Today we have another graphics card from HIS to test. This time around we will be focusing our attention on the HIS HD 5830 1GB PCI-e. This is a product that sits somewhere between the 5770 and 5850 both in terms of price and performance.
Currently here in Canada the most popular online retailers like NewEgg.ca and NCIX.com have 5830’s selling for anywhere from $210 to $279 depending on the manufacturer and bundle being offered. The reference clocked HIS 5830 iCooler V is currently listed on NewEgg.ca for $226 CDN.
When it comes to reviewing the HD 5830 it is a difficult choice as to what type of system to build around the card. Since it falls between the 5770 and 5850 we have opted to use our 1055T powered system, it should be interesting to see how close it will come to the performance of the HD 5850 we just looked at recently.
We don’t expect the HIS 5830 to perform on par to the 5850 but we believe our tests will show that the HD 5830 provides good performance for a card that is priced close to $200.
