AMD packs 2.15 billion transistors into a tiny chip, offering outstanding performance, DirectX 11 support, and triple-monitor (or better) capability. Nvidia’s response is nowhere to be seen
Six Monitors, One Card
One of the more intriguing aspects of the Radeon HD 5870 is its use of multiple displays, something AMD dubs “Eyefinity.” The first shipping HD 5870 comes with four display connectors: two DVI, one DisplayPort, and one HDMI. Up to three monitors can be connected to any three of the four connectors. (Due to timing limitations, all four connectors can’t be used simultaneously.) Later this year, AMD will ship a card with six DisplayPort adapters, capable of connecting up to six DisplayPort-equipped monitors at the same time.
For cards supporting up to three displays, usage scenarios might include three wide screen displays in portrait mode, side by side. Cards capable of driving six simultaneous digital monitors could support a variety of display options: 3 x 2 landscape, 2 x 2, or oddball scenarios such as 3 x 1 with another 1 on top as an extended display (for flight sims, for example.)
One underlying technology making a six display configuration possible is DisplayPort. The display controller in the RV870 generates only two timing signals, suitable for DVI or VGA. DisplayPort can source external timing signals, and DisplayPort-equipped monitors can act as timing sources.
