A few months back, AMD announced that it had lured Raja Koduri back from Apple and installed him as the new Corporate Vice President of its Visual Computing division. Koduri was a long time AMD employee who left for Apple, but came back to AMD at a relatively tumultuous time. Why someone as prominent as Mr. Koduri would leave the most valuable company in the world for a struggling AMD had many people scratching their heads. But at AMD’s GPU Tech event currently taking place Hawaii, Raja explained why he came back and also hinted at some upcoming technology, which should be revealed soon.... Read more...
Remember when LeBron James talked about winning not one championship, not two, three, four, five, six, or even seven? Apparently the number he was looking for was zero, which is half a dozen less than the number of displays TUL Corporation's new PowerColor HD7870 Eyefinity 6 graphics card supports simultaneously. That's right, this spunky card can drive not one, not two, not three, four, or five, but SIX monitors all by itself via six mini DisplayPorts, which "allows gamers to enhance productivity to get more things done at once, also delivering the most vivid HD gaming experience with wider view."...

AMD's Financial Analyst Day last week contained very little information about the company's plans for its workstation graphics division, but Sunnyvale remains committed to professional graphics. That was the emphatic message from the FirePro personnel we spoke to about this launch; we'll have a review of the card up in the not-too-distant future. The V3900 replaces the V3800 and is the entry-level counterpart to the V5900 and V7900 we reviewed earlier this year. Compared to its predecessor, the V3900 is a major upgrade. It sports double the RAM (1GB), uses the Turks GPU derived from AMD's 6800-series,... Read more...
At first we thought HIS was somehow trying to target real-time strategy gamers with its new Radeon HD 6970 IceQ Eyefinity RTS graphics card. Turns out RTS in this case stands for "Ready-to-See" with HIS trying to bring multi-monitor gaming via AMD's Eyefinity technology to the masses. What's different about this card is that it supports up to 3-way Eyefinity setups through any of its connectors and not just via DisplayPort. Pretty rad, right? We think so. The card comes with two mini-DisplayPort connectors, two DVI connectors, and an HDMI port. Normally you'd need multiple displays with DisplayPort... Read more...
In this latest episode of HotHardware's Two and a Half Geeks webcast Dave, Iyaz and Marco discuss the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet with Android 3.1, AMD's Radeon HD 6870 Eyefinity 6 Edition CrossFire with 5x1 Eyefinity, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 ultra-light laptop, and AMD’s recent reintroduction of the 'FX' brand. And as always we have details of our awesomely, exciting contest in which a reader can win a custom built gaming rig!

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... Read more...
Way back in September of ’09, AMD launched the Radeon HD 5800 series, and along with it officially unveiled its Eyefinity multi-display technology, which now pervades all Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 series cards in one form or another. Leading up to the release of the 5800 series, AMD tried to keep Eyefinity a close guarded secret, so its arrival was a pleasant surprise for most consumers and a not so pleasant one for rival NVIDIA perhaps. Dual and multi-screen gaming wasn’t new per say, just ask die-hard Flight Simulator fans who have been doing it for years.  However, AMD’s... Read more...
Today we'll be looking at a couple of new AMD FirePro workstation-class graphics cards, the FirePro V7900 and FirePro V5900. With the AMD FirePro V7900, professional users are treated to 1280 stream processors, 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and 160GB/s of peak memory bandwidth. The AMD FirePro V5900 provides 512 stream processors, a 2GB frame buffer, and peak memory bandwidth of 64GB/s. Both cards come with single-slot cooling solutions and multiple I/O ports for some multiple monitor action... AMD FirePro V7900 and V5900 Professional Graphics Cards... Read more...
It has been a while since we last evaluated a workstation-class graphics card from the FirePro product line. The V9800 launched in September 2010 and was officially the last card to sport the ATI logo. Since then, AMD has released its Cayman-based Radeon HD 6900 cards for the consumer market, among many other Radeon HD 6000 series cards. It was only a matter of time before the new architecture made its way into the professional FirePro line. Today we'll be looking at a couple of new AMD FirePro models, specifically, the V7900 and V5900. A quick glace below outlines some of the important specifications... Read more...
The product we’ll be featuring here today, the AMD Radeon HD 6990, should come as no surprise to anyone that even remotely stays on top of the PC graphics scene. News of the Radeon HD 6990’s arrival has been circulating for many months now, although back in the early days it was referred to by its codename—Antilles. Antilles was the codename given to the dual-Cayman GPU powered graphics card that would eventually top AMD’s graphics card line-up and supplant the Radeon HD 5970 that’s served the company so well, since its release way back in November of ’09. While... Read more...

AMD is adding to its FirePro family by announcing the ATI FirePro V9800. This new professional graphics card is capable of supporting up to six monitors with ATI Eyefinity technology. When connecting six monitors via the six Mini DisplayPort outputs, you’ll get a desktop resolution of up to 5760 x 2160. The card has 4GB of GDDR5 memory and is powered by 1,600 stream processors. The ATI FirePro V9800 has an estimated retail price of $3,499. AMD Introduces ATI FirePro™ V9800 – the First and Only Professional Graphics Card Capable of Powering Six Independent Displays Designed for... Read more...
As summer winds down, the professional graphics market, it appears, is just starting to heat up. About a month ago, we tested the Fermi based Quadro 6000 and 5000 graphics cards from NVIDIA. Although they were a few months late to the party, our results revealed the Quadro models held a measurable performance advantage over ATI's then flagship product, the FirePro V8800. But as expected, the red team has stepped their game up by offering a new workstation card that looks to close the gap while offering multi-monitor support that NVIDIA can't match currently. The FirePro V9800 offers similar features... Read more...
A few weeks back, AMD quietly released a couple of new graphics cards in the Radeon HD 5500 series. For a while there, starting with the Radeon HD 5870 in late September of last year, it seemed like AMD was releasing a new series of graphics cards aimed at different price points, practically every few weeks. Things slowed down a bit once the company had a complete top-to-bottom line-up of DX11 and Eyefinity capable cards from prices ranging from about $49 to $600, but obviously AMD wasn’t quite done beefing up the Radeon HD 5000 series. The recently released Radeon HD 5500 series cards differed... Read more...
