AMD powers up to 24 monitors with Eyefinity

Real multi monitor gaming is here

So what is better than dual monitor gaming? How about putting six or more of them in a nice mount and gaming from there? Sounds nice huh? Well this is what AMD's Eyefinity is aiming to give you.


This technology approaches the resolution of the human eye and according to AMD is 12 times the resolution of 1080p. To do this AMD is enabling their latest DX11 cards to push the signal out to multiple monitors and to allow them to become part of the whole (just like a monitor wall).


AMD and Samsung are working on this together and in fact Samsung has just announced a six monitor setup.


The advantages of this have yet to be seen as any multiple monitor rig (while extremely cool) is held back by the width of the bezel around the edge of the individual displays.


Still the thought of having up to 24 monitors (in either landscape or portrait) is very impressive and has my imagination working as I am sure yours is.
