So here is the rub, the new ATI Radeon HD 5970 is fast, the fastest single PCB video card for gaming, no question about that. The problem currently is it is being held back by drivers, software, and the applications themselves. Current drivers are not without problems on the new Radeon HD 5000 series. There are a slew of games that have some kind of issue with this new graphics series from AMD. If it isn’t lack of AA support or poor AA performance then it is just overall slower performance than it should be in games. There are a handful of games now that we have played where we feel performance is not where it should be for this new series, including but not limited to Batman, Resident Evil 5, and Borderlands. Not to be overlooked but all the titles with issues on AMD GPUs are NVIDIA TWIMTBP games. Coincidence?
