XFX HD 5830 VIDEO CARD INTRODUCTION
With videocard sales starting to ramp up for the third and forth quarter of 2010, the HD 5830 should be following the same brisk sales trend since its release in February. The Radeon HD 5830 has the perfect mix of gaming performance and the lowest MSRP of the 5800 line which has consumers ponying up the extra US$40 versus settling with the HD 5770.
Following every other manufacturer's release, XFX also has their HD 5830 flavor up for grabs with excellent availability and stock in most popular online retail channels. The particular model being reviewed today is nothing fancy is not factory overclocked in any way out of the box. But this doesn't mean that there won't be some overclocking headroom to enable some extra tweaking and get a little more pop out of your money and extend this product's useful life span in order to get your money's worth. So let's see how it compares to the other HD 5830 models I have tested and whether or not it will match them in stock and overclocked form.
Let's see how this card works out.....
