Today, we are looking at the HD5670
Ultimate Edition. This card has 400 Stream Processors and
sports 1GB of the latest DDR5 memory. It has clock speeds of
775MHz core and 1000MHz (4GHz effective) for the memory. What
makes this card special, is its massive passive cooling system.
It delivers the same performance as fan cooled models, but with a
totally silent heatpipe cooler, making it the fastest silent cooled
graphics card available today. Let's check it out to see how
well it performs.
technology maximises your field of view across up to
three displays, fully engaging your peripheral vision.
For gamers this puts you right IN the game and for other
applications it helps to increase productivity by
maximising your visual workspace so that you can see
more windows simultaneously. ATI Eyefinity technology is
also ideal for multimedia applications as it allows you
to keep several ‘palettes’ or ‘panels’ open over a
larger workspace whist you edit your images or videos.
GDDR5 memory provides twice the bandwidth per pin of
GDDR3 memory, delivering more speed and higher
Cutting edge manufacturing
process allows for efficient, high performance parts
which use less power than their predecessors.
Accelerate the most demanding
applications with ATI Stream technology and do more with
your PC. ATI Stream Technology allows you to use the
teraflops of compute power locked up in your graphics
processer on tasks other than traditional graphics such
as video encoding, at which the graphics processor is
many, many times faster than using the CPU alone.
