AMD releases budget Direct X 11 graphics card

AMD recently unveiled the ATI Radeon HD 5770 and ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics cards, adding two more models to the world’s first and only suite of graphics cards to fully support Microsoft Direct X 11 technology and ATI Eyefinity multi-monitor support.

With the addition of the ATI Radeon  HD 5700 series, AMD is providing PC gamers and multimedia enthusiasts with four choices to better utilise Microsoft Windows 7.

“The ATI Radeon HD 5800 series reaffirmed AMD as the undisputed leader in visual computing technology,” said Gaith Kadir, General Manager, Middle East, Turkey and Africa “Now, the ATI Radeon HD 5700 series takes the same great features like ATI Eyefinity and ATI Stream technology as well as full hardware support for all DirectX 11 features, and bundles them into products priced well below $200.”

“I have to say that even the most enthusiastic reviews of ATI Eyefinity don’t fully capture just how impressive this technology is, not to mention the potential opportunities and applications it unlocks.  AMD has taken a bold step forward by enabling three, and soon six, monitors from one graphics card,” said Jon Peddie, founder, Jon Peddie Research.
