    At "experience events" on three continents this week, AMD and its industry partners introduced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology, a revolutionary feature in the upcoming next generation ATI Radeon family of DirectX 11 enabled graphics processors.
    This unique AMD innovation gives PCs the ability to seamlessly connect up to six ultra high definition displays in a variety of portrait and landscape configurations giving viewers a stunning new perspective on their PC experience. ATI Eyefinity is powered by one AMD graphics card for up to 12 times 1080p high-definition resolution, which approaches eye-definition optical clarity. ATI Eyefinity technology brings AMD closer to delivering true eye-definition experiences, where the display of a virtual environment is so detailed that it seems optically real to the human eye. Using ATI Eyefinity technology in a single PC, it is now possible to power displays with a combined theoretical resolution of 268 megapixels, roughly equivalent to the resolution of a 90 degree arc of what the human eye sees. For reference, today's average 19 inch LCD display typically has an image quality of only slightly more than 1 megapixel.

    • PCs with ATI Eyefinity technology expand game and virtual world environments to the largest ever experienced, allowing gamers to dominate the competition. For entertainment, education, and productivity applications, ATI Eyefinity practically obsoletes scrolling through vast desktop real estate that puts more information and stunning detail at users' fingertips.
    • AMD is working closely with leading display partner Samsung Electronics to introduce ultra-thin bezel monitors and compatible stands that can easily be tiled to create an even more immersive and virtually seamless ATI Eyefinity experience. The ultra-thin bezels will enable customers to create their own scalable display matrix. Samsung is the first to bring these displays to market.

    A More Engaging PC Experience: Eye-Definition Gaming
    Set to debut in retail and e-tail outlets before the Windows 7 operating system is launched, the next generation ATI Radeon family of graphics processors is set to bring computer enthusiasts and mainstream consumers the benefits of the most powerful processor ever created. To showcase the new experiences next generation ATI Radeon graphics will bring to PC users, AMD presented:
    • PCs armed with the new ATI Radeon processors, capable of rendering incredibly complex virtual environments and characters unlike anything seen before.
    • Scenes and digital actors that are almost indistinguishable from reality, rendered in real-time and shown as completely interactive.



    A More Intuitive PC Experience: Making Things Simple
    Further demonstrating the power of its approach to the market, AMD demonstrated how this new technology will work within AMD PC platforms to provide consumers a more intuitive experience. For example:
    • AMD spotlighted the conversion of a home video file for use on a personal media player in Windows 7. The technology preview showed the potential of notebooks and PCs powered by new ATI Radeon graphics processors, where users simply drag a file like an HD video produced by popular pocket cameras, and an easy, visibly accelerated conversion of the file takes place.
    • The speed and intuitiveness of this popular processing-intensive task is unmatched by all-Intel platform offerings costing much more.

    A More Empowering End-to-End PC Experience
    ATI Eyefinity technology and the next generation family of ATI Radeon graphics processors were introduced as a part of a series of vivid demonstrations showing the next act for the PC: a total experience transformation from the moment consumers walk into a store, to easier access to advanced video processing, to the quality of entertainment experience new PCs deliver in the home or on the go.

    Ha ha ha I like what the guy says in the video:

    "Enjoy productivity on some screens, while enjoying entertainment on others."

    I wonder how many employers would buy that?? The two don't usually go together. :roll:

    Intel isn't even competing in this market, at all. How does any change in this market segment affect Intel to the point of it "being in trouble".

    You'll also notice how the cards are not part of a CrossFire array as such. So it tells you that 4 x Hemlock ("HD 5870 X2") for Eyefinity is possible, as is filling every slot on a ASUS Revolution motherboard with a Hemlock (with some sort of a single-slot cooler, like water-blocks, etc.). Each GPU is handling its displays to contribute to the mosaic.

    how what about in the notebook market, intel graphics are a disgrace.
    amd dragon is a platform that includes graphics, intel platform is garbage.

    Note the coolers on the cards, different from what we've been seeing!

    They look purty :p

    I might have to get myself a mobo with red highlights to go with it!

    Don't get me wrong, this is F'n bad ass, but having that many monitors while playin a game would get annoying imho, because the fact the bezels on the monitors would annoy the HELL out of me.

    if they made super thin bezel panels that were like .25" then that would be fine but most bezels are .5"

    I sure hope we start seeing a flood of OLED displays. I think the bezels can go quite thin with those.

    Actually the bezel is a waste of space, after replacing laptop screens the metal reinforcement edge is only about 1/16 wide, and you could make them thinner.
