I have a started an informal poll of users with the Radeon HD 5000 series graphics card installed on their system here in our forums to help me diagnose a potential issue.  The area we are focusing on is monitor/display noise in both 3D and Windows mode of the graphics card with varying monitors, etc.

Oh AMD, you and your paper launches

To get the bad news out of the way first, the new HD 5670 from AMD is not yet available anywhere but is targeted for around a $100 price point.  Sometime in the next few days to a week we should start seeing the cards, but AMD has to be very careful as to the pricing.

DX11 continues to shrink

The new Radeon HD 5670 brings a 40nm DX11-ready graphics card to the sub-$100 market for the first time ever! Can this new GPU put the screws to NVIDIA's lackluster GeForce GT 240 card while keeping prices low? Stop in and read how AMD is hoping to revolutionize gaming for even those of us without thick wallets.

Speculating on the HD5830

AMDs next graphics card will be the HD5830, with performance in between the HD5770 and HD5850 and a price to match.  eTechnix speculates that it will be a downclocked HD5850 with a 128-bit memory bus using GDDR3 instead of GDDR5. 
Hopefully it will sit right around a $200 price point, making it easier to upgrade your card or to slap in a second card for a Crossfire rig.

Our good friends at NVIDIA took us around their booth at the Consumer Electronics Show to show us some new tablets that included their new Tegra 2 CPU as well as give us a demonstration of their next-gen GF100 graphics processor. Ryan and the rest of the PC Perspective team also got a quick overview of D-Link's new Boxie Box and checked out Electronic Art's game called Need for Speed SHIFT using NVIDIA's 3DVision glasses and the GF100 with Fermi architecture.

Even though the next-generation GF100 GPU is not rumored to be available until March, NVIDIA was showcasing the technology and what it can do.  We have discussed NVIDIA Surround in a basic manner already and we'll have more later but I wanted to show our readers another demonstration that we captured on video from the show floor.  In it you will see a system based around a Fermi GPU do some impressive GPU compute simulations in a game-style settings.

A shining and bright look at the new multi-GPU option

We have been waiting with baited breath for the arrival of a LucidLogix Hydra board that is freely tested and reported on and now thanks to AnandTech we do.  The MSI Big Bang Fuzion is ready for launch and it seems that the delay was unquestionably necessary.  The performance numbers are not awful, but neither do they beat the native multiGPU solutions from nVIDIA and AMD.  There were also issues with games that were on the supported list, something that is never endearing to a consumer.  Drop
