ATI has announced a new top of the line graphics card which can connect up to six monitors simultaneously. Its name: the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition.

Fitting into a 16x PCI-Express slot on the motherboard, and taking up the same amount of space usually reserved for two additional cards, this graphics card carries an onboard video chipset running at 850 MHz with 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory running at 1.2 GHz.

It has been announced as being compatible with the Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 operating system, while also supporting the DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0, DirectCompute 11, OpenGL 3.2, OpenCL 1.0, CrossFireX and Eyefinity technologies.

It is capable of displaying up to 6 display devices at the same time either connected by HDMI, DVI or though a Display Port, through the use of mini DisplayPort adaptors aimed at converting to HDMI, DVI or DisplayPort (five are provided).

The Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition video card has an advertised energy use of 188 Watts when in use and 27 Watts when resting.

ATI will be selling this top of the line video solution for 479 dollars, with it being aimed at video or photo professionals, and gamers looking for greater immersion.
