AMD announces new ATI Radeon HD 3870 for PC and Mac

ati_radeon_hd_3870 AMD has announced a new video card for PCs and Macs called the ATI Radeon HD 3870, the first card in its 3000-series for Macs as well as the first to support both platforms. Not two different cards, one card for both.

Mac users will need a Mac Pro to be able to use it (sorry, won’t fit into a Mini or iMac).

Specs of the card will include:

  • 320 stream (pixel and vertex) processors
  • Improved power usage
  • Support for new shader effects (DirectX 10.1 for Windows, OpenGL 2.0 for Macs)
  • Dual-link DVI ports able to handle 30-inch displays
  • S-Video in
  • 512MB

Look for it to ship later this month for $219.
