TechSpot: ATI Radeon HD 5570 Review

It's self-evident how AMD has kept us busy over the last few months, showing us new generation GPUs aiming at all possible price points. From the performance-oriented HD 5850/5870, to the mainstream HD 5770 and the extreme dual-GPU powered HD 5970. The budget models had to wait a bit longer.

Today AMD is introducing another new member to the Radeon HD 5000 family -- the eighth installment in the series. The ATI Radeon HD 5570 will sit between the aforementioned Radeon HD 5450 and 5670 in terms of pricing and performance, which means it should deliver a similar level of performance to that of the Radeon HD 4670 at the same starting price of ~$79.

The Radeon HD 5570 is a more powerful GPU than the HD 5450, capable of playing games comfortably at 720p while retaining some of the HTPC-friendly properties that made the latter an attractive buy.

ATi is failing in sub $100 market. There are already older products from them an nvidia that offer more performance for the same price. They should focus in the mainstream market right now as they have no competing new products from Nvidia thus far.

Good - more choice for the consumer.
But they do have to be careful - sometimes having to many choices will turn people away (since they wont know which to buy) and go to another vendor.

Except the big problem with this is they're, once again, tackling a pricepoint with the wrong product. Like the 5670 this card, too, is overpriced for the performance it brings. And it is beaten out by other products in its same price range once again. I wonder what amd hopes to gain by overpricing cards at launch.
