After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Of course all of this upgrading costs money and for some people upgrading computers is a struggle between getting good performance and features with a minimum of expense. In this review we will be looking at a brand new card from Sapphire called the HD5670. As the name suggests the card is based on the ATI Radeon HD 5670 GPU and supports many of the features found in 5000 including Eyefinity and Crossfire.
