ATI Releases The New Radeon HD 5670

ati logoToday ATI takes the wraps of their newest mid/low range cards, the new Radeon 5600 series, more specifically Radeon HD 5670.

The new cards; fully support Microsoft DirectX 11 as well as featuring ATI's Eyefinity technology. Priced at about $100 USD these new budget minded cards are in direct competition against NVIDIA's GeForce GT 240 and the much older Geforce 9800GT products.

AMD has nicknamed the 40-nm chip based Radeon HD 5670's GPU "Redwood," keeping with the naming scheme of its previously released DirectX 11 Evergreen family. The new cards will come in either 512MB or 1GB version featuring a 775MHz core, and 1GHz(4GHz data rate) on the GDDR5 RAM. With a 128-bit memory bus giving; the card 64GB/sec of memory bandwidth.

“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 worldwide.”

Reading the reviews shows these new mainstream DX 11 cards from ATI to be a hit. They perform well against the older ATI cards and most of the NVIDIA offerings from the same price range. The cards don't offer the performance figures that would be desirable to the hard core gamer but they do offer a solid mainstream bang-for-buck gaming solution.
