Why choose AMD Radeon™ Graphics?

What is AMD Eyefinity Technology?

AMD Eyefinity technology is a solution developed by AMD that allows consumers to run up to six simultaneous displays off of a single graphics card. This is a unique feature of AMD graphics products that cannot be found on any other consumer graphics solution at this time.

More importantly for consumers, AMD Eyefinity technology is not a feature we reserve for our most expensive products. Indeed, AMD Eyefinity technology is available on more than 45 consumer and professional-grade products. These products cover a very large spectrum of prices, giving you the flexibility to find the solution that you need.

Supporting multiple independent display outputs simultaneously, AMD Eyefinity technology delivers innovative graphics display capabilities enabling massive desktop workspaces and ultra-immersive visual environments for the ultimate panoramic computing experience.

Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture

Available on select, high-performance AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series graphics products, the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture is a radically new approach to the design of a consumer GPU.

Most importantly, it is the world's first 28nm GPU architecture, which enables AMD to fit up to 4.3 billion transistors-the most basic building blocks of a GPU-into approximately the same space once needed to fit 2.6 billion. Increasing transistor density by greater than 60% is more than just a feat of engineering-it's responsible for the world's most powerful and advanced GPU.

Designed to push not only the boundaries of DirectX® 11 gaming, the GCN Architecture is also AMD's first design specifically engineered for general computing. Equipped with up to 32 compute units (2048 stream processors), each containing a scalar coprocessor, AMD's 28nm GPUs are more than capable of handling workloads-and programming languages-traditionally exclusive to the processor. Coupled with the dramatic rise of GPU-aware programming languages like C++ AMP and OpenCL™, the GCN Architecture is truly the right architecture for the right time.

Microsoft DirectX® 11



DirectX® 11 is the very latest in high-speed, high-fidelity gaming and computing. Featuring technologies like Compute Shaders, Direct2D, Multithreaded Rendering and Tessellation, DirectX® 11 can enable not just more visually stunning games, but significant performance improvements in some of your favorite websites and everyday applications.

Compute Shaders

Compute Shaders are programs executed on the graphics processor. With DirectX® 11’s DirectCompute feature, application developers can harness the massive parallel processing power of the AMD Radeon HD™ GPU to provide stutter-free playback of Internet and Blu-ray videos, improve video quality or upscale DVDs. In games, Compute Shaders can dramatically improve visual detail:


  • Optimized post-processing effects: apply advanced lighting techniques to enhance the mood of any scene.
  • High-quality shadow filtering: see shadows fade at their edges just as you would in real life.
  • Depth of field: enables more realistic focal points by blurring objects that aren’t in focus—imagine looking down the sight of a rifle.
  • Ambient occlusion: generates ultra-realistic lighting and shadow combinations.



Direct2D

The GPU isn’t just for games. Harnessing DirectX® 11’s Direct2D features, the latest AMD Radeon HD™ graphics cards can supercharge Microsoft® Internet Explorer 9 or Mozilla Firefox® 4.0 for faster browsing and more readable text.

Effectively utilizing the available processing cores on advanced CPUs like the AMD Phenom II™ X6 has been a challenge in prior versions of DirectX®, but DirectX® 11’s Multithreaded Rendering architecture has made it easier than ever for application developers. From more detailed games to faster applications, multithreaded rendering helps make the most of modern hardware.



Tessellation

Tessellation is a technique that allows games to dynamically generate new and impressive detail in characters and scenery without compromising your system’s performance.


  • Dynamic water surfaces: real water doesn’t look the same every time—it shouldn’t in your games, either.
  • Dynamic clothing: more realistic fabrics better interact with wind and movement for a more immersive experience.
  • Detailed environments: tessellated landscapes dial up the detail for a more realistic experience.

Leading the way

AMD’s support for DirectX® 11 with world-class hardware like the AMD Radeon HD™ 6000 Series is just the beginning of its commitment to gamers. Since introducing the world’s first fully DirectX 11-capable graphics card in 2009, AMD has established partnerships with more than 20 developers and publishers to bring the benefits of DirectX® 11 to gamers all over the globe. With 84% of the world’s gamers playing their DirectX® 11 titles on a Radeon HD™ graphics card, AMD remains dedicated to one of its core philosophies that Gamers Come First.
