ATI's HD 5870 Eyefinity6-ready graphics card makes its debut

Six monitors of gaming goodness?

By Steve Dougherty from Mar 31, 2010 @ 1:16 CDT

Following ATI's promise of a video card that would be capable of running six monitors using its new Eyefinity6 technology, after months of waiting that card finally arrives today based on their highest single GPU model, the HD 5870.

Dubbed the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition, the main difference about this variant compared to the standard HD 5870 is the re-arrangement of the I/O area, giving six mini DisplayPort connectors and also double the memory on board at 2GB to assist in driving this significantly extended setup.

AMD/ATI are particularly proud of this technology, knowing their direct competitor NVIDIA have just released new high-end cards to market which still lack the ability to run more than two displays, giving ATI a significant edge in multi-monitor gaming and productivity tasks.

Of course, our VGA man Shane Baxtor managed to get hooked up with one of them for testing and you can see how it goes in a bunch of multi-monitor gaming tests compared to non-Eyefinity6 variants with lesser memory.
