In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 5850 2048MB.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 321 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 5850. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 81.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 321 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5850 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 10.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 770 was released over three years more recently than the HD 5850, and so the GeForce GTX 770 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 5850 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 770 and the Radeon HD 5850 2048MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 96.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5850, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5850 2048MB has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5850 is 522. The GeForce GTX 770 having 1145 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GTX 770 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5850. This means that the GeForce GTX 770 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5850 2048MB requires 185 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 5850. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 45 Watts more than the HD 5850 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 5850.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Evergreen series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD graphics products division. The existence was spotted on a presentation slide from AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007 as 'R8xx'. ATI held a press event in the USS Hornet museum on September 10, 2009 and announced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and specifications of the Radeon HD 5800 series' variants. The first variants of the Radeon HD 5800 series were launched September 23, 2009, with the HD 5700 series launching October 12 and HD 5970 launching on November 18 The HD 5670, was launched on January 14, 2010, and the HD 5500 and 5400 series were launched in February of 2010, completing what has appeared to be most of ATI's Evergreen GPU lineup.
Demand so greatly outweighed supply that more than two months after launch, many online retailers were still having trouble keeping the 5800 and 5900 series in stock.
