Tom's Readers Get the Eyefinity Treatment

This past weekend, six lucky Tom's Hardware readers got to sit down with us here in our Culver City office. It's always fun to meet and chat with readers of both Hardware and Guide, be it at a convention or LAN party... but it’s always more fun on our home turf, especially when we have a surprise in store for them.

In conjunction with AMD and EA, Tom's brought the readers in to play with a top-of-the-line Eyefinity gaming rig, complete with a Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition processor, 5870 graphics card, and three Dell 2310 23-inch (1920x1080) monitors. The day was replete with Dragon Age: Origins, Modern Warfare 2, and Supreme Commander. Playing any game at a 5760x1080 resolution is going to be amazing, but Dragon Age was especially fun because it's optimized for an Eyefinity setup.

Games were played, prizes were won, and plenty of Red Bull and soda was consumed, without a doubt. What you see is here merely a glimpse of the days' events, as there will be plenty of pictures and video over the next week. Stay tuned!

    wow, i. want. that...a 955 with a 5870 isn't all that expensive either! What kinda fps were you getting at that resolution? and did you have all the settings maxed out?
