Radeon HD5770 Features

The feature set of the ATI HD5700 series video cards is nearly identical to the recently released HD5800 series. The important differences are all related to the fact that the HD5700 series chip is half the size of the HD5800, with half the processing power. For those who perused the mountain of details that accompanied the 5800 series launch, this graphic should look half familiar.

AMD is slowly working towards a future vision of graphics computing, as is their main competitor, Intel. They both believe that integrating graphics processing with the CPU provides benefits that can only be achieved by taking the hard road. For now, the only thing we can see is their belief; the roadmap is both sketchy and proprietary.
