Maximized Your Productivity With Dual Display Technology

Multidisplay technology for gaming, productivity, and entertainment.

We are taking you beyond the boundaries of traditional PC displays. XFX Dual Display technology expands the traditional limits of desktop computing by multiplying your screen area. With multiple monitors, games become more immersive, workstations become more useful and you become more productive (an average of 42% more productive according to one study). DVI + VGA, DVI + HDMI, and HDMI + VGA configurations supported. 

2 GB GDDR Video Memory

Enhance your gaming experience and drastically improve your gaming graphics.

Video Memory improves you gaming experience by storing more 3D vector data, textures, overlays, GPU programs which allows for faster load times, sharper graphics and higher resolutions.

True Visual Stereoscopic HD3D Ready

The 3rd dimension is here thanks to AMD

AMD HD3D Technology is supported by an advanced and open ecosystem that, in conjunction with specific AMD hardware and software technologies, enables 3D display capabilities for many PC applications and experiences.

AMD App Acceleration Technology

Check out DirectX® 11 games, plus Windows and Android™ apps for your AMD-based PC in AMD's app showcase.

AMD App Acceleration is your application's new best friend. And soon to be yours. Enjoy beautifully rich and clear video playback when streaming from the web. Take in your favorite movies in stunning, stutter-free HD quality. Run multiple applications smoothly at maximum speed and enjoy lightning fast game play and realistic physics effects.

Tesselation Technology

The details of tesselations can make the difference between a flat dull surface and a realistic bumpy surface.

XFX graphics cards offer the highest tesselation capabilities while still maintaining the higest performance. We don't sacrifice one for the other so you can expect to get the riches detail in your games without slowing down your gaming experience. See bumpy roads, textured fabrics and realistic rippling waters with high tesselated graphics from XFX.

Improved Multi Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAA Technology

Smooth lines is the difference between bitty low quality graphics to a smooth realistic graphics.

MSAA smoothes out the jagged edges of a curved object. A black curved line on a white background displayed on a computer screen will have some jaggedness along its edges due to the inherent limitations of using discrete pixels to display the image. Anti-aliasing smoothes out this jaggedness by filling in the white spaces between the jagged edges with varying shades of grey which gives you the smooth soft shadows, crisp sharp lines of buildings, and crisp tiny details in clothing that make your experience truely realistic.

Bullet Physics Engine Technology

Get the most out of your gaming experience with real 3D Physics.

Take advantage of the 3D Physics capabilities of some of today's newest titles which include completely destructable objects, walls and buildings collapsing from gun fire, real particle effects such as fire that react to the environment and realistic details such as moving hair, water and much more.

Compatible with the newest Direct X Technology

Meets the standards of the newest games with the latest Direct X driver compatibility.

With every new generation of Direct X, major improvements are made which greatly advance the graphics capabilities of games. That's why it is essential to ensure that you are using a graphics card with the newest Direct X driver compatibility so that you'll get the most out of your gaming experience. See the difference for yourself.

Partially Resident Textures PRT Technology

Radically change the detail of your games from flat to realistic.

Even in the latest titles, gamers may have noticed that games often reuse or repeat textures, particularly on the ground or in background scenery such as mountains or trees. This is because increasing the physical size or number of textures in a game can have a negative impact on the performance of a GPU. PRT is a radical technology that hopes to break this cycle.
