AMD is back. This is not just an high end but a gigantic end graphics card. The features are really jaw dropping. A complete gaming rig should have this GPU running. The hardware configuration is
- 512-bit bus
- Core Clock 725 MHz
- Memory Clock 1000 Mhz
- Memory 1 GB DDR5 (OMG!!!!)
- 6-8 Pin Connection configuration
The notable feature is, it is not very much big and bulky like nVidia 8800 which accommodates a full cabinet. This ATI Radeon 5970 is very slim as it would look like a lower end graphics card.Heating is a problem, as it could not keep itself very cool with it's single fan cooling system. This fan is not sufficient enough to suppress the heating effect, as it is a closed design card. The performance is better than other dual GPU nVidia cards.
Now harden you heart. The cost of this worthy card is Rs.42,000. The price substantiates it's DirectX 11 compatibility ,though they are no DirectX 11 compatible games available now.
