Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
The AMD HD5870 - the fastest single-GPU card available? - The AMD HD5870 - the fastest single-GPU card available?

By now we are used to see new video cards being released from AMD and NVIDIA in the spring and fall. This year is not different except that it coincides with the release of Windows 7 together with DirectX for Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Since AMD already has had experience with some of the new features of DX 11 through the support of DX10.1, which is a sub-set to DX11, it probably is no surprise that it looks like AMD will be the first vendor to offer cards with DirectX 11 support. During a hectic day in September we visited AMD in London and got all the info about the new HD5800-series of GPU's. We went home pretty impressed about what we saw but as we all know you never can trust marketing or the PR-guys so it was of course lucky that AMD also let us bring home a card so we could put it through its paces in our Swedish office in Stockholm.
