    HD 5830 spotted

    Radeon HD 5830 with HD 4890 performance, but cheaper
    Written by Andreas G 12 January 2010 19:55

    While NVIDIA is waiting to the Fermi architecture to go into mass production AMD is already up to a high tempo on the same market. Days from now it launch the first budget cards of the Radeon HD 5600 series, but by the end of the month, on January 25th, it will unveil a new addition to the Radeon HD 5800 series. AMD follows the scheme from the Radeon HD 4000 family and the card will be called Radeon HD 5830.

    Exact specifications, as in the number of shader processors or clock frequencies, are still unclear. Our sources suggests that Radeon HD 5830 will use GDDR5 memory and offer performance on the line of AMD's Radeon HD 4890 card, but at a lower price.

    We're guessing the design will be the same as the more powerful siblings, but even if the price hasn't been set it would be nice with a card from the Radeon HD 5800 series that costs less that $200. In a few weeks we will know more.

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    I'd guess 1280 shaders. In fact, when the 5870 / 5850 came out I predicted a 5830 with 1280 shaders...

    If I'm right, it should have better than 4890 performance, frankly. Could be very interesting...

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    TBH,if it is a RV870 with 800 stream processors and the same clocks as an HD4890 it would offer similar performance to an HD4890. OTH,it could be and HD5770 with A higher clocked core. In both cases it would be very underwhelming TBH unless it was around £100 to £125 as HD4890 cards can be had for under £130 ATM.

    Hopefully the card would have performance closer to that of the overclocked HD4890 cards or the GTX275.

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    I'd guess that it'll be a binned chip, just like the 4830 was.
    Although that sounds very nice in it's self esp if the a lower clocked chip means they can get the power demands down.

    I'll wait for it to hit the UK market so we actually know a price and performance before I get excited though.

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    Yup, if power and heat outputs are down it could be nice step up from a 5770. Really going to depends on the price

    I can't see them chopping the RV870 that hard, tbh - that's a massive reduction from the 1440 shaders sported by the 5850, and would hardly be worth the 58x0 nomenclature, since it would effectively be a 5770 with a wider memory bus. Given the reduction from 5870 to 5850 (1600 -> 1440), 1280 shaders would make sense - although that might be a good reason for assuming it won't happen

    Can't wait to see this perform and the priceof it, guess i'll wait till it's all revealed instead of jumping on board the 5770 wagon!

    Looks promising . Could be my perfect upgrade if the price is right....

    If the new card has similar performance to an HD4890 then it will be either a DX11 HD4890 essentially or a souped up HD5770!!

    I am hoping it is much powerful than an HD5770 though and closer to a GTX285 in performance as the HD5850 exceeds the performance of a GTX285 in most games.

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    Will it not just be a Radeon 4770 Crossfire on a stick - performance wise ?

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    That'd be nice, wouldn't it

    I wish ATI had authorised more X2 cards with the 4 series: a 4670 X2 would've been interesting, as would a 4770 X2.

    A single 1280 shader GPU *should* be faster than Xfire 4770s, because of the overheads involved with Xfire, and the fact that it could utilise the full memory allocation and bandwidth. But it'd certainly be in that ballpark...

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    If it is like a 4770 X2 should be quite good price wise and i may be interested - £150ish like the 4950's used to be ? Maybe less seen as theyre smaller (?) and the fab's are picking up the pace now.

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    Wonder how pricing will be, especially with the HD5770 around £115 and HD4890 around £130.

    Re: HD 5830 spotted

    Given that the 5850 is ~ £220 minimum and the 5770 is about £130 maximum I'd guess they'll target £170ish (~ $200 before tax, I guess) - they don't have anything new at that price point.

    This sounds like just what I need, hope it is around the 150 mark.
