Dx11 is really the difference here. Looks like they decided to make a budget Dx11 card, only problem is its overpriced lol

How do you figure? 5830's at stock clocks score 3K+ Points more then a 5770 in vantage

Look at the difference between the 5770, 5830, and 5850. The 5830 performs about the same as a 4890 that sells for the same as a 5770.

Not anymore it doesn't. Driver from the 10.3a's have put a distance between the two.

My vantage score jumped 700 points on stock clocks from the new driver on my 5830

I am glad that worked for you, but 700 points in vantage means nothing to most people.

In games, its performance is still much less per $$ than the 5770, 5850, and 4890. The SP's are there for much better performance still. They either have lots of work left to do in the drivers for this card, or they have a serious design issue.

4890 w/800SP's and 256-GDDR5 bus.......5830 w/1120 SP's and 256-GDDR5 bus. That is 40% increase in SP's with newer technology.

The price difference isn't justified by the performance difference. I understand the drivers for this particular card are young, but the HD5xxx cards have been out for months now. The 5830 should have a steeper increase on drivers.

I hope it goes up a good bit, I would buy 2 of them if they get 10% more out of them.
