Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, AMD ha annunciato al grande pubblico una nuova scheda grafica che va ad arricchire la già ampia linea di video card ATI Radeon HD 5000.
L'ultima arrivata in casa AMD è la ATI Radeon HD 5570, una soluzione low-profile e low-power, indirizzata ai computer desktop di tipo HTPC (Home Theater PC) e, più in generale, a quelli di tipo SFF (Small Form Factor PC), con la quale AMD punta a permettere una elaborazione grafica di alto livello, in ambito gaming, HD playback a 1080p e grafica applicativa, con i sistemi di cui sopra.
Al pari delle altre varianti ATI Radeon HD 5000, anche la ATI Radeon HD 5570 supporta le tecnologie ATI Eyefinity, ATI Stream e naturalmente le librerie grafiche DirectX 11 di Microsoft e Windows 7.
In accordo al produttore, la nuova video card, che è compatibile con HDMI 1.3a e audio in Dolby TrueHD e DTS-HD Master, performa al meglio delle sue possibilità se abbinata alla recente cpu AMD Phenom II X4 905e e a un chipset della gamma AMD 7-series.
