The first time I laid eyes on this card I was visiting AMD's headquarters in Sunnyvale before the Radeon HD 5800 series launch event. I could take photos of the 6 displays it was driving, but not the card itself. So we'll start off with a...

As a fully paid up, card carrying member of the multi-monitor brigade, I should have been the one person on the team getting all gooey over the thought of six (six!) screens powered by one graphics card. I've been running a couple of screens from my...

Surely, the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition is a specialty product, aimed at the few folks out there willing to “go big” on displays. Its competitive position is made that much stronger by the fact that Nvidia’s flagship maxes out...

The area of power consumption isn't drastically affected by the additional 1GB of memory though we were only pushing a single panel in this test; expect it to creep up ever so slightly with more monitors connected. But man, don't expect to see...

Last week was a mad rush to get Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 480 and 470 tested in sufficient depth to draw some very real conclusions about how the new cards perform in today’s games, how they might fare in the future, and the power they’ll...

The Eyefinity 6 is an impressive piece of hardware. No doubt about that: on top of the already great feature set of the HD 5870 you now have the opportunity to use six displays at once. However, as impressive as it is, only a small subset of folks...

ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity edition is, for the vast majority of people, just a boy’s toy. Something you will look at and drool, but have no real use for. Of those who would an extended desktop, the vast majority again will be content with the...

Het is niet vaak dat iedereen in het Hardware.Info bij binnenkomst van een nieuwe product al z'n werk uit de handen laat vallen en met open mond komt kijken naar wat op tafel is gezet. Bij de Samsung MD230X6 monitoren set-up en de Radeon HD 5870...
