With the EAH5870 ASUS presents
a single-GPU graphics card with overwhelming performance. This is especially impressive if you consider that the card is based on
ATI's the reference design.
The fact that ATI was able to double the bandwidth as well as all the
other specifications of the RV870 GPU shows very clearly if we look at the
benchmark results. Especially using high resolutions and maximum details levels
the RV870 chip really shows its muscles. Therefore we see that the numbers
decrease much less than they did with it's predecessor the RV790. The new design
makes the Radeon HD 5870 easily the fastet single-GPU card available on the
market. Furthermore the card is also able to handle DirectX11 and is therefore a
safe investment for a gamer who doesn't want to change his graphics card ever
The ASUS EAH5870
G 2DIS aims at hardware- and gaming-enthusiasts which do not want any compromises
at all, which is nothing more than the logical conclusion from price and performance.
Buying a 5870 would also mean that you consider that you have a powerful CPU in
your system that card can really show all of its potential. Therefore as already
mentioned for a gamer who doesn't want to buy a new graphics card every half
year, the 5870 is definitely the right choice.
The ASUS EAH5870 G 2DIS can be bought at Digitec to a price of CHF 499.- (est. EUR 333.-)
