AMD ATI Radeon 5670: the First $99 Graphics Card with DirectX11 Support

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. A week ago, the company unveiled the world's first mobile solutions with DirectX11 support: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5700, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5600, and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400.

Today AMD released the mainstream ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card with the estimated price of $95-99, which is a kind of psychological threshold. ATI Radeon HD 5670 is well-suited for a wide range of tasks, including games, movies, etc. It also supports the Eyefinity technology, which allows connecting up to three monitors (2560x1600 each) simultaneously.

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.
