ATI Radeon HD 5570 Graphics Brings a Big Visual Experience to Small Form Factor PCs

AMD today introduced the ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics card, perfect for end-users seeking an energy efficient, low-profile DirectX 11 card for small form factor PCs. The ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics card joins the award-winning line of AMD graphics that fully support DirectX 11, as well as ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and ATI Stream capabilities. This latest offering completes a full DirectX 11 refresh of AMD discrete graphics products, bringing customers a choice of cutting-edge graphics cards to match every budget and form factor.

"AMD recognizes that small form factor PCs are becoming more popular and low profile graphics upgrade options have been limited to date," said Matt Skynner, vice president and general manager, AMD Graphics Division. "Customers purchasing small form factor PCs are looking for improved performance while gaming, watching HD video or working with the latest productivity applications. The ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics card delivers all of this at a price that won't break the bank."

In addition to ATI Eyefinity and DirectX 11 support, the ATI Radeon HD 5570 also delivers full 1080p HD playback and supports ATI Stream technology, helping to boost performance for video playback and productivity applications, all while enabling a full Microsoft Windows 7 experience.

A sleek, energy efficient PC based on ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics, combined with new AMD Phenom II X4 905e processors at 65W and AMD 7-series chipsets, can power immersive gaming and vivid digital entertainment. These platforms are an excellent choice for system builders and home theater enthusiasts seeking Eye-Definition entertainment.
  • Advanced performance, affordable price: The ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics card provides great game play in DirectX 11 titles such as Codemaster's Colin McRae: DiRT 2, EA Phenomic's BattleForge, GSC Game World's S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as well as DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL titles. The ATI Radeon HD 5570 delivers up to a 60 percent performance improvement over the closest competing product in its class.
  • Expanding the Desktop: The latest in ATI Eyefinity technology enables up to three displays to be used with a single ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics card, delivering a highly immersive gaming experience, and helping to boost productivity in home and office applications.
  • Accelerate with ATI Stream technology: ATI Stream technology helps to speed up video transcoding and to improve video playback performance with applications such as Adobe Flash. ATI Stream technology also delivers video enhancements that help enable better visual quality and sharper, more vibrant images.
  • Immersive HD multimedia experience: The ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics card delivers the same rich HD multimedia capabilities as the enthusiast-class ATI Radeon HD 5870, with features such as HDMI 1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio for a premium media PC experience.

I know how you feel. As soon as Nvidia comes out with their new line-up, hopefully ATI cards will go down in prices :toast:

from the reviews i've seen on guru3d and tweaktown...it looks to be as fast as the hd3870, a little faster than the 4670....

seems like we have an awesome card for low profile cases and low power users :) no power plug and near the top for low profile performance!

Now I just hope they plug the gap between the 5770 and 5850. 5790 or 5830 maybe?:rockout:

how would this compare to saya 3850?
Marginally higher performance in recent games, 1/3rd of the 3850's power consumption, top notch audio outputs (HD3850 does HDMI stereo or pre-backed dolby digital / DTS, HD5570 has discrete 7.1 LPCM channels, plus Dolby HD and DTS HD passthrough).

And passive HD5570 are.. well, they don't disturb anyone with their fan. I'd say that's good.

I hate the cable that comes with the vga connector, makes me think of the old days, when everything you connected to your board was with the help of that cable!

Most of the PR releases list "2 or more" Crossfire support. Seems like a safe bet, because even when AMD says it can't (4770), it did, and did very well! :laugh:

Considering the marginal price difference, I'd hit up 3 or 4 of the 5670. Unless you have the need for low-profile cards.

The silly idea includes a low profile case, so I need LP cards. Hmm.

I like this card very, very much, actually. For such a small card, it looks like it packs quite a nice punch.

i just *glanced* at a review and it looked like the 5570 was beating a 4670 by a decent margin, the 4670 is pretty close to 3870 performance afik.

very. impressive.
