ATI Targets Windows 7 Machines, Makes DirectX 11 Mainstream with GPU Launch

Maximum PC Staff

ATI plans to celebrate next week’s Windows 7 launch with two new DirectX 11 graphics cards . The Radeon HD 5770 and the Radeon HD 5750 will each sport 1GB of GDDR5 memory, and have core clock speeds of 850Mhz and 700Mhz respectively. Other features include two dual-link DVI ports, a HDMI port, and a single 6-pin PCI-E power connector .

The Radeon 5700 series card will be built upon ATI’s new 40nm “Juniper” chip, which consists of 1.04 billion transistors on a 166mm 2 die. The smaller chip makes it possible to ATI to offer the cards at lower prices than the current DirectX 11 capable Radeon 5800 series cards: the HD 5870 and HD 5850. Price for the HD 5770 is set at $159, with the HD 5750 going for $129. ATI will later release a 512MB version of the HD 5750 for $109.
