Over the past couple of months Sapphire has been adding a number of interesting products to their range of GPUs. That started with two new Flex models, the 6870 and 6950 and continued a few days ago with the launch of the Xtreme 5850 and 5830 which bring Radeon 5000 series cards up to date at a very competitive price point.

With new 4 cards launched from £80 to £250 we have a bunch of products which are ideal for a roundup to see what we, the consumers, get at each price point. Which of the latest games can each play and are any of them suitable for gaming at 5760×1080. We will answer those questions today as well as looking at media playback and GPU computing performance… all while running on Sapphires X58 Pure Black Motherboard and a Core i7-990X CPU.
