AMD Shows off 24 Panel Eyefinity on DirectX 11 Graphics Cards

AMD is showing off a brand new technology today called Eyefinity. AMD's next-generation of DirectX 11 graphics cards come with support for up to to six independent displays, which allows you the ability to connect anywhere from one to six displays to just one video card. AMD says that the experience is unlike anything you have ever seen before.

This is ATI Eyefinity to the extreme! You are looking at 24 panels and 55 Megapixels of video content coming from one PC that is running multi-GPU technology!

That's pretty trick. I would rather see them do something that would boost their FPS though on a single monitor. However, I think to be able to use 3-6 monitors would definitely be a game changer for some types of games and applications.

Well they are coming out with a new series of DirectX 11 cards, which are faster than anything they have ever produced.That should count right? Eyefinity is just one new feature of the DirectX 11 cards. The details of the card are under NDA, but if you look at our front page news I posted some rumored specs that might be of interest to you.

Public Knowledge That AMD Announced This morning:
AMD did say the card had 2.15 billion transistors
The compute power is over 2.5 teraflops - the Radeon 4xxx series had 1 teraflops of processing power

I have yet to see a game really taxes my GTX 260 enough that I consider the upgrade. Before the XBox 360 and PS3 it seems like there was a lot more push for newer tech than the complacency of game developers today.

Strange thing...
I was reading about this demo on other site and it was saying
AMD Eyefinity 24 Display Tech Demo On Linux

Last time I checked, Linux is not running DX11 :)
You completely miss the point by saying DirectX 11 Graphics Card since the demo was OpenGL.
Here is the link

No doubt, kind of weird, but usually I upgrade my video card once every 6 months in order to keep up with games. I'm gaming on a 1080p monitor and It's been about a year and I still have no problem with my GTX 260, I think if I pick up the GTX 295 and splurge it seems as if it will be good for a long while for once.

Until developers start taking advantage of DX 11 and kill the performance on older cards (i.e. our 260s).
