Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870 SO Summary

The Radeon HD 5870 model from Gigabyte we used for our tests leaves a very positive impression. It refused to overclock at its default GPU voltage, but it already comes with pre-overclocked frequencies: 950 MHz GPU and 1250 (5000) MHz memory. This card is built with high-quality components and offers handy management and monitoring options. Its cooler easily keeps the GPU temperature below 60°C and doesn’t produce much noise. We recommend the Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870 SO (GV-R587SO-1GD) to everyone who wants a fast and reliable version of Radeon HD 5870. It won’t disappoint you.
