    when compared to 4670, there is no improvement on neither performance nor power consumption.besides its more expensive and doesn't have a fanless version atm. Reply

    I am not a specialist, but check out how rage3d gets smooth deinterlacing with a simpler card (HD 5550) here: http://www.rage3d.com/reviews/video/sapphire_hd555...

    They combine adaptive vector deinterlacing with other post processing, giving nice results. Have you tried that on the 5570?

    It's probably too late to ask this as this article/thread probably never gets checked anymore, but what PSU was used in the review?

    I'm assuming that it's the standard 750W or higher rated unit that's used for most VGA reviews... but wanted to know how much savings there is to be had by using a low-rated, high-efficiency PSU more suited to a low-power HTPC build.

    Okay, I have an HP a6203w desktop with a Bestec 250w PSU. I am looking for an average cheap replacement to the very crappy nvidia 6150se nforce 430 graphics. I am basing my choice off of the fact that video cards without power connectors use the 75 watts of the PCI slot, and since my full system is stock besides 2 more gigs of ram, I figured it could hold it. Professional opinion? Reply

    I was working on the study of the Radeon HD 5570 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 445M for <a href="http://www.bestdealscomputers.net">my blog</a> .... and look for performance comparisons between the two. Is there someone can help? Reply
