ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity6


Everyone who has kept up with recent ATI graphics cards know about the Eyefinity technology that allows three monitors to be connected as one side-by-side. Now lets welcome the new Eyefinity6 where one card supports up to 6 monitors in various setups.

Video benchmarking by Guru3D of Resident Evil 5 with two HD 5870 Eyefinity6 in crossfire:

The outer frame of monitors makes the screens look split during games, and the video below (Tom’s Hardware) shows demonstrations of racing games and a split screen usage.
