Radeon HD5570 Features

The feature set of the ATI HD5570 video card is nearly identical to the entire HD5xxx series. The important differences are all related to the fact that the HD5570 chip is half the size of the HD5770, with half the transistors and half the processing power. Except for lower default clock frequencies, it's identical to the HD5670 that Benchmark Reviews looked at last month. For those who first saw the monster version of this graphic at the launch of the 58xx series, there's about ¼ of what was in the HD5870 left in the center of the diagram; 5 SIMD Engines with a total of 400 Stream Processors. The architecture diagram may have gotten smaller, but the feature list hasn't shrunk at all.
