    That the normal consumer will never see on sale ? (like the famous Platinum Edition cards ).

    With the thick black borders in between the monitors, AMD should have sided with LG and their new borderless TV:

    Hopefully this card will somehow translate into good gaming machines for the single monitor user.
    I occasionally use a dual monitor for work, especially when writing manuals, but im ok with just the 1 monitor for gaming.

    lol crazy but how many people are really going to wire up 6 monitors for one image?

    even if you had enough money, you still wouldnt want the monitor borders dividing up your screen lol

    Except "borderless" for LG refers to wireless transmission of data rather than any edgeless screen technology.

    Multiscreen setups are already pretty affordable for non-gaming applications. I just picked up 3x nearly new Dell 1908FP screens on ebay for £205. Combined with with a £20 USB DVI/VGA graphic adapter from eBuyer and a secondhand Ergotron LX stand, I now have a (in my eyes) beautiful 3840x1024 setup with very narrow borders connected to an ordinary business laptop docking station for £300 all in.

    Windows XP handles the display management just fine and having a central primary screen with two peripheral monitors works really well for the type of work I do. It also means that I don't have a screen bezel directly in front of me (as you would with a 2, 4 or 6 screen setup) so it feels very comfortable.

    Of course, this setup would be pretty abysmal for a gaming rig, but it's a demonstration of what can be achieved at very moderate expense.

    Re: News - ATI Eyefinity technology to drive six screens and 7.680x3,200 resolution

    I'm already running a triple screen gaming rig by using an ati 4870 plus a radeon 3000 card. Softth is then installed and allows for the single 4870 to render all three screens and then pass the output for the two side monitors to the second card to display them - hence the need for only a cheap secondary card. Works well in games like burnout and grid as you get to see the cars coming up the side of you. Yet to try it in X3 but that looks promising.

    I might be tempted to upgrade to one of these cards if a single card can display to three monitors. Allows the use of the second pci-e slot for crossfire then.

    Terry Pratchett for one, when asked why he had 6 monitors, his response was because 8 don't fit on his desk. This would be rather nice for market traders as well. While these things can be done with multiple cards it would be rather nice to have a single card to do it as overlays can then span monitors. Having a center monitor as well as left and right the boarders aren't so bad as they are not in the middle of your view.

    6 monitors? Pah, that's nothing. This picture shows one of the stations in the control room for my experiment... nine 30" monitors. I think the minimum number of monitors for any one station in that room is probably four 24" monitors... and then people bring their laptops as well:

    I agree with the above. Sure it might be good for stores/traders to show off the latest games but i would much prefer to use a single large monitor for gaming.
