650 can throw into rubbish bin already
    lolz
    my rig: it isn't an oil rig. how i wish it was.

    I have expected this miserably fabricated review of the 5870 from Tomshardware.Simply by copmaring these Hawx and Crysis numbers to the ones from their latest high end graphics cards roundup, you can see how their numbers change from one review to another exposing their unreliability...



    According to this chart, the 4890 @ 1920x1200 is some 6 fps slower than the gtx285.While here, the 4890 is matching the gtx285 at that resolution......




    In this chart, the 4890 is slower than the gtx260, and on par with the 9800gtx.Comparing that to the Hawx chart here, the 4890 beats the gtx285 with a significant lead...


    Anyways, I expect the 5870 to be shown even worse than that by the Nvidia_sponsored sites.
    PCGH has already posted a demo of Nvidia's DX11 "Compute-Shader" , so expect the unexpected from those cheap sites.

    Test: ATi Radeon HD 5870 (Seite 23) - 23.09.2009 - ComputerBase

    i like this site, it's pretty practical since they accumulate all games into 1 graph and you can move the cursor over the individual cards and it will compare them percentage-wise

    I don't think the memory bandwidth of the card will cause any bottlenecking issues even at 2560x1600 resolution.The 4850 clocked at 750MHz almost matches the 4870 at the same clock speed with less than half the memory bandwidth, even at high resolutions...

    You simply keep hitting the wrong spot without looking around.
    the 5870 does have double the maximum processing power of the 4890,
    as it has double the number of shader, vertex, and geometry pipelines, along with double the number of Texture addressing units.
    But...to make use of all these available executing units simultaneously
    "parallelism", is not only affected by the internal GPU architecture, but also by the applications, and how well they are optimized for such a huge parallel processor.
