In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5570 1024MB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1950 Series.

The HD 5570 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1950 Series, and so the HD 5570 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon X1950 Series when running the latest games.

The HD 5570 has 768 MB more video memory than the Radeon X1950 Series, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon X1950 Series has superior memory performance.

The Radeon X1950 Series has 35.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5570, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1950 Series is noticeably better than the HD 5570.

The Radeon HD 5570 1024MB has 400 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1950 Series has 36. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 5570 is 169 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1950 Series is 12. The HD 5570 having 157 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1950 Series performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 5570 1024MB requires 42 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon X1950 Series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5570 and a PSU with at least 420 Watts for the Radeon X1950 Series. The Radeon X1950 Series has been recommended a PSU with 20 Watts more than the HD 5570. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon X1950 Series 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.
Radeon X1950 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon X1950 GT, Radeon X1950 XT, Radeon X1950 Pro and Radeon X1950 XTX whose rank is a balance between the four and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
