AMD to Release DirectX 11 Radeons Next Month


AMD's upcoming DirectX 11 Radeon series of graphics cards are expected to appear in October, according to uncomfirmed sources.

Digitimes.com reports that two DirectX 11 Radeon graphics cards (Radeon HD 5850 and Radeon HD 5870) will be released in October.

Although there are not any technical details available yet, the new cards will boast a power-efficient 40nm manufacturing technology (TSMC) and support for the next-generation DirectX 11 API.
