We forgot to post this, but during CES the crew from AMD celebrated the shipment of its two millionth DirectX 11 graphics chip. ATI has had successful launches of the ATI Radeon HD 5970, ATI Radeon HD 5800 series, ATI Radeon HD 5700 series and just recently the ATI Radeon HD 5600 series of DirectX 11 video cards. Pretty amazing that by now well over two million video cards are in the hands of gamers worldwide! Pictured below is the cake that they had during an AMD party at CES!
“AMD recently celebrated the shipment of its two millionth DirectX 11 graphics chip. AMD has already enabled DirectX 11 support for the majority of the PC market and today’s introduction of the ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card is yet another clear indication of AMD’s commitment to address the strong market demand for DirectX 11-capable graphics cards,” said Matt Skynner, vice president and general manager, AMD Graphics Group. “Combined with the successful launches of the ATI Radeon HD 5970, ATI Radeon HD 5800 series and ATI Radeon HD 5700 series, AMD has defined the DirectX 11 gaming experience like no other, bringing graphics innovations like ATI Eyefinity technology and ATI Stream technology to millions of consumers worldwide.”
