First Round Summary

Here you can see the edges of the raw performance the HD5970 offers. It's marketed as the world's fastest graphics card - a name it lives up to quite easily, and it looks like there is no competition on the horizon until at least Q1 2010.

AMD's decision to maintain PCIe power specification requirements have paid off, with Alienware jumping to feature them in their product line up. The overclocking headroom and design show promise, for those who might consider a 5870 Crossfire-X setup but don't have the requisite motherboard or power supply; we'll look at that, and more performance results soon.  Stay tuned!
