Ati Radeon HD 5800 Test
Continuation: Radeon HD 5870: Review of the first DirectX 11 graphics card


Radeon HD 5870: Overclocking
The comparatively low noise level and the good temperatures make the Radeon HD 5870 an interesting card for overclocking attempts. We cool the metal backplate with an additional 120 millimeter fan and increase the fan speed in the Catalyst Control Center to - deafening - 100 percent.
Catalyst Control Center: The Overdrive menu allows only 900/2.600 MHz

The Overdrive menu of the Catalyst Control Center allows 900/2,600 MHz at max (default: 850/2,400 MHz). Due to the good cooling our HD 5870 test sample is running stable with the CCC maximum. The performance in games is increased by up to five percent.

Guys I've read another review where they tested Eyefinity with a few games.

Sadly it didnt really work well... either the games did not detect the correct aspect ratio and stretched the image on the side monitors making it useless, or they would cut the top and bottom of the screen off making it impossible to see HUD menus etc...

I'm wondering how Supreme Commander would work? or any other RTS game for that matter... it would be great to see supreme commander on 3 monitors spanned across... awesome!

Yapa
