AMD Announces Low-cost DirectX 11 Graphics Card

Quote:
Earlier today, AMD announced the ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card the latest addition to the ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series of graphics cards.



The ATI Radeon HD 5450 will cost less than $60 (USD) for a 512MB memory configuration and supporting DirectX 11 making it one sweet deal if youre looking for a DirectX 11 graphics card for your Windows 7 PC.

The Radeon HD 5450 offers entry level performance and ultra-low power consumption and also supports AMDs multi-monitor technology called ATI Eyefinity and their ATI Stream technology. There will be variations of this card depending on partner offers including passive cooling models or whisper-quiet, single slot fan-cooled models.

This graphics card is perfect for someone putting together a home theater PC (HTPC) with Windows 7 as it comes with features like HDMI 1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

And a review of it,

Radeon HD 5450 review

Quote:
We stated it several times in this review, the Radeon HD 5450 is obviously not intended for gaming. For everything else you can think about, it is working pretty well though. We like the fact that the 5450 can be completely passively cooled, we like that it can support three monitor simultaneously and we simple like what it does and offers for the money.


For just 50 USD you receive a really funky HTPC card with wide connectivity, Blu-ray decoding and acceleration. And then the 80 shader cores can really help you out with software like Mediaplayer Classis Home Theatre edition as you are not only accelerating DXVA 1080P content, you can enhance it as well. So in that respect is really is good value for money.

Hmmm.... Maybe AMD/ATI should devote some time into fixing the issues the 5000 series cards seems to be having.

Yeah, but i think thats done by software designers, and the heatsink was by hardware designers. People (im not saying you) always think that the company does something, as a whole, but it has parts, and maybe they've just hired a lot of people that make heatsinks. Im just saying...
