The 6000M series, on the other hand offers Microsoft DirectX 11 support, AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology, AMD EyeSpeed video encoding, transcoding, and upscaling acceleration, HD3D technology for stereoscopic 3D display/glasses support, Blu-ray 3D, and stereoscopic 3D gaming, as well as AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics, and the UVD 2 accelerator for HD video recording.

The ASUS K52JT-XT1 would be the first laptop to sport one of these cards-the 1GB AMD / ATI HD 6370, while an upcoming Acer Aspire 17.3-inch model would be the first to have the Radeon 6550 1GB card. Also, the Radeon HD 6570 will see itself under the upcoming IdeaPad Y560 models’ hood.
