A community member at HardForum has posted pictures of what appears to be the upcoming Radeon HD 5670, a sub-$100 card with DirectX 11 support that’s slated for a Q1 2010 launch.

The HD5670 with its low-profile, cheap manufacturing costs and low power consumption at peak and idle – makes it a very attractive proposition for light gaming machines, HTPCs and mid-range laptops.

Following are the card’s specifications, as per the user on HardForum.

  • 775MHz core
  • 1000MHz VRAM

  • 128-bit memory bus
  • 64GBps bandwidth
  • 20 texture units
  • 400 shaders
  • 16 ROPs

If these specs are indeed true, they’re good enough to put the card nearly 20-23% ahead of the Radeon HD 4670 which proceeded it. Expect to see the card in Q1, 2010 for less than $100.
