ATi Radeon 5770 Performance Test
First I’ll start with 2560×1600 and test a range of games using up to 4xAA. The first three titles can’t have AA forced under DX9 mode on ATi’s cards, so I’ll bench them with AA disabled.
The 5770 is off to a good start, offering a massive 42.57% performance gain over the 4850 overall, and a smaller 7.68% gain overall compared to the 260+. This is a good effort since the 5770 is cheaper than the 260+.
It loves Stalker Clear Sky and it’s twice as fast as the 4850 (largely because of more VRAM no doubt), outruns the 260+ by 21.48%, and almost matches the 285’s performance.
The red team loves Fear 2 even more; the 5770 crushes the 260+ by 47.97% and is 18.41% faster than even the 285. Also the little 4850 significantly outruns the 260+ and gets dangerously close to the 285.
It’s also about the same speed as the 260+ in Call of Juarez 1, but it drops off the pace a bit in the sequel.
The 5770 takes a hit in Bioshock though, coming off 14.27% slower than the 260+.
