    windows benchmarks suggest that HD5770 = HD4870 = GTX 260 (with only a few percent difference in either direction, depending on the game)

    Don't just calculate with the retail price though, power consumption is a factor as well. Here's some values:

    Scenario #1: a life-time of 3 years with an average of 2 hours of load + 5 hours idle per day. (my scenario, since I often work at home and like gaming on weekends)
    Scenario #2: a life-time of 3 years, 24/7 on, an average of 2 hours of load (for those warez kiddies )

    Calculating with a price of 0.20 for 1kW/h (I pay slightly more).

    Code:
    Costs for Power for different cards
                          Scenario #1    Scenario #2
      card   idle  load    kWh  price     kWh  price
    HD 5770  17W   108W    330    66     646   129
    HD 4870  55W   160W    652   130    1675   335
    GTX 260  38W   182W    607   121    1314   263
    So if you plan to actually use the card, the retail price is often secondary. And you'll quickly see that the 5770 will turn out to be the cheapest one - unless your power is paid by mom

      Finally. ATI is back on track with a solid card. This won't be nessecairilly be a killer in Linux, but I'm glad that ATI spends it's time making better products than that nVidia trash nowadays.

      May ATI take the lead again. I don't really care that much that my ATI card doesn't work that well on Linux, but at least they put developpers on FLOSS drivers and release spec. AMD is a good company. They try to earn money buy making a better product.

        2D XRender performance worse than HD4670

        How much better is the HD 4670's 2D performance compared with the HD 4650's? Because I've got a 4650, and its current 2D performance is bad. So if these 5750/5770 cards are even worse, then they aren't going to be much use on the desktop.

        XAA acceleration only, still?

          heh, just in time for L33F3R to buy a new card.

              Physical size.

              Now I'm sure i could take some scale measurements from the photos, that's a bit more work than I would like to go through. I'm wondering what the dimensions of these cards are? mainly distance from the PCI cover plate to the end of the card. Not all of us are using full tower cases. Also I would be interested to see how these number compare to say a GTS250 or the new 220/210 cards from Nvidia.

                The 220/210 cards aren't anything special judging from what I've read. semiaccurate.com has some notes on them, and anandtech has some benchmarks here.

                But you're right, some size measurements would be nice - I did find them somewhere, but can't remember where now (sorry).

                    ohh something else that would be nice to have measured is the amp draw of these cards under idle and at load. That would make ensuring enough power supply capacity much easier (under the assumption that you can get that info from your PSU manufacturer.)

                    i found dimensions. http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3658&p=2

                      Would be nice to loads discussed in terms of X amps on the 12V rail, and Y amps on the 5V. or watts if you prefer, but separated for each voltage.

                      The Anandtech article has dimensions. The 5770 is just shy of 9" with the shroud which is expected to be dropped by manufactures due to the low TDP of the card. The 5750 is 7.15" no shroud to extend that.

                        Isn't opengl performance good enough?

                          So now you deciding on a Radeon rather than a GeForce?

                            S3 so far actually.

                              I am not really keen on S3 cards...they are kinda low end and the Openchrome driver is rather lacking
