Eyefinity to bring DirectX11, 7680×4800, multi-monitor happiness to select few…

Take any mind blowing, wallet raping, eye melting gaming rig or big screen you can think of and throw it out of your mind. AMD’s up and coming new hotness, graphics cards packin’ the DirectX11 moniker have some truly impressive muscle under the hood. How much muscle? Well, lets start with the fact that the new cards will support Display Port technology allowing you to daisy chain monitor after monitor via USB. Even better is that the new DX11 AMD cards also support running said daisy chained monitors as one monitor. And the icing on top you ask? The example shown above (more pictures inside) consists of 6-30″ Dell monitors corralled together and pumping out an astonishing 7680 x 4800 quintuple HD resolution. *Jaw drops…drool trickling out…speechless*. The possibilities are enough to make any geek lose their vocabulary for long spans of time. Gaming, PC use, TV, etc. The list of uses goes on.

The lucky folks of Maximum PC were able to physically see this visual monstrosity in the flesh pushing XPlane 9 and Far Cry 2 at full resolution at a respectable 12-20 frames per second. Another batch of lucky folk at HotHardware had the privilege of seeing an upcoming DX11 game, Dirt 2, demoed at 7680 x 3200 and noted “respectable frame rates” were displayed. Now, looking back at the earlier 12-20 fps figure isn’t very reassuring as 12-20 is hardly “acceptable” in the gaming world. Though at 7680 x 4800/3200, pretty much any other set up would choke, die, and subsequently explode.

As promised, a few more pics to gaze over just after the click.
