News From Inside The Industry


January 14, 2010

AMD has introduced the ATI Radeon HD 5670, a graphics card that brings Microsoft DirectX 11 gaming to a $99 price point. The bargain brother of the Radeon HD 5970, 5800, and 5700 series, the 512MB card supports ATI Stream technology for accelerated video transcoding and HD playback, while ATI Eyefinity enables up to three displays to be used with a single Radeon HD 5670 card (one DisplayPort monitor or adapter required for more than two displays).

According to AMD, the card delivers up to 620 gigaflops of computing power and GDDR5 memory, beating Nvidia's GT 240 by at least 20 percent in a selection of today's most popular games as well as the latest DirectX 11 titles like Codemaster's Colin McRae: DiRT 2 and EA Phenomic's BattleForge. The company boasts that it has shipped 2 million DirectX 11 graphics chips to date.
