    Eyefinity wasnt for gaming orginaly at all. period. Sure Eyefinity 3 is being marketed that way because its the most accesible, efficient and quality experience (while gaming) version. This versions is for all those monitors that show EXAMPLES at expos or stores when u go to buy them ect Tech expos ect. It might show up alot of places but is a catalog type item.

    Example: Having the 1080p Transformers running in the store, so u make the choice u want in monitors.

    Its not a gaming card at all. Its NOT FOR YOU.... don't complain lol. Sure its an interesting feat given all the stuff u used to have to do or the media rigs u had to build to get the same thing at more cost and weaker specs but yes its useless to most. I used to work in best buy.. They'll want stuff like this. For all those monitors and maybe 10 TVS at a time.

    First, this card is not for gaming purposes. Second, for video editing, engineering, etc, etc this card will be cheaper than a matrox card, if you are used to pay 500 euros for a matrox card with 1gb and 4 display ports and for a little more you get another card with 4 times that memory and 3 times more connectors, who's your daddy?

    It would be nice if the detachable part could be installed in another slot if the above of the card. In other hand it makes easily to do crossfire.

    Great card

    For an info terminal, I'd say it may be more cost effective to get 4 cheaper cards with 3 outputs each, but I'm not sure how many you could find with 3 digital outs rather than 2 digital and 1 S-Video or something.

    I am really excited about this, If I cant get away with This card and 6-10 24"LED monitors for under 3k I will be stoked. I am a day trader by career, and the more real estate I have the more charts I can watch (and bigger too) the more research I can have, the more news feeds, more strategies everyday I look back and see I missed a few opportunities on securites I shoved to the side to make room or minimized, and I still do about 15 trades a day.

    This is a dream come true, but ill need a bigger desk, or move it to my wall and do some wall mounting, quick question however, I have 2 30 inch monitors right now, will I be able to run them at 1600p and have the smallers at their native resolutions or will I have to bring down the 30's?

    Why would you need a 5970 to do something that simple? You can't justify the ridiculousness of this card with that.

    yes, i think you can do this (because every monitor have different control in controlling resolution)

    24 monitors

    having 24 monitors would be about as useful as having 24 projectors to project your screen against a building and sitting a mile away . to play games with .

    I would get this and just leave the extra 6 ports off, and have a 5970 with 2GB per gpu, the way it should be.
