Quoted from ATI Radeon HD 5970 Reviews:Check out these quotes from ATI Radeon HD 5970 reviews & previews
"In summary, there's a long future ahead for the entire Radeon HD 5000 series; and overclocking enthusiasts will be just as pleased with the Radeon HD 5970 as gamers will be, DirectX 11 is the future of gaming, whether the competition likes it or not, and ATI has a huge head-start on absorbing an early market share. Eyefinity is a nice touch and it certainly adds to the gaming experience, but there's such an incredibly small portion of potential users for the technology that shear graphics power is a better sales pitch. The ATI Radeon HD 5970 is perfect for high-performance gamers interested in unparalleled frame rates, and multi-monitor power users wanting triple-panel diversity. Overclockers can push this 'unlocked' Hemlock video card well beyond it's specifications, mainly because that's what it was designed for. The HD5970 is the 'Black Edition' of ATI's Radeon series, and the closest competing product is more than 40% behind."
"About the only downside to the Radeon HD 5970 is cost. The first wave of Radeon HD 5970 cards due to hit etailers today carry a hefty $599 MSRP. In light of its performance and current prices for competing products, $599 is certainly justifiable for the Radeon HD 5970, but we'll miss the days of sub-$400 flagship graphics cards--thank you Radeon HD 5870. Heading into the all important holiday season, it seems AMD's graphics division is in an excellent position. NVIDIA has yet to show its hand with regard to next-gen 3D gaming-oriented GPUs. Currently, AMD's products at every price point from $150 on up to $600 are best-of-class contenders. Here's hoping AMD can make enough of them to satisfy demand and fully fuel development of their next-generation of products."
"The Radeon HD 5970 graphics card is a monster and is the fastest single graphics card in the world!"
"This new dual-GPU king is ready to smash through any game you can throw at it. Is the GTX 295 done for? Are there any games this beast can't handle? "
"The new AMD Radeon HD 5970 graphics card takes PC gaming performance to a completely new level by combining a pair of Evergreen-based GPUs on a single PCB, 2GB of GDDR5 memory and plenty of headroom for overclocking. For a single card system, the performance that the HD 5970 provides is simply unmatched but that does not mean the card is without its slight misgivings. First, the card is LONG and some mid-tower cases will likely have problems getting it installed. Secondly, Eyefinity supports needs to be beefed up and soon – multi-GPU performance is needed nowhere more than at resolutions like 7680x1600 and 5760x1200! You have to pay to play at this level in the PC world, but if you can manage, the AMD Radeon HD 5970 is the best gaming card you can get."
