AMD Intros $99 DirectX 11 Graphics Card
Advanced Micro Devices on Thursday introduced a sub-$100 ATI Radeon graphics card that supports DirectX 11, Microsoft's latest collection of Windows technology for handling multimedia tasks, especially games and video.
The ATI Radeon HD 5670 gives many owners of lower-priced mainstream desktops the option of boosting graphics performance without spending a lot of money. DirectX 11 ships with Windows 7, but can also be installed in Vista.
The release of the latest product follows by three months AMD's launch of the ATI Radeon HD 5700 series, which offered DirectX 11 support for mainstream PCs for between $100 and $200.
