AMD has announced that the ATI HD 5970 is now official. The video card is being hailed as the fastest video card in the world. It is DirectX 11 compliant and supports ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology. The video card can drive up to three displays at once with a maximum resolution of 7680 x 1600.

EA claims that the card delivers nearly five teraflops of processing power. The dual GPUs are built on a 40nm process and have 3,200 stream processors. When the power of both GPUs isn't needed, the card powers down unused resources allowing it to use as little as 42W of power in idle mode.

The card uses GDDR5 memory and has 160 texture units. The core clock for the card is 725MHz and the memory clock is 1GHz. Maximum power consumption at full load is 294W. We should be getting cards from a number of manufacturers today as well.
