ATI Radeon HD 5570 Launch Day
ATI’s Radeon HD 5570 is a slower version of the Radeon HD 5670.
The Radeon HD 5570 is a low-profile card with an idle power consumption of 9.7W and targets NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 and GT 240. With a low power consumption this card could be nice for HTPC (Home Theater PC) but AMD’s reference board is rather loud so the Radeon HD 5450 with its passive cooling is a better choice for HTPC users.
