my 2 5770's win, 3 5850's extreme will win against a 6990 in price point only losing marginally; at $450 it's a no brainer as James was to suggest. Good review guys; I hope you get on saphires ass with Trixx....aren't they meant for kids? heheh

Makes me sort of wish I was doing a system upgrade right now but I also can't wait to see what the next generation brings. Also their aren't a bunch of AAA games I really want to play right now.

Yeah, I think I should try to waiting for 7000 series. I want a 7950 2GB! So I will pass this and skipped 6800/6900 series.

Are there any actual specs for the 7000 series yet beyond their manufacturing process?

At $140 the 5850 is looking pretty tempting. I am just not sure it will be a big enough upgrade over my gtx 260 192 and the whole lack of AAA titles that really need a better GPU. I probably won't even look at a high end GPU until the next generation of consoles hit.

If you play games like on consoles - i.e. no settings adjustments, driver tweaks, then you won't much difference.

That HD 5850 from Sapphire just got voltage control via Trixx.

http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2162957

Buy that, drop stock 5870 voltage on it and swing for up to 900 on the core. That's a heck of deal for 140usd.

You might be able to OC higher and I don't think you'd need more than that for 1920x. Outside of Metro 2033 maxed, you should be able to play most anything on the market @ 1920x. It should match or slightly pass a stock 5870 @ around 880 on the core.

Nice! Thanks for the heads up.
Currently at 815/1200 1.16V w/ no testing (though, no artifacts idle) Will report back later.

So does this make it a much more substantial upgrade over my GTX 260 192 or should I still wait for the 7000 series?

For that price and possible crossfire with trixx, you can hold off for a good while and save up for a 7000 series, if you were to buy. Depending on your needs/wants and expendetures, it's an option that's viable for you.

950 at 1.18volts 3dmark vantage stable and stalker stable i havent bother with crysis cuz i didnt feel like reinstalilng it, haven't tried lower voltage either but will tweak with it. wouldnt be running with that at the moment as default clock seem to suffice for the games i play but nice to know the limits if i ever need it

Cost of RMA makes these cards disposeable. I have 2 and I am happy with the performance 3DMark 11 scores P8984 CF but physics only works on one card. 1 card vs CF physics the 1 card is faster then running them in CF. BFBC2 Im getting at least 142-160fps with 8XAA and 16X AF , with HBAO on I get 99 to 125 fps @ 1920X1200. I had to remove the heatsink and put on some good stuff I used AC MX-2 and the cards max out at 45C and OC 845 for games 835 for benchmarks and 1250 memory the max overdrive will let me Trixx just doesnt work everything seems to crash hard and resets the cards. I got 2 for $338CAD tax and shipping included. If the dollar had have been what it is now I would have gone EVGA superoverclock HD GTX570 it would have left me with a upgrade path the 5850's doent.

Update: 3DMark 11 up to P9506 with i5 750 and 2 5850 Xtreme and the updated TriXX works now and I still max temp 60C 930 1.16V core 1235 memory with the 2 6 pin connectors I can only guess I just don't have the power to go much higher but Im sure I can. I was the first to break 10,000 in 3DMark2k1 with ATI 8500 way back when.

Looks like tiger direct and circuit city bumped the price up to $160. Amazon still has it at $150 with a 2-3 week wait.

The demand and price seemed like they got a bump from Trixx support.

I decided to pull the trigger and buy it off amazon. Because I live in Ca, and have to pay taxes on newegg stuff, the price difference isn't that great. Still would have been nice not to wait so long.

Given the limited supply of these cards I am not expecting to be able to go crossfire in the future unless I can get one used.

These are going cheaper than what I sold my 5850's for 2nd hand, nice price and cheap CFX ftw imo.

Roadburn is still being judged by the masses

Funny my old 7900GTX heat sink fits like it was made for it the 5850Xtreme and it also cools the memory not just the GPU and the fan power plug also fits and works. I just wish I could find another, its a damn good HS as good as any after market. I also get P5451 with a single card but 9506 seems to be the max 4.5Ghz is the best I can get the i5 750 to go no matter how high the voltage even at 1.6V so I will stay @ 1.4V @ 4.4 24/7. Now that I have had some time to find the sweat spots on the clock speeds BFBC2 8XAA , 16X AF with HBOA on I see 162 fps alot with Fraps but the average is still in the high 140's . CPU never gets over 40C and CF 5850's may get to the mid 50's now that the thermal goop has set and the GTX HS drops the temp 10C compared to the stocker @ 1.150v. The speedier card default voltage is .993v compared to the other at 1.083v.

What is to hot for a 5850? As a place to start I bumped up the voltage to 1.16V and inched up the clock to 900. At this setting it sits at about 80C edit: while running a Furmark Burn-in.

edit2: BTW still playing with it and I love how smoothly this card handles crashes. Just freezes up for a minute and then a brief screen flicker later everything is back to normal.

edit3: Seems to be stable in Furmark at 901 with voltage at 1.15 V. I tried to get higher, but had to raise the voltage substantially to get much past 910 without periodic crashes. Also the fan was starting to break 85%. Tomorrow I will mess with the memory clock, though I don't imagine it makes a huge performance difference.

80C in furmark is low. Worry when you hit 95C.

Is there any voltage limit I should worry about?

I don't like to go over ~1.225 to 1.237.

I have the 5850 toxics which unfortunately have different voltage regs on them so you can't change the voltage. Saying that these are stable at 900/1300 24/7 and thats at default 1.008v.

I can get them to 1000/1300 at this voltage too but I don't want to push it too much
