While it may sound like we don’t care much for the HD 5570, that couldn’t be further from the truth. When taken by itself, this is one card that can act as the perfect bridge between the low priced spectrum and higher-end cards that are out of most consumers’ reach. However, in such a cluttered market, the HD 5570 becomes an hard sell from a purely gaming perspective. Basically, it all comes down to price and as we saw with the HD 5450, the HD 5570 is slightly more expensive than it should be but it serves as a perfectly reasonable follow-up to the card it replaces.
That confused me a fair bit. You said "4670 is better, GT240 is better" but then said it's pretty good anyways, albeit lacking at gaming. "Perfectly reasonable follow-up" also confuses me.

No idea what happened with the graphs. Should be fixed now.

It is because you will soon not be able to find ANY HD 4670 and the HD 5570 adds support for Eyefinity and DX11 along with lower efficiency. So, it is a good follow-up since the HD 4670 won't be around for much longer.

So, it's a 4670 basically, minus HDMI. I must also add that's a huge minus to an HTPC card, there are adapters but it's an unnecessary pain. I guess a numbered rating system would be good in that regard

Lower efficiency, or lower power consumption?
