Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 — Gaming On Six Panels

MojoKid writes “AMD’s 6-output Radeon has been seen in action at a number of events, but today the ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition is being officially launched. HotHardware paired the card up with six 22″ Dell LCD panels in a 3×2 configuration — with a max resolution of 5760×2160 — and ran it through a number of popular titles including Dirt 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Crysis. For specialized, high-end graphics cards like this, the market potential may be relatively small. If, however, the idea of multi-monitor gaming is appealing to you and you’ve got the means to score one of these cards (along with multiple displays), you won’t be disappointed.”
Reader Vigile adds a different analysis of the card’s six-monitor gaming: “PC Perspective found FPS games were basically unplayable because of the bezel through the middle of their vision while RTS and racing games like StarCraft 2 and DiRT 2 were spectacular.”
