ATI Eyefinity supports display across six displays

AMD on Wednesday formally released ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition graphics card, offering 2GB of GDDR5 memory and delivering rendering in excess of 1 billion pixels per second in current generation gaming titles--or up to 12 times more resolution than 1080p HD. The company claims that with up to 2GB of GDDR5 memory users can experience high frame rates and image quality settings in the latest DirectX 11 games in 3- and 6-display gaming setups (using one of five included adapters: 2 mini-DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort adapters, 2 passive mini-DisplayPort-to-DVI dongles, and 1 passive mini-DisplayPort-to-HDMI dongle).

The new card also offers support for 3x2 display configuration with new configurations supported in upcoming ATI Catalyst software updates and the ability to use ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU technology in conjunction with ATI Eyefinity multi-display capabilities as released in ATI Catalyst graphics drivers version 10.2 for increased gaming performance when driving high-resolution ATI Eyefinity display groups. ATI also said that Eyefinity technology enhancements were made available in ATI Catalyst graphics update version 10.3, including bezel compensation, which helps simulate a more integrated display surface by adjusting for display bezels.
