I’m sure that all computer gamers know just how important a graphics card really is and I’m also sure that the preferences vary, almost equally, between nVidia video cards and ATI Radeon ones. Well… according to the latest reviews, playtests and comparisons, it seems that it’s actually ATI the winner of the award for the fastest graphics card of the moment with the ATI Radeon HD 5970.
The card was compared with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 295, considered the fastest and best graphics card until now and yes, as you now imagine – it kind of managed to beat it.
So… what’s so hot about this card (available for “just” $650)? Well, first of all it’s the fact that there are basically two GPU’s under the same hood, it fully supports DirectX 11 and makes Crysis playable on a 1900×1200 resolution with most of the detail settings to Very High (49 FPS). And that, my friends, is something big!
So yes… my GeForce 9800 GTX seems a bit rust now – even though, to be honest, I can’t complain. Of course, I wouldn’t complain if I had this little baby of an ATI Radeon HD 5970 either, but maybe I’ll wait a bit more for a price drop. If you want to, though, you can get it from Amazon right now and enjoy gaming like a superstar.
