SAPPHIRE Brings Back HD 5850 and HD 5830 with Xtreme Editions

Sapphire Radeon HD 5830

Hailed as the most exciting development in graphics for several generations, the original SAPPHIRE HD 5800 series not only included the fastest single GPU available, but was also the first family of video cards in the world to support the advanced graphical features of Microsoft DirectX 11 and multi-monitor displays in Eyefinity mode. Now it’s back – with the exciting new SAPPHIRE HD 5800 series Xtreme Editions!

Two models will be available from April 2011 – the SAPPHIRE HD 5850 Xtreme and the SAPPHIRE HD 5830 Xtreme. Both will represent spectacular value for money – and support all the latest games and applications.

With a 150GB/s memory interface to 1GB of the latest GDDR5 memory, and a GPU architecture with a total of 1440 stream processors and 72 texture units, the new SAPPHIRE HD 5850 Xtreme speeds through older DirectX10.1, DirectX 10 and DirectX 9.0 games and applications – as well as delivering stunning levels of performance, detail, transparency and lighting effects in the latest DX11 games and applications.

Not far behind is the SAPPHIRE HD 5830 Xtreme Edition with its 1120 stream processors and 56 texture units. With its core clocks of 800MHz and 1GB of DDR5 memory with speeds of 1000MHz (4GHz effective), it represents a breakthrough in value for money for the gamer.

Both cards feature new SAPPHIRE original cooler designs, and optimised voltage regulation, which together with clock and memory speeds can be adjusted with the SAPPHIRE TriXX overclocking tool (free for users to download) to enhance performance. Both cards offer support for all the advanced graphical features of Microsoft DirectX 11 and deliver spectacular video clarity, speed and visual effects.

The SAPPHIRE HD 5800 series has an on board hardware UVD (Unified Video decoder) considerably reducing CPU load and delivering smooth decoding of Blu-ray™ and HD content for both VC-1 and H.264 codecs, as well as Mpeg files. In the SAPPHIRE HD 5800 series the UVD can simultaneously decode two 1080p HD video streams and is able to display HD video in high quality with Windows Aero mode enabled. HDMI capability is compliant with HDMI 1.3a and supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

In addition to spectacular image clarity, speed and visual effects, the SAPPHIRE HD 5800 Xtreme series supports the multi-monitor mode known as Eyefinity. This allows a single GPU to display a choice of images over an array of several monitors and to treat them as a single layer surface – or as one large display area.

The SAPPHIRE HD 5800 series is supported by AMD’s DirectX 11 WHQL certified graphics driver which delivers support for all of the key DirectX 11 level features required for new gaming experiences and acceleration of next generation high performance applications.

The SAPPHIRE HD 5850 and HD 5830 Xtreme Editions are shipping from April 2011.

MSI Also Announces FX420, FX620DX Performance Notebooks

MSI FX420 Notebook

If you’re looking for superior performance and the ultimate multimedia experience—and who isn’t?—look no further. The new MSI FX420 and FX620DX not only pack Intel second generation Core CPUs, both of these mean machines sport high-end discrete graphics cards to meet the needs of extreme gamers. The FX620DX, in particular, comes with the nVidia GeForce GT540M discrete graphics card and Intel Core i7 quad core processor for adrenaline-pumping speeds.

Screaming system performance

Intel second generation Core i processors: MSI’s FX620DX and FX420 feature the Intel powerful Core i7-2630QM quad core processor (2.00GHz) and Core i5-2410M™ dual core processor (2.30GHz), respectively. Both support Intel’s Turbo Boost 2.0 to analyze processor workload and automatically allocate processor resources to throttle up core clocks to enhance computing performance.

nVidia and AMD discrete graphics cards: The FX620DX and FX420 come equipped with the nVidia GeForce GT540M and AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics cards, respectively. Both have 1GB DDR3 of internal memory and support Direct11. Both support MSI GPU Boost which automatically kicks the system over to discrete graphics card mode when the CPU is processing high-load applications to give you superior graphics processing capabilities. When performing general word processing tasks or browsing the Internet, it cuts to the power-sipping integrated graphics chip mode, striking the ideal balance between performance and battery life.

Classically stylish, low power consumption

Perfect fusion of style and technology: The jet black lids of the FX620DX and FX420 laptops are sheathed in non-peeling raised texture seal coating to prevent scratching and smudging. The centers are graced with MSI’s glowing platinum logo and the palm rest areas with a soft raised checkered coating that not only pampers the hands, but adds a touch of class. In addition, the power button is encircled by chrome which does a beautiful job of setting off the cold, luminescent blue lights above the keyboard. The unassuming platinum trim around the speakers and body as well as the unmatched Chiclet keyboard and raised multipoint touchpad further underscore the tasteful class of these elegant machines.

Shortcuts: Located above the keyboards of the FX620DX and FX420 are six shortcut buttons. With just one click, you can eject a DVD, turn off the screen, or turn on the S-Bar, Turbo Battery+, or Cinema Pro, so when you’re going to be away from your computer for a few minutes, you can quickly shut off the display, so as to not waste battery power.

Latest USB3.0 ports: The FX620DX and FX420 come with USB3.0 which boasts transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps—10 times faster than USB2.0, so a 25Gb HD film transfers in just 70 seconds. It also provides 80% more power for vastly faster charging speeds for external hard drives, flash drives, and other handheld electronic devices.

ECO Engine: ECO Engine power-saving green technology lets you select from among five power management levels—Video Game, Film, Presentation, Word Processing, and Turbo Battery, to automatically adjust display brightness and processor performance settings to reduce power use and maximize battery use per charge.
