New HD 5700 series is out!?
So then are the HD 5750 and 5770 models better than the 4870? Or does the good ol' HD 4870 still knock these two cards out?

The 4870 and 4890 cards are actually better than the new 5770.
Here is an article from Tomshardware.com for proof.
The 5750 and 5770 both have a smaller bus connecting the GPU to the GDDR5 memory. 128 bits vs the 4870's 256bit. This drastically affects frame rates on newer games.
On the other hand, the 5850 and 5870 are more powerful than the 4800 series.
The only advantage is that the 5000 series support DX11.Source(s): Tomshardware.com

the Radeon 5700 series are way better then the 4800 series.
But the cards are much bigger then the 4800 series cards and don't fit on any average motherboard.
