Default AMD ATI 5670 Pictured and Detailed

AMD is looking to keep a good thing going with the momentum they have built up with the recent release of their Evegrean lineup.

Pretty sweet card for budget builds, but why the hell do they still put natively installed VGA ports on? Dual-DVI is a much better solution these days.

Wonder how it will compare to a 4770 in performance (shaders are down: 400 vs 640, but clock is up a touch: 775 vs 750, and memory is up 1000 vs 800). How much will the increased clocks make up for the lack of shaders??

It will likely fall below, since the hd 5750 only wins out over the 4770 by 5-15% from what I have read. It will be a great budget card, but it could be better if they didn't have to worry about competing with the 5750.
