GigaByte Techology, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has released two new graphics cards based on ATI’s new Radeon HD 5700 series in India.
The first is the GigaByte GV-R577D5-1GD-B, which comes with 1GB DDR5 RAM and is based on the ATI Radeon HD 5770 architecture. The second card is the GigaByte GV-R575D5-1GD, which also has 1GB DDR5 RAM and is based on the ATI Radeon HD 5750 architecture.
The GigaByte HD 5700 Series graphics cards provide support for Microsoft DirectX 11, ATI Eyefinity Technology, ATI Stream technology, Quad mode ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU, UDV 2 and PowerPlay; thus offering an immersive HD gaming experience and unrivaled performance.
The GigaByte HD 5700 Series graphics cards feature ATI's latest 2nd Generation TeraScale graphics engine, boasting the power of more than 2 teraFLOPS with 800 and 720 stream processors respectively. With 1GB GDDR5 memory, the GigaByte HD 5700 Series provides twice the data per pin of GDDR3 memory at the same clock speeds.
Utilising the ATI Eyefinity Technology, each gamer can run up to 3 displays from a single graphics board and expand the field of view across all displays. This is perfect for gamers who like to enjoy the ultimate gaming experience with innovative “wrap around” multi-displays.
Furthermore, benefiting from ATI Stream Technology, end-users can easily unleash the massive parallel processing power of GPU for physics, artificial intelligence, stream computing and ray tracing calculations, and tackle demanding tasks like video transcoding with incredible speed.
In addition, GigaByte HD 5700 Series graphics cards fully support for Microsoft DirectX 11 for life-like realism and stunning 3D gaming effects. Gamers can get striking 3D visual effects and dynamic interactivity with DirectX 11 support, including features like Tessellation, HDR Texture Compression, Multi-threading and DirectCompute.
In order to provide the best digital audio/video interconnection between a computer and display monitor or home-theater system, the GigaByte HD 5700 Series graphics cards are capable of outputting DisplayPort signals. The DisplayPort interface can support higher resolutions, richer colour depth, and increased refresh rate performance, delivering 10.8Gbps of bandwidth over previous generations of connectivity options such as DVI, LVDS and VGA, as well as normal HDMI – thus making it compatible with large-screen home theatre displays.
And if you are concerned that all this will take up a lot of power, worry not: The GigaByte GV-R5700 series is equipped with ATI PowerPlay technology for breakthrough power and consumption, maximising performance per watt by delivering the highest level of high performance when needed and conserving power when the demand on the GPU is low.
The HD5770-based GigaByte GV-R577D5-1GD-B can be bought now for Rs. 10,900. More details about it can be found here.
The HD5750-based GigaByte GV-R575D5-1GD retails at Rs. 9,900, and offers more information at this site.
