AMD has been on quite a roll lately as far as its GPU business is concerned, the chip manufacturer outing some pretty interesting additions to its ATI Radeon family of products
. And this is also the subject we're going to tackle as follows, namely that of the ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card, which has just been unveiled today and that aims to make DirectX 11 technology and HD playback a little bit more mainstream.
According to AMD, its brand-new ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card
delivers up to 620 GigaFLOPS of compute power and GDDR5 memory. Moreover, it incorporates ATI Eyefinity technology, which enables up to three displays to be used with a single ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card, as well as ATI Stream technology that speeds up video transcoding and improves video playback performance with applications such as Adobe Flash, and helps deliver video enhancements that produce better visual quality.
“AMD recently celebrated the shipment of its two millionth DirectX 11 graphics chip. AMD has already enabled DirectX 11 support for the majority of the PC market and today’s introduction of the ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card is yet another clear indication of AMD’s commitment to address the strong market demand for DirectX 11-capable graphics cards,” said Matt Skynner, vice president and general manager, AMD Graphics Group. “Combined with the successful launches of the ATI Radeon HD 5970, ATI Radeon HD 5800 series and ATI Radeon HD 5700 series, AMD has defined the DirectX 11 gaming experience like no other, bringing graphics innovations like ATI Eyefinity technology and ATI Stream technology to millions of consumers
As we've mentioned right from the start, making this GPU affordable for mainstream customers was a very important issue with AMD, so it should come as no surprise that it has priced the new ATI Radeon HD 5670 at just 99 US dollars, which should make it interesting even for those people who are looking for performance, but are also restrained by a tighter budget.
