Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 Extreme

Filed under
Hardware

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.

The Radeon HD 5830 graphics processor was originally introduced by AMD back in February of 2010, but Sapphire is launching their new Extreme version of this "Cypress LE" graphics card at a time when the costs are down as the Radeon HD 6000 series is becoming mainstream. Sapphire says this HD 5830 re-launch will be exclusive to them and that they have obtained aggressive prices. This new graphics card has DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort outputs to support three displays via Eyefinity, 1GB of video RAM, a new heatpipe-based cooling solution, optimized voltage regulation circuitry, etc.

Welcome to year two of Google Hardware. In 2016, Google jumped into the Android hardware space with its first self-branded device, the Google Pixel. Google's software prowess shined on the Pixel 1, offering up exclusive features like the Google Assistant, the best Android camera thanks to advanced software processing, fast day-one OS updates and betas, and the smoothest, best-performing overall build of Android. The killer software package made it the best Android phone of the previous generation. The Pixel still represented Google's first foray into smartphone hardware, though, and it didn't offer anything special in the hardware department. It was a bland-looking iPhone clone. It had the same specs and basic design as everything else. The Pixel even skipped water resistance, which had become an expected feature at that price point. Google said it wanted to make its own hardware, but it didn't actually build special hardware. Read more
