AMD on Wednesday unveiled the ATI Radeon HD 5800 series, graphics cards that boast up to 2.72 teraflops of computer power.

The series will initially debut with two cards: the ATI Radeon HD 5870 and the ATI Radeon HD 5850, both of which include 1 G-byte of graphics double data rate version 5 (GDDR5) memory and support for OpenCL.

This type of computing power has prompted AMD to refer to the 5800 series as the "most powerful processor ever created," though AMD acknowledges that teraflops are "not necessarily an indicator of leading performance in every application."

The ATI Radeon HD 5800 is the first to support Microsoft DirectX 11, the new gaming and compute standard that will ship with Windows 7. It will also support DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1, and OpenGL titles in single card configurations or multi-card configurations using ATI CrossFireX technology.

"When measured in terms of game performance experienced in some of today's most popular games, the ATI Radeon HD 5800 series is up to twice as fast as the closest competing product in its class," AMD said in a statement.

The 5800 series allows for multi-monitor gaming at up to 12 x full HD resolution. The HD 5870 and HD 5850 will allow up to three displays, and the forthcoming ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6 graphics card will allow for six.
