The three HD 5770 cards are identical in clock speed and nearly identical in performance. The performance differences between the three cards are within the expected difference of running the same card on the same system on two different benchmark runs. The same is true of the two HD 5750 cards. As all five cards are based on the reference design performance should be very similar across the cards.
