When the NDA was lifted on the Eyefinity6 version of the HD 5870 we had a good look of it here. The problem we ran into, though, was the lack of any active adapter. What this meant was we weren't able to test the model as we normally would. Instead we had a look at it at 5760 x 1200 to see just how it performed.

 

As we received a retail version of the model from Sapphire, we also received an active adapter which would give us a chance to benchmark the card as we normally would. So today that's exactly what we've done.

 

Before we get stuck into the performance of the model, though, let's see what bundle Sapphire have put together while also taking a closer look at the card and its specifications. Once we've done that we'll fire up the testbed and see how the model performs, including 2560 x 1600 testing which will hopefully make use of that extra memory that's available.
