Summary:

Anandtech
"At the end of the day, with its impressive performance and next-generation feature set, the Radeon HD 5870 kicks off the DirectX 11 generation with a bang and manages to take home the single-GPU performance crown in the process. It’s without a doubt the high-end card to get."

Guru3D
"the reality is that the Radeon HD 5870 is dark, majestic and most definitely a killer."

HardOCP
"Through all of this, Eyefinity, DX11, DirectCompute 11, OpenCL, the Radeon HD 5870 remains true to the focus of just being a desirable gaming video card. One of the most impressive "features" is the fact that it doubles performance, yet remains within the same power envelope as the previous generation. This is impressive. The fact that you can get all of this for around $379 makes it a really good value with a tremendous price/performance ratio compared to the previous generation."

PCGamesHardware
"To make it short: The Radeon HD 5870 is the currently fastest single GPU graphics card on the market and definitely the better solution than any multi GPU solution."

The Tech Report
"The Radeon HD 5870 is the fastest GPU on the planet, with the best visual output, and the most compelling set of features."

Summary:

HardOCP
"For $259 the ATI Radeon HD 5850 smacks the competition then laughs.[---]We think the ATI Radeon HD 5850 is "THE" next-gen video card that gamers and hardware enthusiasts are going to flock to."

AnandTech
"For this fall, we're able to say something we haven't been able to say for quite some time: AMD has the high-end market locked up tight."

The Tech Report
"The Radeon HD 5850 manages to outshine the fastest single-GPU GeForce card overall while costing less, drawing less power, and producing less noise."

The Guru of 3D
"It's a little gem really."

PC Perspective
"The new Radeon HD 5850 is definitely the best card you can get in the $250 price range today and I think is my best overall pick for all gamers."

Hot Hardware
"Gamers in the market for a powerful graphics card, that supports all of the latest technologies, need look no further."

Legit Reviews
"The ATI Radeon HD 5850 is 15-25% slower than the Radeon HD 5870 graphics card, but it also is priced 32% less right off the bat. That, my friends, makes it a price versus performance winner!"

Tom's Hardware
"we’re perfectly comfortable calling the Radeon HD 5850 a solid buy for the reasons a gamer would buy a new graphics card today"

Might be fake article, since they have no new pictures of the actual card there, only those that have been floating around internet for a week or two.

The 4780x2 kicks the 5870's butt in several of the benchmarks, the others it is on par with.

Yea. But we don't know what's min fps for 5870 and 5870 CF in every benchmark yet.

OMG. Look at this!

Lucid Hydra 200 would probably be out soon?

How about the 5870 and 5870 combo with Lucid Hydra 200 and a perfect scaling linear?

LOL at the ncix 9999.99$ price... Looks like lucid can be pricey tho... I wonder how many pcie lanes are really needed for a 2 gpu setup... 16 at least I imagine... at 72$ for 48 lanes its a bit much for a mobo.

CEST time is +2 from Universal Time (central european aka from spain to poland but not the UK)

Eastern time is -4 from Universal Time
Central time is -5 from Universal Time
Mountain time is -6 from Universal Time
Pacific time is -7 from Universal Time

Thus
12:01 am for Eastern
11:01 pm for Central
10:01 pm for Mountain
9:01 for Pacific

So wait everybody it is only going to be another 14 hours.
