AMD Radeon HD 6870 CrossFire with 5x1 Eyefinity

With the performance of more mainstream cards on the rise, monitor prices on a downward slide, and support for 5x1 Eyefinity available (sort of), we decided to see what a pair of Radeon HD 6870 cards running in CrossFire mode could do with a quintet of screen out in front.

The cleanest way to pull off a 5x1 Eyefinity configuration, without using an array of adapters, is with a card that has at least five, similar outputs, connected to matching monitors. To that end, we got our hands on a pair of PowerColor Radeon HD 6870 2GB Eyefinity 6 Edition cards and five Dell 22” screens with DisplayPort inputs...

It's an exciting technology and I agree that there need to be better displays to make full use of eyefinity. In the meantime, I'm very excited to see the new generation of video cards chew up any game in their path. The hardware is a generation ahead of the software.

I neck starts to hurt after a few hours of BF3 on my 40in. I would be in traction if I had something like Optimus has up there. Plus I would need another room
