    Phoronix: AMD Radeon HD 5750/5770

    In late September AMD had introduced the Radeon HD 5850 and Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards as the successors to the Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4870, respectively. These graphics cards, which are part of the Evergreen GPU family, have been performing quite nicely according to reports, but we have yet to test either of these Cypress graphics cards under Linux. Today though AMD is introducing the first midrange graphics cards in the Evergreen family. Under the Juniper codename, the Radeon HD 5750 and HD 5770 are being launched with both graphics cards being quite similar except for the ATI Radeon HD 5770 shipping with slightly higher core and memory clocks along with a different heatsink. In this review we have the first Linux-based benchmarks of these two new graphics cards, which are also the first publicized Linux benchmarks from any AMD Evergreen graphics processor.

    The fan on this heatsink is moderately sized, but during our testing we found it to operate quietly.
    The fan on the 5750 looks really nice. Remember, bigger fans can spin at a lower RPM, but move still move more air than smaller fans (as those of us who owned nFurnace4 boards before the advent of heatpipes can attest to).

      Rapid-Fire Launching!

      Wow. The 5800 series was released, what -- three weeks ago? And now the 5700 series is being launched? Impressive. Does this mean we'll have 5600 series cards launching by early November?

      Of course, I'm still waiting for RadeonHD 2000/3000/4000 series GPUs to have proper OpenGL support via Mesa. Arch Linux should have the 2.6.32 kernel -- and OpenGL -- by late December. We hope.

        The claimed idle power consumption looks really good, I wonder if this also holds true in Linux... Also it would be nice if you benchmark some games running under wine (e.g. Half-Life 2) in a normal resolution, I don't think many people have a 2560x1600 display...

          Will these guys be able to use the r600/r700 mesa drivers, or will drivers need to be written from scratch to support them?

            We'll be adding support to the r600 mesa driver.

                opengl 3 version string ?

                hmm ... can you include opengl 3 version string also ? I always miss that from any ATI/Nvidia driver or card review and have to go hunting for it.

                anyway these look nice ... maybe as prices go down a 5770 will fit into my build instead of the current GTS 250.

                  Too bad I bought a Radeon HD 4890 card a bit longer than a month ago

                    Does anybody have any idea whether or not the FOSS radeon drivers support the 3-head display feature? I am aware that dualscreen is working nicely nowadays, but I don't want to extrapolate from that. And if the drivers don't support that feature, in what timeframe might it be able to do so?

                      UVD2 / X-Video Bitstream Acceleration (XvBA) coming to FGLRX?

                      Hi Yall & Michael,

                      um, like dude, di you just say ....

                      "The Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD2) support with ATI Avivo HD may also be ignored by Linux users at this time, as we have been talking about the X-Video Bitstream Acceleration (XvBA) for a year now and it still has yet to be usable by ATI Radeon customers, but it finally will be in the very near future. UVD2 in ATI Radeon hardware will finally mean something on Linux, but we will have to wait to share more until permitted."

                      Holly Smokes, that should so have been the title of this article!

                      That is FANTASTIC NEWS!!!!

                      We can organize, UVD2 / X-Video Bitstream Acceleration (XvBA) Parties, accross the www, to celebrate! :-)

                      Just as well I went for a 5850! :-)

                      *GeekNirvana*

                      *OMG* *OMG* *OMG*

                      Right, that is enough for now....

                      Waits for further updates, in a mild state of shock.

                      GreekGeek :-)

                        as I understand it, the OS drivers currently support zero displays on 5xxx

                        the third display isn't more difficult to program than the first two, so I'd expect all three outputs to start working at the same time.

                        Edit: hmm, you can use DVI+DVI+DisplayPort or DVI+HDMI+DisplayPort. Looks like DisplayPort isn't possible yet. Then again, this page claims that DVI over DisplayPort works anyway. So after all, I don't know more than you do.

                          As Nvidia GTX 260 is about as expensive as the HD 5750 I would add it as comparision. Maybe GTX 275 too, even if it currently more expensive. I really dislike that no test mentions the extremely bad xv performance with fglrx. The tearing is so extreme what it is basically useless.

                          Also 8.67 must be 9-11 not 9-10 as 8.65 is the current 9-9 driver.

                            I am also looking for a comparison of the Nvidia GTS 250 and the HD5750, as the 1 GB GTS250s are priced similarly to the HD5750s...

                              GTX 260 has got the same price too, would be much smarter to buy GT200 instead of G92.
