Following up the recent launch of its Radeon HD 5450, ATI today announced the Radeon HD 5570. This new card supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3.2, and is designed with small-form-factor desktop PCs in mind.

ATI pushes the Radeon HD 5570 as an energy-efficient, high-performance card. The company clams that the new card can provide "up to a 60 percent performance improvement over the closest competing product in its class" (presumably, other cards geared toward compact desktop PCs) and that it uses 45 watts at when under a full processing load.

The Radeon HD 5570 may be a good choice if you're interested in building a home theater PC with full 1080p HD video playback and support for HDMI 1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Like other new ATI cards, the Radeon HD 5570 supports ATI's Eyefinity technology, and lets you drive three monitors off one card. The Radeon HD 5570 can also handle software that makes use of OpenCL, though you'll have to wait until OpenCL drivers ship later this year.

Pricing and availability has yet to be announced, but in the meantime you can learn more by visiting the Radeon HD 5570 product page.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
