Introduction



Here you are, the AMD Radeon HD 6670. The new mainstream chip from AMD called "Turks" is looking to be a trusty "Jack of all trades" at a valuable market price-point. Microsoft's DirectX 11 API has once again elevated the standards of PC game graphics, but is still a new development, as DirectX 9 based self-proclaimed "Blockbuster" titles such as Crysis 2 are being released even today. In this backdrop, all of a sudden it makes sense to buy graphics cards that are under US $100, and have been moving along with market dynamics and the GPU's natural compute power growth rate.



Perhaps targeting that segment while maintaining some feature-set cushion with "100% DirectX 11 compliance," AMD is releasing its new Radeon HD 6670 graphics card. The HD 6670 is geared to be a little bit of everything, a rockstar when it comes to HD media acceleration and productive multi-display setups, but something that can smoothly run DirectX 9/10 titles at close to 1080p, and DirectX 11 at 720p. Based on the 40 nm Turks silicon, the HD 6670 features 480 stream processors, and a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 1 GB of memory typically. It supports 3-display Eyefinity output, and is backed by HydraVision display head manipulation software. Let's put HD 6670 through its paces.
