5670 shader version

Hello All,

i have a xfx 5670 1GB......i read that this card supports shader version 5.0. I went to the site systemrequirement lab to check a game if it is playable on my PC and it showed that my card has shader version 4.0. Am i missing something that i need to add and i get the shader version 5 on my card?....

P.S. i have latest DirectX (DX11) on my PC. Also, i have the latest drivers for the card as well.

AMD claims that it's Shader Model 5.0.

Are you concerned that the game isn't playable, or just worried that the tool from systemrequirementslab is showing Model 4?

Well then i wouldnt worry about it for the moment, there is probably an update coming out for it..... like when pc's used to say windows 7 ready and then come installed with vista. likewise you will probably be able to upgrade it soon

Also test sites sometimes don't even give the proper OS cause they were set up some time ago with out a database update
