AMD has added an energy-efficient, low-profile card to its ATI Radeon HD 5000 series of DirectX 11-capable graphics cards. The Radeon HD 5570 (approximately $85) is tailor-made for small-form-factor PCs and home theater systems destined for what AMD calls "Eye-Definition entertainment."
In addition to DirectX 11 and earlier game titles, the 5570 supports ATI Eyefinity multidisplay technology for two- or (with a DisplayPort monitor and adapter) three-screen computing, as well as ATI Stream technology that helps speed video transcoding and playback performance with applications such as Adobe Flash. HDMI 1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support ensure a premium media PC experience. AMD suggests that OEMs team the 5570 card with the power-thrifty Phenom II X4 905e processor and an AMD 7 Series chipset.
