Radeon HD 5870 1024MB Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 5870 1024MB is a High-End GPU part of the Evergreen HD 5000 family. HD 5870 wears the Cypress XT, which allows for 1600 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Texture units increase from the Cypress Pro HD 5850 chip improves HD 5870 Filtering capabilities, while still mantaining the 256-bit Memory interface on GDDR5. Most modern demanding games will run on Ultra settings on Full HD, whereas really demanding games such as Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3 will require lowered Aliasing settings in order to achieve fluent FPS on 1080p. Power draw is rather overwhelming, and gamers looking to get this GPU will need a decent 500W PSU with two PCIe connectors.
