ATI Radeon HD 5970: five teraflops

    The ATI Radeon HD 5970, codenamed Hemlock, will be available soon. AMD's top manager said in an interview that mass production had already begun, so sales could begin in the very near future.

    According to a review by Tom's Hardware , the ATI Radeon HD 5970 is "the most powerful standalone graphics card in the world."

    The specifications are truly amazing. Two GPUs with a total of 4.3 billion transistors, as well as 3200 separate units for processing streams and 160 for processing textures. The maximum screen resolution (s) is 7680x1600. Support for DirectX 11. Possibility of the “strongest overclocking”: the design of the card and the advanced cooler, according to AMD, maximize the frequency overclocking over the limit set in the specifications.

    The retail price of the ATI Radeon HD 5970 will be around $ 600.
