Eyefinity6 is finally here and with word now coming out that the HD 5870 is officially going to have 2GB of GDDR5 from some partners, we're not 100% sure how the Eyefinity6 model is going to go.
The chances are that you already know about the model and you know a fair bit about what it's capable of. Really, we saw the Eyefinity card on offer by ATI when the original HD 5870 launched last year, but the big question was, why didn't we see the card released then instead of months later?
It seemed to be driver related and an issue with the six monitors working together. While we'd seen a fair bit of footage on the cards running games on six monitors, it tended to be the same game. While we'll probably never know the full story, it's possible that maybe there were issues with other games.
We'll be taking a bit of a different approach to this review and making it a bit more of an article due to the fact that we haven't received an active Dual-Link DVI adapter which in turn has made it impossible to test at 2560 x 1600. Instead we're going to look at Eyefinity performance with three monitors against a couple of other ATI offerings.
Since the card we're looking at is a reference one from ATI, there's no bundle to look at so we'll get into the card itself and check out the specifications of the model.
