ATI Radeon HD 5770: specs and benchmarks

ATI Radeon HD 5770


ATI started Radeon HD 5770 sales 13 October 2009 at a recommended price of 159 USD. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 76.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 208 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 108 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.56 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
