Recommended System Requirements
Game Radeon HD 5570 1024MB Radeon HD 5570 512MB

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5570 1024MB are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 5570 512MB.

The HD 5570 and the HD 5570 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 5570 and the HD 5570 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB and the Radeon HD 5570 512MB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The HD 5570 has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 5570, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 5570 also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB and the Radeon HD 5570 512MB are the same, which means the HD 5570 and the HD 5570 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB and the Radeon HD 5570 512MB have 400 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

The Radeon HD 5570 1024MB requires 42 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5570 512MB requires 39 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5570 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5570. The HD 5570 requires 3 Watts more than the HD 5570 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 5570 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 5570.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Evergreen series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD graphics products division. The existence was spotted on a presentation slide from AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007 as 'R8xx'. ATI held a press event in the USS Hornet museum on September 10, 2009 and announced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and specifications of the Radeon HD 5800 series' variants. The first variants of the Radeon HD 5800 series were launched September 23, 2009, with the HD 5700 series launching October 12 and HD 5970 launching on November 18 The HD 5670, was launched on January 14, 2010, and the HD 5500 and 5400 series were launched in February of 2010, completing what has appeared to be most of ATI's Evergreen GPU lineup.
Demand so greatly outweighed supply that more than two months after launch, many online retailers were still having trouble keeping the 5800 and 5900 series in stock.
