ATI Technologies Rage3D Reviews HIS' HD 5550 & HD 5570 Video Cards, and Previews 'Llano'

Earlier this year HIS refreshed the HD 5500 series with 512MB GDDR5 equipped silent editions. We test out the HD 5550 and 5570 video cards, try some Crossfire, and make a 'pretend Llano APU' with them. Take a look at what may just be your next HTPC video card!

real quick.. maybe its just me but the white text is the graphs on top of the silver R3D logo makes it extremely hard to read the card descriptions.. (nickpicking I guess)

"Review's" ?? Gratuitous use of apostrophe!! You haz a F!!



Great review, and it was nice to see the pseudo-Llano results. The 5570 GDDR5 and 5670 actually look to be decent 720p/no AA gaming cards for those hoping to do a littel HTPC gaming. I'd personally like to see how they can handle a few controller-happy titles like Bioshock I, Mirror's Edge, Gears of War, Lost Planet, RE5 or Dark Void @ 1280x720...

Actually, the sorta-Llano setup basically in some ways equates to my old media/gaming PC, which had a 939 x2 3800+ and an HD 3850 AGP. In other words it looks like it might choke on Bad Company 2 and America's Army v3, but could still hang with a few other newer titles.

Again, nice review.

About that red color though.... it's not too easy on the eyes, feels like I'm reading in Hell.

I see what you're talking about. We'll see if we can't adjust that.

OK, we can tweak that. Thanks for the feedback Don't forget mouseover brings up the details as well.
