ATI’s next flagship GPU and the first DirectX 11 capable chip is about to arrive this October.
RV870 is the next flagship GPU of ATI which incorporates DirectX 11 capabilities. ATI hopes to release this chip by the time Microsoft unveil Windows 7 which has support for DirectX 11 API.
Codenamed Cypress, this GPU is expected to be named HD5870 if we follow ATI’s way in naming its products. Cypress will be followed immediately by Juniper which has a little bit slower performance.
Nvidia is expected to follow with its G300 series of cards soon which will give ATI a challenging competion that will force them to lower their prices for the new cards.
So what’s our advice for your next graphics card? Save! haha. Okay we advice that you save your money for your next video card update until this new series of DirectX 11 cards arrived.
Sa pasko kapatid inaasahan naming magiging maganda ang mga bagong video cards na lalabas sa market. Kasabay din nito ang mga bagong games na susubok sa kakayahan ng DirectX 11.
