With twice the computing power of the highly acclaimed SAPPHIRE HD 5870 Series, this new HD 5970 model shares all the exciting features of the HD 5000 family – including support for the DirectCompute 11 instruction set of Microsoft DirectX 11, hardware tessellation and multi threaded communication with the system CPU. It also enables the acceleration of applications supported by AMD Stream, and the ability to display across three monitors simultaneously with AMD Eyefinity**. All of this comes with a modest active power consumption and AMD Powerplay Dynamic Power Management to achieve super-low power consumption in 2D and idle modes.
** AMD Eyefinity is a multi-monitor mode that allows a single graphics card to display images over an array of several monitors. The card supports up to three monitors, with an overall resolution of up to 7680 x 1600. This opens up exciting possibilities not just for multi-screen gaming, but also for information systems, multimedia systems and promotional displays
