The card is a part of the Evergreen family, codenamed Juniper and based on the same 40nm technology found in the HD 5800 series lineup. The card is slightly less powerful with 1120 Stream Processors, a core frequency of 825 MHz and 1GB of GDDR5 memory running at 4600 MHz with a 128-bit memory interface. The card supports both DirectX 11 and CrossFireX.
While the length has been shortened considerably from the 11″ monster of the HD 5870, it still has a dual slot cooler and on the back retains the dual DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. Keeping the DisplayPort option makes this an excellent choice for regular workstation or budget users wanting utilize the triple monitor capabilities, but not play or only do only modest gaming.
The card was also captured posted for sale at a European retailer for 149.99 euro’s, with a VAT of 19%, meaning that we can almost guarantee that the expected North American retail price with be under the $200 price point.
