We recently took a look at Sapphire's HD5750 in this review, and now we're going to see what one of the bigger, faster siblings of the new DirectX 11 capable HD5XXX family has to offer.

The main focus of this review is to feature Sapphire's Radeon HD5850 1GB graphics card, but as an interesting side effect we will also take a look at the CrossFire performance of a pair of these HD5850 cards, as well as a pair of Sapphire's HD5750 cards.
