AMD/ATI Radeon 5000-series cards continue to dominate the review world as they have since the first HD 5870 card was released last September. Today is no exception with a pair of ATI cards being reviewed including the latest member of the 5000-series lineup, the HD 5450, with this entry coming from Sapphire (also reviewed by OCC here). AMD hasn't been idle on the CPU front either with five new processors released in the last week of January. Our roundup has a look at one of those, the Athlon II X4 635, today (you can also check out the OCC review here).
