Turkish tech site Donanim Haber heard from AMD that they still believe that their ATI Radeon HD 5830 card offers better value than the GeForce GTX 460, even though most reviews seem to indicate the opposite. The feature set is somewhat different, but performance-wise it can't be denied that the GeForce GTX 460 does better in games than the Radeon HD 5830.
"According to news published by donanimhaber.com, AMD claims that ATi Radeon HD 5830 still better than GeForce GTX 460.
AMD underlines that;
Huge processing power for gaming and ATI Stream applications
ATI Eyefinity technology with support for up to 6 displays (depending on card and configuration) from a single card
7.1 HBR audio for Blu-Ray bit streaming of DTS Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD
And also they say;
Specifically, the GTX 460 with 768MB frame buffer goes head to head with our ATI Radeon HD 5830, a product that for a similar price delivers a larger frame buffer (very important both for today’s games and even richer, more detailed DirectX 11 games to come).
Last but not least, because of our lead in delivering DirectX 11 graphics hardware to market, the majority of DX 11 game developers are using ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series hardware, and the vast majority of DX 11 gamers are experiencing the latest titles on our ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series products."
