You probably have had the chance to try out Windows 7 by now, but if you're not sure how to go about using the new features of the OS, fret not! Here at www.hardwarezone.com, we've got the videos to guide you along your new journey into the Windows 7 experience.

Sporting fewer stream processors and lower clock speeds than the Radeon HD 5870, the Radeon HD 5850 has thus far been largely overlooked. Today, we are checking out the little brother of the Cypress range to see what kind of performance it brings to the table.

In an attempt to simulate the performance of the upcoming Radeon HD 5870 X2, we put a pair 5870 cards together in CrossFireX and compare it with two 4870 X2 cards. Along the way, we also examined how such a configuration would perform on an Intel X38 and an X58 setup.
