Radeon HD 5970 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 5970 has exceptional performance. The levels of performance that can be reached with this graphics card are in fact far and beyond the acceptable ranges when running the latest applications and games. This graphics card is now over 11 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This graphics card will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little driver support from AMD.

With an effective SPU count of 1508, the AMD Radeon HD 5970 processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is extremely power-hungry at 294 Watts, however.
