^^ Nice write up.

It sucks that so few mobile devices support the drag and drop conversion feature, that is really nice. Also some interesting PhysX info there, stuff I had not seen anywhere else.

I still think this card is too slow for its price point, but only because AMD dropped the price of the 4870 so drastically over its product cycle. Is there going to be a 5830 or similar?

Thanks

I don't think there will be a 5830, more likely just price squeeze on the 5850 to the $200 price point.

If you remember when then 4850 launched, it was performing lower than this for the same (or more) money; this is a great mid-range that supports the high end and gives options for the less spendy consumer.

Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Review
Great review, thanks (I'm blind or where is the resolution used in the tests? )
(something wrong on page 8,10, when i click to the "next" its not continue the test in the same window, its opening page 9,11 in a new window.)

Thanks for catching that vertex_shader. Fixed. Also, all tests in the review were run at a resolution of 1680x1050.

Welcome to 2009
The 4850 might have launched at $199 in the summer of 2008, but it's currently $89.99, while the 4870, which is generally faster, can be had for $125 (512MB) or $145 (1GB). So yes, if the 5770 had been released in 2008, it would have been a great mid-range card. Now it's just an average mid-range card with better features, but rather poor value compared to existing mid-range cards.

The 4850 was AMD's highend, second to the 4870, so I don't get your point?

Sure in exsisting games its around the speed of 4850/4870, but DX11 should be taking off better then DX10 did so it will have its benefits. For $160 its not a bad card at all esp good for photoshopers or others who need a cheap 3-monitor supported card.

Great job jim!

Enjoyed the review, LOVE that you included supersampling 8x mode for all the gaming benchmarks. From the looks of it 8x SSAA at my native res (1280x1024) is playable on this card in almost all games (except crysis maybe... ).

One question though, can you verify the card's "overcurrent protection" via downclocking? I thought that was only a feature on the 5800 series, if it's on the 57xx too that would be great.

I just built the system in my sig 2 weeks ago and the XFX 4870 I installed had fan issues so I knew I was going to swap it out and grabbed a 5770 based on this review being so close to my actual system. Glad I did, great card that in my experience performs identically to the 4870 1GB. I don't game a ton, but I like what I see so far.

The overall drop in temps is amazing and the fan noise far better than my last card. I've kind of vowed to stay in the mid-range for my PCs now, the bang for buck these days is amazing and then when the urge to tinker/upgrade overwhelms me I'm not spending too much for small increases in performance.

AFAIK the fourth powerplay state is common to all Terascale 2 based reference designs; obviously the partners have some control over clocks so they may choose to implement different clock speeds for 3d than stock, and they have choice over the VRM's to use so they may pick ones that are more sensitive to setting that overcurrent or temp protection feature.

Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for taking the time to respond.
