This is AMD, how are you liking Eyefinity so far?" "Well, you've ruined me for single display gaming. I can't go back to a single display now!" [laughing] "Great! That's what we want to do for the world, ruin everyone for single panel gaming! Bwahaha!
Summary: If you are running ATI Radeon HD Eyefinity 6 as a single video card, the 2GB frame buffer is not going to help you much in high Eyefinity resolution situations. There are some exceptions, like AvP, but mostly you are going to be GPU limited and not able to tap the potential of the 2GB frame buffer. The real benefits of the Eyefinity 6 video card not realized until you combine it with another and enable CrossFireX.
Summary: While the ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition supports up to 6 displays, we are going to be performance testing in the more popular 3x1 configuration. We are going to get a the heart of the video card and see if the 2GB of memory on Eyefinity 6 is really beneficial in Eyefinity resolutions with single GPU as well as CrossFireX.
ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition: AMD hits one for six
31 March 2010
Conclusion: AMD's 2GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition is something of a double-edged sword. The idea behind it, and the theory, is worthy of praise, but the current end results leave plenty to be desired. Aimed at the enthusiast space, the combination of the card and up to six monitors can cost well in excess of a thousand pounds. For that amount, most users will want to crank up the latest games to ultra-high resolutions with maximum image quality.

Conclusion: Overall, the Deviltech Devil 9700 DTX has impressed us. The given gaming performance turns out very high due to the Core i7 830QM and Radeon HD 5879.

We will give you all the gritty details of the HD 5800 Series, and show you just how well the new flagship ATI Radeon HD 5870 accelerates games. Can you say, “I like twice as much performance in the same power envelope.
Conclusion: As the benchmark results clearly showed, the Radeon HD 5870 is outstanding. By packing double the stream processors, ATI has quite simply created a monster of a GPU. It easily outperformed the GeForce GTX 285, and was more than a match for the GeForce GTX 295. We cannot imagine how fast the upcoming Radeon HD 5870 X2 (aka Hemlock) would perform. Performance aside, ATI has also done exceedingly well in terms of improving the power efficiency.
Creating the Juggernaut - ATI Radeon HD 5870 CrossFireX Analysis
27 November 2009
Conclusion: From our results, we can see that two Radeon HD 5870 cards can work as well, if not better than two Radeon HD 4870 X2 cards. Bearing in mind that a single 4870 X2 boasts dual 4870 chips, this is in fact not a fair match at all - four GPUs on two Radeon HD 4870 X2 cards versus two GPUs on the pair of Radeon HD 5870. This is a testament to the sheer might of the new Cypress XT chip. Overall, there is little to separate the two cards.

Nå er det imidlertid ATI som er først ute, og førsteinntrykket er godt.
