ATI Eyefinity gets tested

Eyefinity is cool but bezels are a problem

| Video Cards News | Posted: Feb 26, 2010 3:38 pm

When ATI first talked about the new HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 video card there were lots of gamers out there salivating at the thought of gaming with six monitors. If you are like me you probably also worried about the monitor bezels mucking things up.

The Eyefinity system has been tested and overall it sounds very sweet indeed. However, the bezels did cause an issue where some of the scene was behind the bezel. Bezels aside, the tech is described as "immersive."

 

The Eyefinity tech renders the entire image and then spans it across all the screens meaning some of the image is naturally going to be missed thanks to LCD bezels. This can be a big deal if that missing section of the scene is an enemy.
