AMD launched its Radeon HD 69000 series enthusiast GPUs that feature Microsoft DirectX 11-capable architecture, PowerTune power management technology, EMD Eyefinity multi-display technology and 3D entertainment support.

�AMD Radeon? HD 6900 series graphics feature AMD�s second-generation, DirectX? 11-capable architecture, new image quality improvements and up to 2GB of graphics frame buffer, making it a great choice for gamers and enthusiasts,? said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, GPU Division, AMD. �Delivering DirectX 11 performance with intelligent tessellation, image quality improvements with new anti-aliasing modes and AMD PowerTune technology, we believe AMD Radeon? HD 6900 series graphics cards will make excellent gifts this holiday season.?

The company explains that the 6900 series delivers a 10 percent improvement in performance/mm2. Also, with its PowerTune technology, the D 6900 series automatically adjusts GPU power draw by dynamically controlling clock speeds, allowing gamers advanced performance inside of the power envelope they specify. The series also features dual 8th generation tessellation units, delivering up to 2.9x tessellation performance compared to ATI Radeon? HD 5870 graphics.

Image quality is improved by the series with its Enhanced Quality Anti-Aliasing (EQAA), which uses a new sampling technique to help improve visual quality, Morphological Anti-Aliasing (MLAA), compatible with any DirectX 9,10 or11 application, and improved anisotropic filtering.
