Will these be the first DirectX 11 GPUs?

German hardware website hardware-infos.com has details on what it believes will be the first DirectX 11 from both NVIDIA and AMD/ATI.

German hardware website hardware-infos.com has details on what it believes will be the first DirectX 11 from both NVIDIA and AMD/ATI.

Note: It's important for me to point out that these numbers are unconfirmed. That said, they do look convincing.

AMD/ATI

Radeon HD 5870

  • GPU clock: 900MHz
  • Shader clock: 900MHz
  • Memory clock: 4,400MHz
  • Memory: 1GB GDDR5
  • Manufacturing process: 40nm
  • Peak GFLOPS: 2,160

Radeon HD 5870 X2

  • GPU clock: 950MHz
  • Shader clock: 950MHz
  • Memory clock: 4,600MHz
  • Memory: 2GB GDDR5
  • Manufacturing process: 40nm
  • Peak GFLOPS: 4,560

These numbers would make these parts almost twice as powerful as the current HD 4870 and HD 4870 X2 graphics cards.

NVIDIA

GeForce GTX 3xx (G300)

  • GPU clock: 700MHz
  • Shader clock: 1,600MHz
  • Memory clock: 2,200MHz
  • Memory: 1GB GDDR5
  • Manufacturing process: 40nm
  • Peak GFLOPS: 2,457

These numbers would make this part more than twice as powerful as the GeForce GTX 285.
