AMD has debuted the ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card, both powerful and budget-friendly.

The HD 5670 graphics card supports ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology (up to three, maybe four someday) and Microsoft DirectX 11, plus the old DirectX 9, 10, 10.1 and OpenGL gaming titles.

But, maybe most importantly, the new ATI card will be priced in the sub-$100 range, available now. Thus, you can't really expect this to be an outstanding card, but here are its quick stats:

  • 620 GigaFLOPS of compute power
  • Core clock speed of 775 MHz
  • 400 stream processors
  • GDDR5 memory

With a processor that is supposed to improve performance by more than 20 percent, the integration of ATI Stream technology should speed up video transcoding and improve/sharpen video playback.
