ATI Radeon HD 5970 – World’s Fastest Graphics Card

AMD is serious on Gaming, we don’t doubt. Today, AMD has announced their newest graphics card, the ATI Radeon HD 5970, which had been in news for a while known as “the fastest card ever created.

AMD is claiming that this graphics card breaks several older records. Besides being the fastest, it’s the one of the first to provide support for Microsoft DirectX 11 and Eyefinity multi-display (that’s three displays at once) at a max resolution of 7680×1600. Talking about the Horsepower, it delivers approximately 5 TeraFLOPS of computer power (and up to 10TeraFlops when combined with ATI CrossFireX).

Inside DirectX 11 – Dx11

The HD 5970, by default, is capable of being Overclocked. And there is no need to worry much about heating, the advance onboard fan does cool the card pretty nicely due to the new vapor chamber technologies and a vented exhaust.

Radeon HD 5970 specifications

GPUs runs at 725MHz, that the graphics card has 3200 stream processors (2×1600) and that it has 2GB GDDR5 memory.
The rest of specification includes 160 texture units, 116 Gtexel/second texture fill rate, compute performance of 4.64 Tflops as well as 64 ROPs. Pixel fillrate is 46.4Gpixels/s, Z / stencil is at 185.6 Gsamples/s and the memory data rate is 4.0 Gbps.

Maximum board power is 294W, while the idle power is 42W. Let’s not forget that the card has two DVI ports and DisplayPort, something that barely anyone needs.

In celebration of their fancy new card and their 40th birthday, AMD is also sponsoring a contest, starting today, where participants could win one of 10 Microsoft Xbox 360s or one of 10 Wiis from Nintendo. You can enter by becoming a fan of AMD on Facebook.

Update: AMD has added a video to demonstrate the power:

The Radeon HD 5970 is now available for sale with a hefty price tag of $599. Gamers, game on.
