    AMD HD3D Technology
    HD3D: is an open standard developed by AMD to enable multiple solutions to allow 3D viewing for movies, photos and gaming content. With HD3D technology AMD introduces you to the 3rd dimension brought to you live and in color right from your living room. With Eye-popping stereoscopic 3D effects, flawless video, and true-to-life gaming experience you no longer watch your favorite actors – you join them and you no longer play your favorite games – you get into them. All at a cost you can afford.

    EyeSpeed Visual Acceleration Technology
    AMD EyeSpeed Visual Acceleration Technology accelerates enabled applications beyond their traditional processing by taking advantage of both CPU and GPU computing capabilities and work together to help improve performance and image quality.
    AMD EyeSpeed Visual Acceleration Technology takes advantages of AMD’s Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) Technology which is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that creates a “co-processing” environment in which the computer processing potential in your AMD RadeonTM GPU works together with the system’s CPUs to dramatically accelerate enabled applications.

    Eyefinity Technology
    AMD Eyefinity multiple-display technology enables a single GPU to support up to six independent display outputs simultaneously to give its users a "surround-sight" sensation. For gamers this gives them the feeling that they are immersed in their game world where for the professional user it optimizes the productivity of the professional user.

    Switchable Graphics Technology
    This technology switches between power-saving integrated graphics when on the road and high-powered discrete graphics when plugged in, for maximum performance and extreme power savings for long battery life.

    CrossFireX
    CrossFireXTechnology allows multiple GPUs in one system to improve its graphics performance. Eurocom supports this technology for the HD 6970M card for the EUROCOM Panther 2.0 and the EUROCOM X8100 Leopard.

    DirectX® 11
    Featuring technologies like Compute Shaders, Direct2D, Multithreaded Rendering and Tessellation, DirectX® 11 can enable not just more visually stunning games, but significant performance improvements in some of your favorite websites and everyday applications.

    DirectX® 11 features include:
  • Tessellation: implemented on the GPU to calculate a smoother curved surface resulting in more graphically detailed images, including more lifelike characters in the gaming worlds that you explore.
  • Multi-Threading: Helps accelerate rendering by leveraging all the CPU cores for blazing fast gaming performance.
  • DirectCompute: helps improve PC performance by taking on some or all of a DirectX® 11-enabled application’s processing load, freeing up the computer’s main processor to take on additional tasks.
  • HDR Texture compression: delivers an intense level of visual detail with efficiency and incredible image quality without increasing graphics memory footprint.

    Eurocom Models Carrying HD6970M
    Eurocom will support the new HD6970M in the following EUROCOM models:
    EUROCOM Cougar (single VGA operation)
