Following its roadmap, AMD continues to introduce DirectX11-supporting devices into all price ranges. The deployment started in September 2009 with the rollout of the high-end ATI Radeon HD 5800. In October 2009, they released the mid-end ATI Radeon HD 5700, while in November 2009 it was the turn of the top-end dual-GPU ATI Radeon HD 5970.

The 40nm GPU features 400 stream processors, the core clock rate is 775 MHz, the GDDR5 memory capacity can be 512MB or 1 GB, the memory clock rate is 1 GHz, the also features 627M transistors and performs at 620 GFLOPS. Another advantage of the ATI Radeon HD 5670 is that it's energy-efficient, the typical power consumption being 61W (14W idle).
The only market price range left unattended is the entry-level. The corresponding ATI Radeon HD 5500 and ATI Radeon HD 5400 are scheduled for release in February.
