CES 2010: AMD unveils DirectX 11-ready mobile graphics
Press release, January 8; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 8 January 2010]

AMD has introduced its lineup of next-generation DirectX 11-capable ATI Mobility Radeon Premium graphics chips for notebooks, including the highest-end ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870.

The entire family of DirectX 11-capable graphics consists of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5700, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5600 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 series GPUs. This top-to-bottom family of Direct 11-capable notebook graphics chips introduces new features including ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology.

ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology enables high resolution panoramic computing for notebooks, allowing mobile users to harness up to six monitors for improved gaming, productivity, and entertainment, AMD detailed.

The GPUs will also feature Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD 2) technology, for upscaling beyond 1080p and dual-1080p decoding of Blu-ray video and HD streams.

The GPUs' 40nm structure and AMD's Vari-Bright technology for optimizing notebook display brightness to deliver up to 50% power savings over the previous generation's software can both help save battery power for notebooks, AMD said.

The GPUs also support GDDR5 memory to deliver double the memory bandwidth over previous generation AMD discrete graphics.

Notebooks featuring the new graphics technology are currently being previewed at CES 2010.
