ASUS Radeon HD 5850 1GB DirectCu TOP Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have posted a review of the ASUS Radeon HD 5850 1GB DirectCu TOP graphics card.
Let's see what they had to say:
"When we reviewed the HD 5770 Super Overclock from Gigabyte, we came down on its lack of clock speed increases like a ton of bricks. ASUS on the other hand has shown us the way things should be done when it comes to pre-overclocked, custom cooled graphics cards. The TOP DirectCu showed us meaningful real-world performance increases and its heatsink did exactly what was promised: it provided excellent temperatures at low decibel levels.
Overall performance isnt everything and through its use of higher clock speeds, excellent temperatures and higher efficiency we believe the ASUS HD 5850 TOP is more appealing than most of the GTX 470 cards currently available. As such, it rightfully receives our Dam Good Award."
Along with the MSI Radeon HD 5850 Twin Frozr II, this is definitely one of the best Radeon HD 5850 models on the market.
