ATI RADEON HDAMD has introduced the ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 edition graphics card, capable of rendering in excess of 1 billion pixels per second, according to AMD.
Its Eyefinity technology allows a panoramic computing experience, using a single card across six displays.
The HD 5870 is equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 memory and allows gamers to have access to a seamless perspective (across six displays), enabling up to 12 times more resolution than 1080p HD.
Matt Skynner, vice president and general manager of AMD Graphics Division says, “The ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition graphics card opens the door to a new era in personal computing. PC users get the ultimate panoramic computing experience in one powerful card. By bridging the innovation in ATI Eyefinity technology with broad ecosystem support, AMD is revolutionising the PC visual experience.”
Skynner adds that before today, PC enthusiasts needed two or even three graphics cards to simultaneously drive six independent computer monitors at and beyond 1080p HD resolutions.
