AMD is announcing the new ATI Radeon HD 3870 for Mac & PC Edition, with promises of exception HD quality. Optimized exclusively for Apple Mac Pro systems, the ATI Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC edition can help drive productivity with built-in 256-bit 512MB GDDR4 frame buffer memory and 320 stream processors to deliver maximum performance for graphics-intensive applications such as 3D modeling, animation and games.

Users also can expand visual workspace using twin dual-link DVI ports to connect two 30” Apple Cinema HD displays.

“AMD is introducing the ATI Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC Edition to enhance the Mac experience to maximum levels of 3D gaming and HD performance,” said Matt Skynner, vice president of marketing, Graphics Products Group, AMD. “Mac users demand the best when it comes to HD graphics performance, and the ATI Radeon 3870 Mac & PC Edition is designed to meet and exceed that need by delivering The Ultimate Visual Experience™ to our customers’ displays.”

ATI Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC Edition allows HD gaming by delivering an immersive gaming environment while enhancing overall image quality. The Unified Shader Architecture provides realistic game play experience. With PCI Express 2.0 support, users are now ready for games that demand fast throughput.

The ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series graphics processors have new leveles of efficiency, with up to twice the processing performance-per-watt compared to previous generations of high-end AMD graphics processors. AMD also has added its ATI PowerPlay technology to the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series to provide increased control over the graphics processor in multiple power states.

With PowerPlay technology, users benefit from dynamic adjustment of clocks and voltages depending on their usage scenario, which allows for a cool and quiet user experience.

With a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$219, the ATI Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC Edition is scheduled to be available late June at Mac retailers worldwide.
