AMD’s new Radeon HD 5970 is a dual-GPU card. It is 2 Cypress dice mounted on a single, dual-slot video card. AMD clocks it at 725MHz core and 1GHz (4GHz effective) for GDDR5 memory. The card comes equipped with 2GB of GDDR5, which’s split between two GPUs, giving it an effective memory capacity of 1GB. In addition to killer performance, Radeon HD 5970 also boasts all features of Radeon HD 5800 series, like full DirectX 11 support, top-notch image quality and power efficiency. AMD recommend a 750W power supply for this card, and is also launching Crossfire Eyefinity support with 5970 for 22 games – currently AMD is using whitelisting and is enabling games on a case-by-case basis. Crossfire Eyefinity will make its way in to the mainstream Catalyst drivers and be enabled for other cards early next year.
