This morning Sapphire Technology is announcing a new Radeon
graphics card. It's not though part of the Radeon HD 6000 series that
has recently seen the launch of the Radeon HD 6790 or even the Radeon HD
6450, but rather it's a Cypress-based part. Yes, as in the Radeon HD
5800 series. This new graphics card is the Sapphire Radeon HD 5830
Extreme and it has designed to deliver the best performance for the
~$120 USD price point. Here is our look at this new graphics card with
accompanying Linux benchmarks.
